Thanks for the great info.


Item 201. SeaWorld Master Plan Update – Presenter: Jim Lake, Park President Request support/approval of SeaWorld’s Master Plan update

Looking at the City of San Diego ACFR or CAFR the “Mission Bay Park Rent and Concessions” Special Fee Restricted Fund is put into the City’s General Capital Outlay Budgeted. The City’s documents. only show Revenues for the “Mission Bay Park Rent and Concessions”, not Expenses or Fund Balances.

The City stated Mission Bay Park Revenue is down due to Seaworld’s declining revenue. Seaworld would probably make more money turning themselves into a Water Park and Pools.

FY-2021 Revenue = $21,783,000
FY-2020 Revenue = $25,868,000
FY-2019 Revenue = $31,439,000
FY-2018 Revenue = 32,574,000
