New Exhibit Makes a "Splash"

Posted on: Oct 31, 2005 @ 12:00:00 am

Please join us for a walk down Memory Lane as we present our most recent exhibit: George Millay: Waterpark Pioneer.
George Millay was the founder of both SeaWorld and Wet 'n Wild. In fact, he gave birth to the waterpark industry when he opened Wet'n Wild in Orlando, the world's first waterpark in 1977. Since the opening, other developers have tried to copy Millay's success, but Wet'n Wild remains the waterpark industry leader in originality and innovation.
Scheduled to run through the end of December, the exhibit features items on loan from Wet'n Wild Orlando and the Orange County Regional History Center.
In addition to vintage aerial photos of the property in the days before growth enveloped International Drive, the exhibit includes items such as "Splish and Splash" (Wet'n Wild mascots from the early days) and the original Wet'n Wild Barbie whose swimsuit changes color when she's plunged into cold water! Come check it out!
