    During a Town Hall that took place at SeaWorld Orlando this past Saturday, SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment's CEO reaffirmed plans to open up a park in the Middle East, including a SeaWorld Rescue Center. No further details, including specific location, were revealed. At least we know it's still in the works!
