    New Marineland Ride – Ocean Odyssey

    6 Comments

    As was mentioned before, Marineland will have a new ride this summer. Their web site has the following:

    Ocean Odyssey – Opening Soon! – new, family thrill ride. (42″ unless with adult. Minimum height requirement is 36″).

    I haven’t seen the ride, but I’ve come across a couple of things that shed a bit more light on it. The first one was a flyer that everyone in the Niagara Region received recently. One page had a very large picture of Ocean Odyssey.

    Also, during the last week of school, my son went to Marineland and brought home the map.

    It shows where the new ride will be. It is across the way from Hurricane Cove and the Flying Dragon. It was a wooded area, so they must have cut out some trees to make room for the ride.
