I was just looking through San Diego on google maps just thinking to myself how incredible the city is. I'm going to purchase my house there eventually but right now, I just daydream and have googlemaps to view. So I got to SeaWorld San Diego. I was thinking how great it is that SD is this family-friendly town with this nice theme park for kids and families to go to but how come there are not that many? I know there is Belmont Park, a Soak City in Chula Vista and Legoland in Carlsbad but Soak City is kinda small, and Carlsbad is far away. How come there are not any more major parks in SD like Knotsberry Farm, Six Flags, or Busch Gardens? I think SD would highly benefit from having another one.

I think we have enough. If you want theme parks, then San Diego is not for you. Orlando is. Enjoy.

We have the zoo and Safari park, which are both huge draws. We also have a LOT more to do here for a good time besides paying for manufactured fun... Most people here would probably be PISSED if anyone tried to build another theme park here.

We have a mountain-climber theme park. (Mount Woodson, Stonewall Peak, Black Mountain)

We have a water-based theme park. (string of beaches all the way from IP to Oceanside)

We have a survival-based theme park. (Anza-Borrego Desert State Park)

Heck ... San Diego *is* a theme park!

And what is so cool about our Survival-based theme park is that your survival is not assured, so you can experience real excitement when you trek about around here.

Whether its trapped in caves, lost in the desert, bitten by snakes, bashed against the rocks of Sunset Cliffs, getting caught in a rip tide, getting entangled in a submerged wreck while scuba diving, or just slipping off a cliff or having a cliff slip off on you, there is all sorts of fun to be had in San Diego's wild places!

Most people or just you? Because I have a hard time believing that in a military town with dozens of families, the majority population would be pissed at a new theme park being built. Especially in a town where alot of transplants have complained that there is nothing to do.

I'm all for building another themepark here. There was a proposal by a Mariott/Nickelodeon collaboration for the NTC area by the airport but the plans went down the drain along with the economy.


Here's a link to the 2007 UT article

Thanks for your opinion. I thought I was the only one who thought this way. I think that theme park would have been pretty awesome. But funnily enough it didn't really look like one to me.
