Travel Channel Tapings - Busch Gardens and Sea World

April 5, 6, 10 and 11, 2012


Greetings Florida Region:

Both SeaWorld and Busch Gardens are in need of ACE members to assist them with an upcoming Travel Channel special.

A production company is filming a special entitled “Extreme Coasters” to broadcast on the Travel Channel. Coasters from both parks will be featured on the special that will air later this year.

Sea World:

The Travel Channel is going to be at SeaWorld on Thursday, April 5 and Friday, April 6. Filming time is 7:15-10 AM both days. Taping will be on Kraken and Manta. You are welcome to stay in the park after shooting is complete.

Busch Gardens:

The Travel Channel is going to be at Busch Gardens the mornings of Tuesday, April 10 and Wednesday, April 11 to shoot Montu and SheiKra. Filming time is 7:30-9:30 both days.

In addition to needing members to fill seats, both parks are also specifically looking for a member or two to volunteer for on-camera interviews to showcase the coaster from the fan perspective.

As you can see from the dates listed, time to sign up is EXTREMELY short. I apologize for the short-notice, but I myself just got the final information this morning. If you are interested in participating in any or all of the shoots, please follow this procedure:

1. Reply to this email (please do not start another email)

2. List each participants name

3. Beside each name list the event day(s) you can attend.

4. The best email address you can be reached at - one email for entire group is preferable

With the short notice, you need to sign up for the SeaWorld taping by 4pm Wednesday, April 4th. If you are able to assist at Busch Gardens, I would need your information by Sunday, April 8th.

I realize this may be to short notice for many of you, but please understand I just got the final information today. You are more than welcome to sign up for all 4 days or a day at each park if you so desire.
