Dr. Ady Milman’s Theme Park Management class recently visited SeaWorld Orlando, where they were treated to a behind-the-scenes tour of the facility. Tour guide Brian Schmitt, Operations Lead and Rosen College alumnus, led the students around the world-class destination.

Of course, what day is complete without a little free time to explore the park? Before calling it a day, Dr. Milman’s students took a moment to experience Manta, SeaWorld’s newest roller coaster where guests fly face-down in a horizontal position.

Site visits such as this bring real-world applications to the students and help distinguish the Rosen College curriculum from other hospitality management programs.
