The original concept behind SeaWorld in 1964, was a restaurant where you could watch a marine show as you ate. The founders were four UCLA alumni named Milton C. Shedd, Ken Norris, David Demott, and George Millay. After the initial phases, they determined an underwater restaurant was not feasible. So, the decided to make it a theme park instead.
The first SeaWorld in San Diego opened on March 21, 1964 with a handful of dolphins and sea lions, six attractions, and 22 acres near Mission Bay. Still, people loved it right away, with over 400,000 guests in the first year. The Seventies and Eighties saw expansions into Ohio, Florida, and Texas. Ohio later closed because the winter months were too extreme.
In the Late Eighties, SeaWorld was acquired by the Anheuser-Busch Company, to go with their other ventures like Busch Gardens and Budweiser.
