Sea World Australia could be set to close its Bermuda Triangle ride to make way for a new attraction, if text on the park's official website is to be believed.
The Sea World website's maintenance page states that "Bermuda Triangle is presently closed while we continue to develop new and exciting attractions at Sea World." Although it is possible that Bermuda Triangle is only closed temporarily to allow work to take place nearby, the statement has been widely interpreted as meaning that a replacement attraction is in the works.
Bermuda Triangle opened in 1994, replacing Lassiter's Lost Mine and utilising the same ride system. Costing over a million dollars to construct, the attraction featured elaborate theming designed to take guests on an adventure through a series of mysterious volcanoes. However, several of the ride's special effects have broken down or been decommissioned over the last few years, leading to speculation that it could be replaced.
Bermuda Triangle was closed for routine maintenance on October 18, with Sea World setting a date of November 30 for it to reopen. However, this date has now been dropped and the park has not yet confirmed what the future holds for the attraction.
