ORLANDO, Fla., Dec. 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Santa has a lot more to work with: A host of SeaWorld ® -inspired holiday gifts make their debut this season. From adorable penguins to plush polar bears, the park's iconic marine animals will be featured in a sleigh-full of new toys, accessories, apparel and home goods.
The holiday treasure trove includes a first-of-its-kind MONOPOLY ®: SeaWorld Wildlife Conservation Edition, a new version of America's favorite board game that rewards players who invest in animals' natural habitats. In this edition, traditional Chance and Community cards become "SeaWorld Cares" and "SeaWorld Rescue" cards, while the game's houses and hotels have been transformed into animal research and rescue facilities.
"Rather than buying real estate, this version encourages players to invest in the welfare and sustainability of animals," said Scott Helmstedter, Chief Creative Officer for SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment. "We worked closely with our partners at USAOPOLY to create a conservation-focused game that's both fun and educational."The MONOPOLY® SeaWorld Wildlife Conservation Edition, which retails for $34.95, is available at SeaWorld's three marine life parks and its online gift portal, shamushop.com.
