San Diego Power Outage Doesn't Affect SeaWorld & Legoland

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO -- The penguins, polar bears and walruses at San Diego's SeaWorld will be staying cool during an outage that has affected millions of people in Southern California, Arizona and Mexico.

SeaWorld spokeswoman Kelly Terry says the amusement park that allows visitors to see marine life up close runs on its own generators.

Park-goers were allowed to stay after power was lost at around 3:30 p.m. They were treated to a special performance by Shamu in the early evening.

Terry says some park-goers who thought they didn't have enough gas to drive home were allowed to hang out in SeaWorld's parking lot to wait out traffic.

At Legoland, spokeswoman Julie Estrada says a few riders were trapped after rides lost power, but were safely removed.
