    Terrific book! Marineland was one of my favorite places of all time. Around 1985 I was delighted to see Bubbles, Orky and Corky, the dolphins, sea lions and walruses, the Giant Fish tank, all the animals again. If I had a crystal ball I would have taken lots of pictures and shopped the gift shop for souvenirs, but I had no way of knowing that day would be my last visit. Marineland opened before I was born – I just assumed it would always be there. I still mourn the loss of that fabulous place and its animals that gave so many people such great joy. It was much more than an oceanarium/ amusement park and even though it is gone now, Marineland will always live on in the fond memories of people who loved it. This book is a wonderful tribute to that fine place. Thanks to Jim Patryla for a trip back in time. The book also prompted me make the happy discovery that Bubbles and Corky are still alive and well in San Diego!

    "A Photographic Journey Back to Marineland" I love the book. It brings back so many wonderful memories when I used to go with my grandmother. The pictures are beautiful. I would recommend this book to everyone.

    "Marineland !" I revisited the ruins of Marineland about a year ago and realized how much I missed it. Baja Reef, petting the dolphins, the little stuffed toys, the whole deal. Finding this book and the CD of sound from the shows was incredible. In digging up old family super8 films, I discovered that (well, like probably millions of other people) I have footage of Bubbles, Orky, Corky, the baseball game, the wavy slide - all that. The whole park is razed now, but there are a number of shots in this book of not only the animals, but the park itself- pictures you won't find on any of the old postcards. And the detailed story of the park's closing was interesting - and infuriating. It's hard to believe they got away with it. Anyway, highly recommended to anyone else who grew up at Marineland. I have a Marineland-related project of my own, and if Mr. Patryla wouldn't mind getting in contact with me, I'd like to ask permission to use some of his materials.
