CEO Joel Manby cited customer feedback as the reason for the move in an announcement Monday to investors.
    
Manby said the park would offer a different kind of Orca experience and focus on the animal's natural setting and behaviors.
    
The news came days after SeaWorld Entertainment Inc. reported third-quarter earnings missed Wall Street expectations.
    
The Orlando, Florida-based company has seen revenue drop since the release of the documentary "Blackfish" that criticized its treatment of killer whales in captivity.
