The real question that comes to mind is will this ride actually get approved to be built?? I realize it's part of the master plan, but I do remember how hard of a time they had getting Atalantis built and the entire reason manta is only 30 feet was to make getting approval much easier. This must be why they are announcing the ride so early..... It will be interesting to see what happens over the next few months, being a San Diego native and current resident I know how difficult it is to get any major projects built!!

Why do I still have a donkey title???

I don't think they would make an announcement if they werent confident it will be approved. Plus maybe the city of San Diego realizes the trouble Sea World is in and will be more cooperative. Sea World brings in so much revenue for the city, now isn't the time to be difficult lol

It seems like the park is doing their due diligence announcing it this early and trying to make the skyline impact as minimal as possible with the color scheme.
Top 5 Wood- Phoenix, Boulder Dash, El Toro, Voyage, Cornball Express
Top 5 Steel- Iron Rattler, Fury 325, Twisted Colossus, Millennium Force, Phantom's Revenge
Top 5 Parks- Disneyland, Knoebels, Cedar Point, Magic Kingdom, Busch Gardens Williamsburg

While in rare circumstances stuff happens after the fact, large development projects (including theme park rides) usually involve a lot of "back channel" work before being presented to the public. I would guess Sea World has been working with all the agencies to have everything ready for full approval prior to the actual hearings.

I wish they could do a dual loading track station like Mr Freeze and slide back and forth with the trains ready for launch. That would help out with the ride capacity.

I like how SeaWorld combines these new coasters with new learning experiences and exhibits, too. The did some nice work on both of their Manta coasters.

^ I agree. They do a great job with the exhibits. Sometimes, the exhibit is better than the ride!

I hope it all goes smoothly, but SeaWorld San Diego is not the park to use as an example...
