Love what they did with the rock work and queue. These rides are great, smooth, fast, and extremely re-rideable

I rode Electric Eel today and it's just as awesome as Tempesto! I'm sure you'll love it!

an article in the local paper about Submarine Quest's status as SBNO. Basically confirming its closed because it is an embarrassment.

Agreed, Submarine Quest is a huge embarassment and the park would be better off just scraping the ride, especially since Legoland is about to open a far superior subarmine ride. I don't know who was responsible for the commisison and design of this ride, but they botched it pretty badly.

Hola my fellow theme park junkies! =) The time has FINALLY arrived once again for me to visit a new park, and since I'm flying to Los Angeles tomorrow, I plan on taking a day drive July. 9 to San Diego for SeaWorld! This is my second SeaWorld park after Orlando, so I'm ready to compare the two. I have my admission ticket, quick que (plus one express pass for Electric Eel), and parking ticket. I'm definitely aiming for Electric Eel first because I've never been on a Sky Rocket II model, but any other tips I need to know about before I visit?

Stay until the park closes for Electric Ocean, don't miss Orca Encounter, try to marathon Electric Eel and Manta when it gets late, get a front row ride on Manta while doing that marathon, and look for a good Taco Shop outside of the park and get a carne asada/California burrito for dinner, you can't miss out on it.

This one is totally up to you, but don't forget that Belmont Park is only 2 miles away if you're interested in riding a historic wooden coaster. I'm planning a trip to SWSD later this month and I totally forgot Giant Dipper existed, so I'm thinking about heading over in the evening after SeaWorld and checking it out since I've never been.

Again, it's all up to you and how late you're planning on staying at SeaWorld, but I thought I would at least bring it up.

Beyond the rides, just be prepared for a potentially awful drive. That route between LA to SD has taken me 4 hours in the past with traffic.

Shipwreck Rapids is a good rapids ride and if it's the same as 2014, they have a single rider line that was almost always a walk-on.

It depends on when you leave. It can be done in 2-2.5 hours as well. I left Hollywood at 10AM for the SD Fair and was to Del Mar at 11:45.

Thanks everyone for the amazing tips! =) I made it to Long Beach, California safely and I plan on leaving early in the morning heading to San Diego. I think 6 AM is safe enough . . . I think. LOL. ;)
