  1. Oh, by the way, Happy SeaWorld San Diego month! March 2014 was officially recognized by our mayor to be SeaWorld San Diego Month in honor of their 50th anniversary. (I think this also suggests that bill will be stomped to the ground.)
  2. Hey guys, I had an awesome evening at SeaWorld San Diego last night for the team member preview of explorer's reef! The place looks great. I frequently forgot that we were still in SWSD. There was a variety of entertainment, some great food, and a first look at the summer's new fireworks show (they got rid of the Into the Blue music!) I have plenty more pictures, so let me know if you want to see more. Schedule of events Bubble man entertainment that will be around the park this summer They brought back the band for this year! Much nicer entrance. Wave lights up occasionally. On your way out Just one of the many exhibit photos I took. There's a lot to see and experience right up front!
  3. Breaking news! New baby killer whale at SWSD. Just born this morning. http://www.nbcsandiego.com/news/local/baby-killer-whale-orca-seaworld-191242771.html
  4. This is exciting! I love the idea of a trackless, moving motion simulator combined with the on-screen effects that will be provided for the penguin. This should be very interesting!
  5. I don't know what others think, but I will be relieved if this wingrider name has nothing to do with a winged creature Personally, I think "High Excitement Jet-Boat-Car" fits in well with TTD
  6. Manta @ SWSD. I've witnessed a walk-o-shame every time I've been. Even last weekend, I saw one that really surprised me (and I'm sure they didn't see it coming either). Manta is already notorious for its weight discrimination, but what can they do?! Would it really be better if they started screening more people at the entrance just because they "appear large"? They apparently have an extra train designed with the heavyset in mind, but that has yet to be implemented... (plus, how does something like that work? Would you board like the handicapped entrance for Space Mountain?) That said, the seats are realllllllly snug and cozy for the "average person"....which is good only for the "average person"
  7. if I can handle them.... ha! You mean the $30 wednesday-thursday wristbands?
  8. ^we'll be staying within walking distance, so no driving just getting up early and getting to the gates for disneyland early I really hope you're right about the crowd being light, haha. Only other time I went was during Spring Break....another crowd nightmare
  9. Awesome! I've never been to the fair. I'm looking at prices and trying to decide what to do. (there are 2 of us). I mainly can't decide if game coupons are worth it and how many ride coupons are worth getting. Do you ever go for the mega packs or the one-price wristbands? Or just the $15 25-ticket ride sheet? What do you guys do?
  10. Going to Cars Land tomorrow!!! Can't wait! But we're staying an extra day to go to Disneyland on Friday (might as well ). I can't make up my mind whether the Disneyland crowd will be at all relieved due to DCA opening on that day. People's thoughts? What will Disneyland be like friday?
  11. I was 11 when we went to Cedar Point for the first time. Skipping over every other ride in the park, my dad drug me straight to Corkscrew and said "we're riding this, you and me, right now". I felt sick. I didn't want my first coaster to go upside-down. Turns out, after some convincing, I got on the ride and LOVED it!!! Then I rode every ride that I could in the park. Now I've been there every year since and Corkscrew is another outdated Arrow. Roller Coaster Tycoon also helped fuel my early obsession
  12. ^^I blame the seagulls for vandalism. They crapped all over Manta, even before the thing started testing! back in April...
  13. That's so frustrating! If I ever saw someone doing that, I'd slap them. Respect the ride And yeah, they gotta put up a make-shift fence or something for the aquarium, because line-jumping is just uncalled-for. Can't wait to ride again! I hear it's changed so much over the weekend. (also, I want to ride at Night )
  14. Disneyland for Cars Land in June, then Knotts for the first time ever! Then Magic Mountain to relive some of my favorites Still haven't been on Green Lantern of course, SeaWorld SD any weekend inbetween
  15. I actually really like the 2nd helix at the end Also, someone mentioned the screens being washed with light. I noticed that too, even with the room closed off before the launch, it seems like the projections weren't 100%. Maybe that's something they're still working on though. (did anybody notice that you hardly get to see any of the movie when you're in the front row? still, worth it) I really want to go back.... like right now... but I'm going to wait until the long weekend is over. Crowd forecasts are off the charts!
  16. I am so excited to finally update you guys! THIS RIDE IS FREAKING AMAZING! Even the video doesn't do it justice. - the Manta area isn't finished yet. There is a lot of landscaping, decorating, lighting, and work on the queue to be done before everything comes together. - the rocking back and forth of the car at the launch is pretty neat! It gives you a better view of the screen, and gives you a feeling of anticipation, like "ready.......set.........go!" - there is a negative G hill halfway through that is wicked. all the launches and banks feel much faster due to the close quarters. Manta really is an exciting ride I'm going to leave a lot of stuff out, else it wouldn't be fair to the TPR guys who are fortunate enough to go this week. But in short, come out to San Diego and Ride the Ray, Feel the Rush!. I look forward to the week's updates! Queue isn't finished yet, so there's just a long line construction near touch-ray pool neat ray-themed station 1st row is definitely worth the wait! Manta in action! hello little guy. if it weren't for you, Manta would never exist!
  17. with ambient light blocked off, that screen has to look incredible. Can't wait to get a taste! 1 week!
  18. I'll be there too! Disneyland side though, if you meant DCA I'm nervous though. It'll likely be worse than the spring break crowd.
  19. Amazing job with the set! I still have one of those screamin serpent tracks around in my basement, but haven't toyed around with it in quite some time. you may have inspired me! Always thought it was frustrating that gravity doesn't scale though. Maybe you could film it with a high speed camera!
  20. 1. I'd love to see a "custom view" as mentioned before. 2. Custom car designs. You should be able to specify weight, # and type of wheels, friction coefficient, drag coefficient, etc... but even something like having freedom to design the exterior, but leave the guts (interior) to the guy who knows best (Kinda like RC cars) 3. More import options for 3D models and scenery (other than .3ds. unless there are other options out there already...)
  21. Wow, I don't know why I didn't expect that sign to go there. A similar sign is in Florida, haha. I like this sign a lot better though!
  22. try to see if anything new is going on with the Antarctica construction!
  23. so true but hey, if they don't like Manta, they don't have to ride Manta! Makes the queue shorter for us
  24. lol! Cedar point should get rid of TTD, because you can see it in Frontierland......
