    the coasters that they generally would have passed on by otherwise not visiting the park. I don't think a lot of people realize what great rides SeaWorld has. We all know, but those that go to Universal and Disney usually couldn't care less about SeaWorld. That may change when/if they get bodies into the event.

    This is painfully accurate.  My sister goes to Orlando all the time to go to Disney multiple times a year and has never ever set foot in SWO.  I asked her why and it's because "well I sent to SeaWorld in San Antonio and I feel like once you've seen one you've seen them all" and my argument of "they have way better coasters in Orlando and the park is just generally much better" had no effect also she had "why would I spend Disney time at SeaWorld?"  It's definitely the black sheep park in Orlando no question.  

  2. ^Thanks for the tip. I'm more likely going out of my way for a classic wild ride/water ride than a new big giga. It's got to the point where fun trumps credit count. Ah, to be over 40.


    Skyrides, wild slides, classic flats, classic coaster vehicles here I come!


    Fun beats bigger - I spent 3 days at Knoebels last year but only 5 hours at my local corporate park (on 2 visits). Gotta ride Whizzer


    I’ve also figured that out and it’s why Knoebels is my favorite park. I do love awesome coasters but I’ve decided to not be a credit whore like I once was in high school because the number isn’t worth increasing by putting my 6’3 ass into a kiddie coaster car. As long as a roller coaster isn’t violently awful and painful I don’t care if it’s not the greatest layout of all time and enjoy the ride for what it is because I’m on a roller coaster and not auditing or something.

  3. This will be a very nice addition to SFA for sure assuming it is what were all 99% sure what it is. SFA has had a few nice additions the last few years. No major coasters really but I like the adding of nice flats. The only addition I wasn't crazy about was Splashwater Falls...………..you know because I am single with no kids (and yes I have very similar feelings about "Coconut Shores" )

  4. I've reached a point where I am happy when a park is building "A" coaster period. I just like when they improve their overall value by adding a new attraction period. I must admit being somebody with no kids when the addition is entirely kid-friendly I am very...……..unexcited but I see the big picture and I see it as good for the park. The details like height, speed, etc. aren't crazy relevant I just like when parks build fun rides.


    Orion looks absolutely awesome. If Kings Island was my home park I would be absolutely thrilled. I like that it has the big wave turn and some clear elements that distinguish it from the other B&M Gigas. Kings Island was already very appealing as is and now I REALLY want to go there.

  5. My final predictions before the ride is announced.


    Name: Doesn't matter; people will b!tch.

    Height: Doesn't matter; people will b!tch.

    Speed: Doesn't matter; people will b!tch.

    Length: Doesn't matter; people will b!tch.

    Ride Time: Doesn't matter; people will b!tch.

    G-Forces: Doesn't matter; people will b!tch.

    Color scheme: Doesn't matter; people will b!tch.

    Number of bolts used in the construction: Doesn't matter; people will b!tch.

    About a million other useless statistics: Doesn't matter; people will b!tch.



    This is one of my favorite posts I've ever seen on here. I honestly don't even care about the numbers most of the time anymore unless they're just like super slow .
