SeaWorld Orlando (SWO) Discussion Thread

P. 263 - New Aquatica Slide!

Recommended Posts

The elusive hyper coaster finally coming to Florida. Here I thought Busch Gardens was the one to build a hyper first. Great addition to Sea World should be a crowd pleaser. Now the post BF healing can begin. Busch makes their attraction announcement tomorrow. Its a great time to be a pass holder.

AMEN!!! It's so dumb to me that a company (Premier) which made headlines and won awards and praise from all of us for taking OTSR's OFF of rides that didn't need it is now needlessly putting OTSR

Is this like spanking the monkeys?

The Ice Breaker animated POV looks pretty good, I think it will have a good amount of airtime and may be a surprise hit! With that being said can someone PLEASE explain to me why Premier insists on pu

Curse whoever mentioned the Morgan Hyper-lite but this will be great too

 

I was the one that mentioned it would be great if it was Hyper GTX..oh well it looks to be a fabulous coaster.

 

and don't forget Universal's NEW Water Park and the 450ft Starflyer!! it's going to be insane next year!

I like the curved drop over the lagoon--looks very cool.

Wow, I love it! B&Ms have always been my favorite type of coasters, and my all-time favorite is Leviathan, so I welcome any new speed coasters to the United States. I am very surprised it took so long for a hyper coaster to appear in Florida, and coaster fans and park guests alike will enjoy this new type of thrill to the Florida area: airtime!

 

I also like the fact that the three B&M coasters have a bit of uniform naming with sea creatures, Kraken, Manta, and now Mako. They all will compliment eachother nicely.

 

This is also probably one of the more interesting new color schemes I can remember in recent years.

Obviously not anything mindblowing but looks like a really fun ride, long as it's not too trimmed which new B&M hypers seem to be avoiding thankfully. It is a nice layout, has all a hyper really needs, lots of hills, decent speed and the few turns are a nice touch.

Even though I was hoping for an Intamin, I really don't even care anymore.. the concept art looks stunning and will probably look just as great once it's done! I love that they are redoing the area around Shark Encounter because it's so unnatural and I love that SeaWorld is starting to theme SWO and make it like an actual "sea world" instead of just ugly buildlings. I wonder if they are doing anything with the shark encounter itself! (Would love a 360 degree tunnel to combat the one at Sea Life)! Anyways, this is awesome and I love the color choice. Couldn't be happier, but now the waiting part comes in!

 

SeaWorld really wasn't kidding when they said they were going to be more agressively investing in their Orlando and San Diego locations. This coaster in addition to the Blue World project are making some great waves for SeaWorld, it's great to see the company back on their feet again!

I like this feature as well, I wonder if ther will be some kind of water element to splash the guest and interact with the ride like MANTA?

WOW! I CAN'T WAIT! I love the fact that SeaWorld Orlando and Busch Gardens Tampa are making their announcements really early while it took forever for Busch Gardens Williamsburg to make theirs for Tempesto.

 

One thing I am curious about is the angle of the drop. They could have marketed it also as the Steepest in Orlando but I believe Hollywood Rip, Ride, Rockit has that one.

 

This is going to be an amazing ride!!

Nope, it says on their website. No splash or water features. This is a 100% dry ride.

Mako looks like an awesome addition to the park and gives it a nice B&M trio with Manta and Kraken. SWO will now have three of the best coasters in Orlando and just became a must visit on my next trip to Florida. I only hope that SWSD gets something like Mako in the near future. There's still not a B&M hyper in Cali and I would love to see SWSD get the first one!

Looks like a very good reason to go back to SWO for something other than marine life. Won't take much to outshine the existing pair of B&Ms at the park.

I disagree with this statement. Both Kraken and Manta, particularly the former, are tough acts to follow.

To be fair, you weren't the first and/or only person in this thread to mention a Hyper GT-X. Here's something from April 24, 2015, but others could have easily mentioned it before that, I'm not sure. No worries!

 

Since the other two SWO coasters have inversions, I'm guessing this one might not? To be honest, when I first read the info about this new coaster, my first thought was a B&M Hyper. B&M Hypers don't do much for me personally, but SWO needs to do what is in its best interest. If that's what SWO wants, then that's fine. I'm not holding my breath, but it sure would be nice to see SWO get something like a Mack or Intamin (or even long shots like a Hyper GT-X or RMC).

Totally agree. Each is arguably the best of its type.

Everything about this coaster easily puts it in the top 3 COASTERS in Orlando, and I'm not even a huge fan of B&M hypers! I really love that the ride actually has a good chunk left after the MCBR cough*Intimidator*cough*GateKeeper*cough

 

Congrats to SeaWorld and I'm sure they'll make it beautiful. I hope this really helps the park out attendance wise.

Anyone else find it interesting that the trains only have seven rows? I've never seen that before on a B&M hyper.
