So, I know that SeaWorld Entertainment has delayed all coasters from their SeaWorld and Busch Gardens parks til' next year, but is it that hard to upload POV's of Iron Gwazi, Pantheon, Icebreaker, Emperor, etc.? Sheesh, Hersheypark gave us theirs, Kings Island gave us theirs. So?

Last I heard was that SEAS was not allowed to operate any of their new coasters for failure to pay for them, so that might put a damper on filming POVs. Also, it's SEAS. You expect too much.

It doesn't make much sense to start promoting rides that people can't ride for the foreseeable future, and that's assuming they're even able to film from them.

So, it's kind of impossible to shoot a POV on a ride that has not even opened.

So if they don't release the POV as soon as they can possibly film it, then what?

 

 

Then, nothing.. but it would be fun and give us something to see while we’re stuck inside

Schmitty, you seem like the type of enthusiast who would watch the aforementioned POVs, and then two minutes later start a thread titled “So what’s new for 2021?!”

Oh man, I missed this thread while at Disney last week. Nice to come home to something that reminds me how much I hate our hobby!

Yes, they should release POVs to please needy enthusiasts instead of releasing them closer to the ride's opening day to attract guests.

 

Some coasters (New Texas Giant) we didn't even get a POV until years AFTER it opened. While that was silly, so would be releasing POVs months before a ride is open. You want the hype to be closer to when people can actually give you their dollars to experience it.

Parks don't release POV's for enthusiasts to binge watch. They're released for marketing reasons. Almost everything parks do is meant to draw people into the parks. Even charity donations are promotions to a degree. Aside from smaller write-off donations, has a park ever been caught silently making large donations for charitable causes? It's all fun and games, but in the end every single park operates to make a profit. They're businesses.

 

The extra media will be released when it will benefit marketing the most. So, before you defend your stance using anecdotal evidence saying it's better to release them now, for whatever reason, you don't have the data. If it would financially help parks to release POV media now, they would do it.

 

The creation of this thread is a perfect example of the annoying entitled enthusiast mentality.

 

"sheesh"
