What are you referencing?


Probably the terrible reviews from the ride at SFDK!

"Shaky"

"Slow"

"No interaction with the other side"

"Rough"

"Uninteresting"

And the fact that Harley Quinn still hasn't "opened." The commercial shoot and media day was cancelled again last I heard. (Although I know it soft-opened for a few days)

Doesn't SeaWorld have some type of noise restriction(s)? If so, I wonder if this version will be filled with sand somehow, because the one at SFDK is LOUD.

Looks like we have the world's second Skywarp coming to SWSD!

Get Ready to Ride the Tide!
Coming in May 2019- Feel the thrill of this unique dueling roller coaster ride featuring high-speed turns and upside-down twists.

Introducing Tidal Twister, an all-new dueling roller coaster, which will make its debut as a new attraction at SeaWorld San Diego in 2019. The first of its kind in the world, this unique ride is an exhilarating experience that demonstrates the power of the ocean.

Accelerating to 30 mph, riders will twist and bank as if they are riding the tide along a tight figure-8 track that includes dynamic Zero-G roll at the center section.

Two trains, holding 16 passengers each, load at opposite ends of the figure-8 and cross in the center with guests facing both forward and backward on the trains. A lower-height requirement (48") makes this a perfect ride for younger guests and families.

Does it state anywhere as to where the ride will be placed in the park?

^ Thanks, looks like it will be a good addition to the park, just hope that they can get it working better than the one up north at Discovery Kingdom.

So isn't this the second time in a row they've copied a ride that's already at Discovery Kingdom? Who knew Six Flags would become the innovator in the market that Sea World basically created....

Looks fun though, looking forward to trying this out.
