Sounds like a replacement for the coaster they're supposed to get in 2010...but a new show is also good.

Oh goodness, Blue Horizons is a horrible show. Ok, it's not horrible, but I would prefer it NOT coming to San Diego, while yes Dolphin Discovery is a very old show, I don't think Sea World is doing the world a favor in replacing any and all educational material with extra feathers on the divers suits.

I've never felt the desire to go to Sea World until I heard they were building a new coaster for 2010. Now my desire has been replaced with dread.

That's a good point. I wasn't a fan of Believe either for the same reason. I enjoyed the older versions of the shows with more educational stuff instead of horrible storylines and less tricks from the animals.

I agree as well with you guys. I would much rather have a show that is interactive and informative than one what has people in funny looking costumes dancing around to and fro. Just no my cup of tea. :butt:

NEWS: SeaWorld San Diego announces new Sea Turtle attraction

Postby jedimaster1227 » Mon Nov 08, 2010 6:44 pm

http://www.insideseaworld.com/seaworld-san-diego-announces-its-2011-new-attraction

It's all about sea turtles in 2011 for SeaWorld San Diego! The park's new attraction will highlight up to 60 threatened or endangered green and hawksbill sea turtles.

Scheduled to open next summer, the attraction will also feature thousands of tropical fish that can be seen through the aquarium’s large underwater viewing window. This attraction will be the largest display of sea turtles in the United States. Turtles in the attraction’s nearly 300,000 gallon aquarium will include adults, some more than 50 years old, as well as ones that hatched at the park in October 2009.

“We are thrilled to feature these amazing creatures, some of which are endangered species,” said Thad Dirksen, the park’s curator of fishes. “And our hatchlings are a testament to our stellar husbandry practices and ability to design habitats that allow animals to thrive.” Educational interactive elements like a gaming wall and touch screen maps will also be part of the attraction. Capping off the experience will be a thrilling “riptide rescue” flat ride outside the aquarium that will even be fun for “tween” guests.

Awesome! I was just there yesterday and saw the year old Sea Turtle on display in Aquarium De La Mer.

I wonder what will take the place in the enclosures near Shipwreck Rapids.

Awesome. I love turtles!

However, I find it funny how every Seaworld park has an awesome B&M (one has 2) and San Diego still has yet to get a single one. Talk about giving it the cold shoulder, guess it'll have to wait another year!

^Sea World San Diego has very strict zoning and a terrible city council to deal with. They've tried before to get big rides and they always either get cancelled or neutered.

What would donkeys be like on the moon?

Looks nice for Sea World San Diego. Glad to see it finally getting something new. Does anyone know what exactly "Riptide Rescue" is? It seems like it will round out the smaller ride collection well enough for the time being.
