G'day mates,
Saturday 1 February was an awesome day at Seaworld San Antonio! I didn't break any records but I did ride the Steel Eel 15 times. I rode a few other rides too. It was sunny and a very pleasant 27 c. Getting into the park was very fast, about 7 minutes, much less time than at Six Flags.
I'm going back on this Sunday 9 February.
Cheers! :airtimer:

G'day mates,
I went to Sea World yesterday 9 February and it was totally awesome! I rode the Steel Eel 30 times which is my new record. Also twice in front on the Great White. Rode 38 times on various rides including the Steel Eel. I didn't even use a Quick Queue as it was a very small crowd. Going back on Presidents' Day. Total rides in 2 visits this month is 57.
Cheers! =)

G'day mates,
I went to SeaWorld this past Sunday 16 February and it was an awesome day! Got chilled out twice on Journey To Atlantis, as I tried the front row right seat and then the left seat in the last row. Tied my Steel Eel record from the previous Sunday of 30 times in a row. Altogether I rode 42 rides. So far this month I have been on the Steel Eel 75 times in 3 visits. Going back this Saturday 22 February. The park is very well run and entering the park takes less than 5 minutes. I haven't needed to buy a flash pass (quick queue) yet this month as all the rides are available to ride as much as you want. The only rule is that you can ride twice and then you have to get in line again, which just means I get on the very next train.
Cheers! =) :airtimer:

G'day mates,
Went to SeaWorld yesterday 22 February and had another awesome day! Rode the Steel Eel 28 times and rode the Great White 5 times consecutively in the front row! The Great White is just like Batman The Ride at many Six Flags parks. It was probably the largest crowd I have seen in these last 4 visits but still lots of riding time. Haven't needed to get a Quick Queue yet, but I'm sure that will change with Spring Break.
Cheers!

^Pretty sure that happened a while ago, if not a similar incident.

^^The kid should sue the parents after they told her they wouldn't show the video to anybody. And the kid did disregard instructions. People are told not the lift the food tray that high. At least that's what ABC News reported in 2012.

^Yes, Adam the video was originally released in December 2012.

Oops. You're right, apparently that was a similar incident. I edited the post with the new news story.

I wrote the book about donkeys!

If you read the clearly posted directions, there wont be any problems. That picture made her hand look awfully close to the water, and if I remember correctly, its not supposed to be. Sea World has clearly posted rules and regulations for it's dolphin feeding and every time I go and feed the dolphins it is quite the fun, safe, and incredible experience. All the dolphin wanted was the fish. It's a dolphin, they are intelligent animals but they're not going to stop and ask you for the fish. That's why your supposed to use the dangle technique and they come right up to you and you place it in the dolphin's mouth. My family LOVES SeaWorld and we feed the dolphins every time we go. We typically go with some family friends and their kids, aged maybe 2 and 5, fed them the last time we went. Never had a problem.

I also find it a tad interesting how they took a picture at the exact moment she was bitten, but it's easily explainable because every parent there has there cameras ready to snap a quick shot of their kid feeding a dolphin. But my instinct personally would not be to take a picture but to get my child's hands out of that dolphin. Not, "Ooooh hold that shot honey! 1! 2! 3!"

Spring Break Trip Report:

G'day mates,
I visited SeaWorld for the fifth time this year on Monday 10 March and it was another awesome day in the park!
Rode the Great White 17 times including 13 times in the front row. I enjoyed the last row too but the view from the front is more impressive. I also rode the Steel Eel 3 times.
It was the busiest day this season but I did not need the Quick Queue pass yet. In my 5 visits since January so far I've averaged over 30 rides a day without the Quick Queue pass along with at least one animal act or exhibit each day too. My favorites are Alligator Alley, the Shark Aquarium and the Coral Reef.
I'm going to College Spring Break at SeaWorld next week so I may need a Quick Queue pass for that visit.
Cheers! :airtime: :airtimer:
