Heading to the park on Saturday. Have not purchased tickets yet. Clicking around, trying to figure out the best deal.
There is the chance that I make it out there again in the next 12 months, so I've pondered whether or not to do the 12mo monthly membership. That said, if I can find a decent one day deal (not incl waterpark, don't think there will be time) I'm good with having to relook at this later in the year (ie: not getting the pass now and just buying tickets for one day at the park).
Again, any help is appreciated..............and, if you're being so generous with info, would love a "best plan of attack" for the park.
If you are going a second time prior to Sept 7 I'd get the fun card, otherwise if you are for sure going again, consider that with two trips worth of parking and admission, you would end up saving you money if you were to purchase the yearly pass. On easy pay it wouldn't be a huge sting out of the monthly budget.
As far as plan of attack, I would focus on the shows, the shark and dolphin area is closed off as they build Discovery Point. The newly refurbished Pacific Point Preserve and accompanying show will likely be a hot ticket item as is of course Shamu. I would plan to arrive about 10-15 minutes before showtime to get a decent seat as on the weekends the early shows at Azul Stadium, Shamu Stadium, and PPP will fill up, (people do tend to bail after 2pm). The big rides open 1 hour after the park opens. Most will rush to the rides when they open, ride a few times, and bounce so don't worry about long waits on Steel Eel or Great White. Your longest lines will be for Journey to Atlantis and the river rapids. The line for the rapids is generally steady, but if you want JTA you might want to hit it close to opening time to avoid waiting for 30-60 minutes.
Other than that, the Smokehouse and Harbor Market both offer great food.

Next year they're opening up the new Dolphin Habitat, however I think that in 2017 the area behind to the shark encounter would make a great area for a Mack launch coaster similar to Manta. They could call it Mako. I don't really see them adding in a huge thrill coaster since the lines for the current two, I've heard don't reach very long waits, plus this could be a good family/thrill coaster if done right. The only thing about calling the coaster Mako would be that they'd probably want to retheme Great White(which frankly it could use since it's pretty lame atm). Just my idea.
