Also, can re-confirm some shakiness coming from Kraken with a one-third filled train. Noticeable but not bad enough to affect enjoyment of the ride, in my opinion.


Whoa that's really impressive for a flyer!

Yeah, they were doing great. I was down near the pretzel loop taking a photo of the first train going through and I turned around to walk toward the entrance and only a few seconds afterward I heard the dispatch sound effect and the music start playing. I forgot to mention that they were running both stations, which eliminated stacking too. Being stacked on a flying coaster is the worst.

Today I had the chance to experience a new, short-term festival offering at SeaWorld Orlando, the Craft Beer Festival. Only offered this past weekend and next weekend, the event is like a mini version of the Seven Seas Food Festival with over twenty food items and over 100 beers on tap spread throughout the park. Like other events at SeaWorld, event sampler lanyards allow you to choose options from across the festival at a reduced price by paying for up to twelve items up front.

It also turned out that this weekend was another event at SeaWorld Orlando, Jack Hanna Weekend. Jack Hanna has had a longstanding relationship with the SeaWorld parks and has been coming to SeaWorld since I was a kid, bringing with him a variety of animals that you don't even get the chance to see in the parks.

With that, my day made for two experiences in one...

This is much more than I was expecting! It looks like they decided to make a whole festival out of revamped bar foods. I need those Chorizo Potato Skins!

So I just heard that six flags has just entered talks to possibly purchase SeaWorld parks and entertainment.

Not sure what to think about this.

They do have experience dealing with sealife, and run a park(Six flags Discovery kingdom). In addition, they also used to run worlds of adventure.

On the other side of the coin, I wouldn't want them to change the name/brand of Busch gardens and SeaWorld.
