^That sums up the experience of boarding those perfectly.

I'm so glad Six Flags disallowed the Platinum Pass double rides since it's so awkward to just stay on the train like that. I did it once on Kingda Ka and felt way too guilty to do it again.

I'd love for SeaWorld to remove that benefit as well, especially since most don't know about it. If anything, I'd prefer them to replace it with a one time Quick Queue in the mold of the perk Six Flags gives members.

Agreed, I did it a few times when I got Platinum Flash Passes but I always felt super awkward about it. I'm glad that SF doesn't offer that as part of the Platinum Flash Pass anymore.

Definitely looks like a Dive coaster to me. I want it to have penguin shaped cars though.

I doubt we'll get a full fledged dive coaster in Orlando... I'd imagine that SeaWorld will try to go for something more unique to Central Florida, but also compact for the area of the park where this is rumored to go. My money is on some kind of shuttle coaster with switch tracks to all for full circuit operations...

Honestly, I'm more interested to see what they do with the surrounding area (Wild Arctic and Mango Joe's) and if they integrate those into this new coaster's theme in some way.

People are say that Premier hasn't done a sliding track switch well that is not totally true cause they have the tech cause the mr. Freeze blast coasters have sliding switchs move the trains from one side to the launch section. Also I think one of the skyrocket 2 have a sliding station.

Premier has done several sliding stations over the years (Mr. Freeze is a good example, as you mentioned)... Most recently, Zombie Ride at Bosque Magico opened with a sliding station.

Even if a manufacturer hasn't fabricated an element before, it doesn't mean that they couldn't. Often during the Request for Proposal phase in a park's search for a new coaster, if the park knows what they intend to offer and is seeking manufacturers to build it, the manufacturer's ability to deliver upon desired design is what wins the contract. Regardless of who ends up creating this new coaster for SeaWorld, you can bet that if SeaWorld decided they wanted a sliding station, that they wouldn't sign with a manufacturer that couldn't deliver one.

Last night TPR was invited to attend a kick-off event for this year's Electric Ocean at SeaWorld Orlando! Electric Ocean is the park's Summer event featuring special food and decor along with several evening versions of the animal shows they offer throughout the day. These special entertainment offerings are not just the normal daytime shows with nighttime lighting, but totally different experiences with unique stories, music and animal behaviors (plus a bit of what you love from each of the normal shows).

The event is incredibly well organized in that the shows are presented in a logical order and timed in a way that allows you to have ample time to grab a seat at each theater, catch the show and move (with time to spare) between venues to catch the next show. By the end of the evening you will have been able to experience up to four special shows, plus enjoyed the park's many attractions, special food booths and a glowing atmosphere that transforms sections of the park in a unique way.

There's a great repeatability to Electric Ocean thanks to the added variety of entertainment, culinary options and club atmosphere. New this year to the event is Club R&R, a lounge environment set up in the Nautilus Theater. The venue has a more chill feel compared to Club Sea Glow, offering a more relaxed place to grab a drink set to a fun beat.

Electric Ocean runs on select nights from May 24th through September 1st, so be sure to check out the park this Summer to experience all that the event has to offer!

Thanks to SeaWorld Orlando for hosting us for another wonderful kickoff to a new season of Electric Ocean! This is one of the best ways to experience SeaWorld Orlando and a great reason to return if you're looking to experience different entertainment than you normally find in the park throughout the year! The event runs on select nights from May 24th through September 1st, so there's plenty of time to come out to the park to enjoy it all for yourself!

I want to try these SO bad.

and I despise coleslaw, but I'll bet it's fantastic when eaten in this form, so you get just a taste of it when digging in.


the mac & cheese bites look like wonderful deep fried goodness as well (and so do the mini-donuts, tho I'm not typically a super sweet fan).

great coverage of what looks like an event that's a nice addition to evening options in Orlando.

It is definitely a great addition to the evening landscape in Central Florida... And the best part is, it is included in park admission for the day, so you can enjoy the park's normal offerings throughout the day and then cap it off with Electric Ocean!
