Very impressed with how it looks, especially the final splash down! Kind of eerie.

Looks like another very well-themed ride for Australia! Amazing job by Sea World, and a great fit for the park.

What I found most amazing about this ride, is how they painted the track to match the surroundings, trying to camouflage it more. Dirty and rusty coming out of the "Rusty" tunnel, then into a pure white to match the cascading water.
Signature.

Very clever use of the Mack Rides crate.

I always love when parks put that much effort into themeing. It can make an average ride incredible which they have done here very well!

Wow, I had not even heard this was under construction. Looks awesome.
So the big final splash is in the warehouse? Thats killer!
Also, the aged effect on the track is pretty cool too. Looks like a home run for sure.

Excellent looking coaster!

Will there actually be any fire effects added or is this the final look?

Crazy good themeing for this ride, I like that they didn't choose to theme it around a sea creature or an ocean based myth. It was a good idea to create a story that centers on the work that the coast guard does in rescuing crews from ships caught in a storm.

It would be nice if Sea World San Diego had a similar attraction that would recognize the Navy or Marines, both of which have large bases in in San Diego.

The ride looks very well done. Love the theming to it. Not a big fan of getting drenched on a ride though.

Wow, I never even realized this was being build - nonetheless that it was awesome! I always wish the roller coaster portions of these Mack watercoasters were a little nicer-looking, but that airtime hill and the splashdown inside the warehouse are really cool!
