I kind of forgot about this coaster being built and was more focused on Abyss at Adventure World Perth's construction, but I'm really happy that this is finally open and looks much better than I expected! I find Mack watercoasters to be a bit average as rides, but SeaWorld did an awesome effort theming Storm. It's probably one of the most well themed rides in the country.

I love donkeys more than me.

Looks like Mack did a great job on the ride. I love how it is a coaster/dark ride combo.

Wow! A roller coaster, dark ride, and water ride all in one.

I forgot this was even being built, but it looks pretty awesome.

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


There were some fire effects in the CGI POV, and I've seen some marketing copy which mentions fire, but they don't appear to have been turned on yet.

Wow, the theming is incredible! Love the hill over the water and into the crashed boat. Everything just looks great. Can't wait to ride in a few weeks!

Why do I still have a donkey title???

That is a very nice touch. Glad you caught that right away so later people won't look at that section of track and complain that the park isn't taking good care of it. :p

^The cynic in me does wonder if parks theme rides to disasters because it means they can get away with less maintenance on the themeing - i.e. Apocalypse at either SFA or SFMM.

The ride looks fun. Not sure if I will ever make it to Australia to ride but who knows. Thanks for sharing the photos and video.

Looking forward to seeing it with fire. :P

Very well done, and a great move by Sea World Australia to build Storm and theme it so well. I'm impressed.
