They're doing what they need to do to survive. This includes the budget cutting, layoffs and bending over backwards for PETA. It's unfortunate but it's the reality of the situation.

The audience was also primarily consistent of coaster enthusiasts so it would make sense that they said they would excited. What interests me the most is the "aquarium building." It's good to see that SeaWorld is still somewhat focused on animals in light of the news we've received this year.


Can you link to that video?

^ Thank you, it seems they definitely have a substantial roller coaster planned! I'd kill to work on that development team! They keep talking about how strong of a relationship they have with B&M. ;) Although SeaWorld/Busch have used B&M, Intamin, Premier, Mack, Zierer, and GCI in the past 5 years, so it's anybody's guess at this point.

I definitely think SWSD is due for an attraction geared towards teens/thrill seekers. I'd be happy with any large coaster this chain has built in recent times. (just please not a Tempesto-clone - Please god anything but that!)


Also, I emailed the Community Planning Group listed on the notice and got a response from Darlene Walter (SWSD's VP of Engineering):
The community forums will be held on:

In addition to a presentation at the Mission Bay Park Committee on January 3, at 6:00PM at the Santa Clara Recreation Center, there will also be community forums on Saturday, Jan. 7, 2017 at 9 a.m. or Monday, Jan. 9, 2017 at 6:00 p.m. at the SeaWorld Adventure Camp.

I hope you can attend at that time to hear the details on the attraction.


I'll definitely go to the community presentation in two weeks to hopefully report some new info! I'll try not to get my hopes up for a B&M in my backyard in the meantime... :lmao:

Sea World is in no way bending over backwards for peta, that would involve releasing all the animals into the wild and going out of business as they are against all zoo's and any kind of animal captivity whatsoever (including pets). Peta isn't really Sea Worlds problem as most people don't take that organization seriously, it was that movie that turned public opinion against whale captivity.

Its stupid to boycott Sea World for ending orca breeding and phasing out the shows because it's now illegal (at least in California). Sea World is struggling financially as it is, it's best that they move on and try to do something else because they would go bankrupt trying to fight the government for years and years. If anything you should be going there and spending money to support animal rescue/rehabilitation, educating, and protecting endangered species, instead of crossing your arms and huffing expecting them to do something that is illegal.

I really hope this project goes forward.

I'm optimistic, but cautiously optimistic because the San Diego city government can be notoriously difficult to work with when it comes to any kind of new construction. We saw this when they wanted to add Journey To Atlantis to the park when some city council members (along with the California Coastal Commission) try their very best to stop the ride from being built. I've never felt that the San Diego government appreciates how important SeaWorld is to the local tourism economy.

I emailed the city project manager for more information and received this in response.

The specs line up perfectly with a Premier Sky Rocket II (Tempesto) - "150 feet", "compact roller coaster", "inversions". Tempesto's ride footprint IS smaller than "two acres" in layout (0.3 acres, according to Premier's website), but with all the other buildings, aquarium, etc, It could make sense.

Being a selfish enthusiast who doesn't love Sky Rocket II's, I kinda hope I'm wrong about this. But even so, a 150ft, 65mph, inverting coaster for a park like SeaWorld San Diego is only a great thing!

I'll be sure to get any more info at the public hearing on Jan 3rd.

No what's ridiculous is you thinking I care at all about what you think is ridiculous like seriously go Tamar Fellner yourself and if you don't know who she is ask Holiday World

Also 320 people over 11 parks isn't that many... umm go ask those 320 people who have lost jobs right before the holidays how they feel about your opinion and I don't think the response will be very nice :roll:

A Premier Sky rocket II :cry: well the slight dream I had of something awesome coming to the park has crashed and burned smdh

What about one of those inverting Chance Hyper GTX models? They are relatively compact and they have a nice mock layout on their youtube channel. But that's wishful thinking. I guess we may have to settle with a Sky Rocket II, which is by no means a bad ride.
