    Heard on the radio Six Flags interested in all or some of SEAS.

    That is not a good match for any of SEAS park. Major downgrade would happen.

    I think I'm going to make up my own blog and start a rumor to see how far it goes....that's exactly what is happening with that one.

    Bumping, I know, but as long as we're getting one "big boy" coaster at IOA and FW each, I'll be happy. People here hate them for some reason... :shrug:

    I know this had been the general updates thread more or less, but the 5-year plan in question is coming to a close soon.

    I think the other thread that was recently created and locked should be open for any discussion last the 5-years of the said plan. This thread could be for anything and everything happening before then, and the other would be for long term / far out developments.

    I feel like this is a good SeaWorld “catch-all” thread and renaming the thread would be much easier and make more sense imo than starting from scratch unnecessarily.

    I think of this thread more as concrete information or updates from permits / press releases, but there isn’t really a SWO blue sky thread. I see it as the same distinction between the “Universal Orlando Expansion” thread and the “4th Park Blue Sky” thread.

    Either way, it’s your call.

    I mean in the end it’s Brian’s call. I was just giving my opinion on how I see it.

    Since Seaworld is rumored to get a new coaster next year, this means we might get 3 new coasters next year, as we should also have Twisted Gwazi and Uni's JP coaster.

    Add Disney’s additions for 2021 and this is a new golden age for coasted sure.

    Sea World is starting to turn into Orlando's BG. I am so glad we might be getting a launched coaster in 2020.

    Surprised they’ve gone with 3 coasters in a row in San Diego. They’re welcome additions but I hope they give dark rides another shot at some point. Plenty of aquatic source material out there. Equally surprised we haven’t see the addition of a few flat rides in Orlando.

    While I really love the inclusion of all of the coasters and capital spending, I do really hope that SW incorporates some themeing into the attractions. I would say around 2010 was when SeaWorld was doing really cool things in terms of ride design and themeing, ie. Manta (SWO and SWSD), Verbolten, Cheetah Hunt. Great rides with great themes. For me, Mako was just okay in terms of themeing and Infinity Falls was great, but obviously had some budget cuts on the themeing.

    There is just something organic about all of those rides that fit into the park so well, as opposed to just plopping down a coaster Six Flags style.

    2019 coaster? Any thoughts on location? I was there yesterday but just did a few rides and did not look around much. Park was horribly understaffed yesterday. I also wonder if something was wrong with the locker system, since everyone brought their bags onto the rides.

    ^There's a 2020 coaster...not a 2019.

    I'd guess the next coaster will run out over the lake. There aren't many other places to shoehorn a coaster in around the outside of the park.

    What about from behind Dolphin Cove, leading along the front-left side of the park, circling around the lighthouse near the park entrance, before heading back?

    I don't wanna see yet another coaster around the lagoon, and we need more rides near Key West besides just Turtle Trek.

    Either way, they're going to need to start getting creative. I'm always impressed they stuck Manta smack dab in the middle of the park like that.

    There's a lot of backstage infrastructure back there that would have to be relocated and would be hard to build around.

    Or build, over, don't you mean? Hmmmm.

    Yea, I figured that'd be a hard place to squeeze it in. (Giggity)
