    I don't know what exactly would qualify as an ADA violation. But "ability to walk unassisted" only applies to "small children". What it says exactly is:

    "Guests must be at least 42” or accompanied by a supervising companion (14 years or older). Small children must demonstrate the ability to walk unassisted."

    Most of their rides are like that though. Think the whole Mako Sharks Wreck Reef area in SWO.

    I just watched the POV for this ride and..............started to wonder if this was some kind of joke.

    I'm not going to accept any excuses that this was just a kids ride or designed to be kid friendly...it seems the entire budget went into the ride system and vehicles and nothing else.

    There's a TON of inexpensive things they could have done to make this ride decent.

    Just having their workers in those Katie Perry shark costumes flailing their arms at all the bends would have been super cheap considering they're now in the costume discount bin.

    I think Antarctica is kind of underrated.

    After months, Electric Eel has been officially approved to be made by the California Coastal Comission's vote of approval today.



    The rollercoaster, as said will open by 2018 as the attraction will be a Premier Skyrocket ride system, using what seems to be the coaster layout from attractions like Superman: Ultimate Flight at Discovery Kingdom, Tempesto from Busch Gardens Williamsburg, and more.

    As of now, the official opening date is now May 12th, and it seems they are still quite a ways to go before softs.

    Submarine Quest has been closed quite awhile and looks like it may end up being permanent. Still states closed indefinitely, and has been removed from SW San Diego's Website.

    Damn. I know the ride sucks, but wasn't it just built a couple years ago?

    Huh, perhaps we got a Rocket Rods situation for SW?

    Just enclose it, put in some scenes, and make a dark ride...like it should’ve been in the first place.

    Can anybody post the contents of the article because it isn't letting me view it as I am in Europe?

    I'm not sure that's allowed. But I can summarize the article: the ride rarely operates, and hasn't operated this year at all. It's been removed from the SeaWorld website. SeaWorld says the ride is "currently undergoing maintenance", but no one has seen any evidence of work being done on the ride.
