Visited the park today and got a little glimpse of how Electric Eel is coming along. They picked the perfect location for this coaster!! It’s definitely going to tower over the footpath. Also love the color scheme as well. Enjoy!

Thanks for the update! With all of my attention on HangTime, I almost forgot SoCal is getting two new coasters next year. Can't wait to try this one out.

With 2 coasters I need credits on, 2018 may be the year I go back for a visit.

I can finally see Electric Eel from my house! Although I'm not completely enthused by the choice of coaster, I can't help but be excited watching a roller coaster grow in my backyard!

They are a lot of fun for being in a compact area. A good fit for SeaWorld.

Still feels weird to see a second launch coaster coming to this park, but from what I've heard Sky Rocket II's are awesome, so this should be awesome. Can't wait to see it up and running.

I feel the same way. Initially I felt it was a little redundant to have two multi-launch coasters in the park, but I’m just excited that a major thrill coaster is finally coming to SWSD after seeing its Orlando and San Antonio siblings crush them in the coaster department. I’m loving the colors too.

Knott’s also has 7 other coasters. My point was that the only two “real” coasters at SWSD are both multi-launch coasters.

Stuff like this doesn’t matter because the park does what makes them money anyway, this is just speaking from a nerdy enthusiast point of view.
