My thoughts exactly! Never seen a coaster with most unrealistic supports out there!

Steel Eel looks impressive. I just can't stand the looks of the trains. It looks like you can barely see out of them?
Thanks! The Orlando Sea World is a much better park, and the Manta scenery is simply stunning. San Antonio is pretty average and very light compared to Orlando. And, you can see over the trains, but I just think it doesn't appear well in pictures.

Thanks! Yeah, I bet the park has changed a lot since then.. (Especially with the additions of Great White and Steel Eel!)
BTW: How does Great White compare to the other Batman clones?
- Can't wait to see your next update
It was definitely.... extreme! Rumors say that it has shorter track length, so the the loops and turns would be a lot tighter. You could definitely feel it because my blood rushed to my legs during all the turns and corkscrews and I was graying out left and right, it was just crazy! Fun ride, but a little too forceful.

Yeah, many log flumes seem to be getting the chopping block! We went right when Texas Splash Down opened and there was definitely a line forming. Although, you could tell the ride was not aging well because the edges of the flume were folding out and there were leaks in many spots (Maybe there are suppose to be, but didn't look pretty.)
