Thanks, Larry. I'm a big fan of the park index, and I definitely take that as a compliment. :b (And I'm glad I finally figured out my camera. :P)

It is a beautiful park--the rival of BGE, even. And I think that, in the past, I've made the same mistake that many coaster enthusiasts do by treating it as just a place to pick up a credit or two. But there really is quite a bit more to do there.

Awesome pics & TR. I wish I can spend more than two hours at Sea World when I'm there for my Senior Trip in June but I'm just doing a credit run on Manta & the kiddie & maybe one or two rides on Kraken & JTA if I have time. It has been four years since I've been to Sea World & I forgot how great their theming was.

That is some great pictures.

I can't wait until the end of June when I get to visit Orlando for the first time.

My first ever attempt at posting a video on TPR. Keep your fingers crossed.

Nice pictures! I'd like to go to Sea World again. I've only been once-in 1995!

Very nice TR & pics. Had fun looking through them.

The Sepia JtA picture was absolutely beautiful. I would reccommend sending that for the challenge, if possible. :b

Erik, most awesome SWO Photo TR. (Two acronyms in one sentence! Woo hoo! lol) I haven't been there since May 2005. I am definitely psyched about using my D40X at this park, more than any park I will be visiting in July. The colors and theming are amazing! I would definitely say you figured your camera out with the quickness. Your photos are amazing! Me, I have had mine since Dec 2007, and I still stuck on mostly auto features. I am fighting the manual features, but have been trying to take advantage of the shutter priorities for the dark pics. I am slowly learning. Maybe one day I can graduate into the other features. :)

I may beg to differ about your Shamu Kraken pic though. I almost feel that I spy the train going up the lift behind the trees.... I can't blow it up with enough clarity on my pc, maybe you can check it out?

edit: I am definitely down for the Kraken challenge, if you want to wait until July that is! (Hopefully I remember!) Any rules?

^ No rules beyond what I already laid out. You just have to get a Kraken train and something else cool that moves. You know, like a shark eating a penguin or something.

In any case, it was just a silly thing for fun. So, remember, there are no prizes. :P

I look forward to your TR in July.

Oh, and I don't think there's a train here, but appreciate you working for me. ;)

Hey it was worth a shot! ;)

Of course for fun! I love taking pics, and I will take a zillion anyhow, so I may as well try and make it interesting while there!
