^Avalanche doesn't count.
Well if this has some good airtime this will have the potential to be a very good coaster. Interested to see what this launch tunnel turns out to be with its projection.

Looks like a fantastic attraction! Am I the only one who thinks that SeaWorld and Busch Gardens parks are really starting to figure things out attractions wise? The past several additions to every one of their parks have been great, Manta, Jungala, Sheikra, both Sesame Street areas, Griffin, new trains for Gwazi, and now Cheetaka Race, Santa, and whatever they're building in BGE next year. I've been more impressed by everything SeaWorld Entertainment has done over the past 5 years than anything Disney (or Universal really) has done in the same time frame. Now if they could only do something about those sometimes horrid operations.......

When I grow up, I want to breed donkeys!

In response to what someone said earlier about this ride so far having no negative responses, I think this is the one park we can all agree on that just needs something....anything, in fact, especially with how much Disney is pouring into California Adventure and Universal into Transformers. And not to mention the new (and updated) rides going into SFMM and Knott's this year.

I'm happy for the park. This ride will definitely warrant a visit from me in 2012 :)

The ride looks great, although I'm a bit disappointed with the unoriginal name choice.

^Just be happy it wasn't called Stingray Hunt.

Anyway, this looks like a great addition to the park! :b

I think it sounds pretty impressive, should be a very enveloping environment if done right. The launch tunnel sounds pretty cool and unique.

I have been waiting for this day for many many years. =) Sea World San Diego finally gets a real coaster, and it looks pretty damn good. I'm gonna have to head down there next year and try it out.
Just because yours is smaller doesn't make you less of a man. Unless we're talking about your brain.

With 20 people per train, 4 seems like a lot, awesome! I'm so excited.
