Agreed. But it definitely seems like the approach has worked for the SeaWorld parks over the last few years... I'm hoping that between Emperor, Ice Breaker, Iron Gwazi, Texas Stingray, the smaller projects across the parks and the investments already announced for 2021 (Wild Arctic San Diego replacement and Sesame Place San Diego) that these parks will continue to see positive results.

I'm still pretty bitter about John Reilly being passed over for the CEO post. Under his direction, the investment model for the parks really seemed to be amplified between rides, shows and events. I'm still incredibly concerned that this board under Scott Ross is going to drive these parks back into the ground.

I'm really excited to have one of these smaller Dive coasters opening in the US. Personally my favorite B&Ms always tend to be the smaller, compact rides.

I am stoked for this coaster. Since 2019 was a HUGE travel year for me, I am taking it easy in 2020 and staying near home, so I am glad I still have a new coaster to look forward to riding!

I hope the compact nature of this thing makes for a snappy (for a dive coaster) ride sort of like that pre-midcourse series on Yukon Striker.
