So did we confirm that there is no roof on this station? I'm kind of surprised that California amusement regulation is so anal about everything but gives this a pass. Not that it is any less safe or anything, but just that it seems like something they wouldn't let fly.

I take it you've never been to CGA... :lmao: SWSD confirmed they will have shade structures, but no roof. Similar to Journey to Atlantis and Tidal Twister

You are right :lmao: Do people actually like it like that? I just feel like if you are going to spend millions on a roller coaster you should spend a tiny fraction of that to put a roof over the queue, but i guess that how all flat rides are now that i think about it so ok.

I don't know where this whole "CA amusement regulation is so anal about everything" comes from...

California just makes sure parks and traveling rides are following the industry ASTM standards and holding parks accountable to make sure they follow those and all required maintenance as mandated by the manufacturer.

Unfortunately those standards only apply to the ride. Parks just have to follow building codes when it comes to station buildings.

Here are some daytime shots of Emperor. I believe I missed it testing by just a day or two.

SeaWorld San Diego figured out a way to open! Good for them! No coasters (for now), similar to the Knott's event.

If it's anything like their "Taste of Seven Seas" festival it'll be a hit.

In case anyone didn't hear, SWSD passes will be extended one year from their original expiration date. This is honestly a huge relief for me after spending an entire summer in San Diego and not being able to go to the park once with my season pass. I'm not sure if other Seaworld parks are doing this or not. Here's what the email said:

We are pleased to announce that your Annual Pass expiration date will automatically be extended for one year from your original expiration date. No action is needed on your part to activate this extension. For example, if your Annual Pass expired on August 31, 2020, you can now visit as many times as you’d like now through August 31, 2021.
