Wow, I don't know why I didn't expect that sign to go there. A similar sign is in Florida, haha. I like this sign a lot better though!
Next time, wear blindfolds...okay?

SeaWorld posted a new video. Most shots are out-of-date now, but they have some new footage of testing and some great views of what the 270 degree screen is like. Pretty cool.

This family coaster just got even better. I really like the way it is turning out and wish it wasn't on the opposite side of the country.

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Cool video. That 270 degree screen should be pretty neat.

More than ever, I'm looking forward to riding it in August.

Accident Article Link

Authorities say a mechanic has been injured while fixing a ride at SeaWorld San Diego.

The park tells U-T San Diego (http://bit.ly/KulqOs) that the man was working on the flight simulator for the Wild Arctic ride Tuesday morning when he was hurt. A fire department spokesman says the 20-year-old man was hospitalized with non-life threatening injuries.

KFMB-TV ( http://bit.ly/Juhrn5) says a leaking hydraulic plug dislodged and struck the man in the cheek and lip.


Sounds a bit odd... based on another new report I heard the man was investigating some kind of problem when the hydraulic plug blew off...if they were investigating something like that...shouldn't they have put the ride in a full on shutdown.

Even with the Hydraulic pumps off there's still could be pressure in the hydraulic lines.

That's true...still...most safety precautions and procedures are made to prevent circumstances like this...I wonder what caused the plug to burst...

^Well the article clearly says the plug was "leaking" so it was faulty. To be fair, no one except the park mechanics know the layout of the Hydraulic system on this simulator so it's a possibility the plug came off from above the mechanic. I'm just throwing that out there. Glad he wasn't seriously injured as hydraulic systems can be extremely dangerous.
