ditto. . and in the shark aquarium/display, don't miss the room off to the right where you can climb behind the jaws display to get this pic:
It is interesting to me that Busch Gardens Tampa's attendance has stayed pretty much flat for the last 10 or so years. 2006: 4.36 million, 2016: 4.17 million, and every year in between was give or take that +/- a 100K or so. Doesn't seem to matter what they do their attendance never really changes.
(sorry wrong thread, didn't realize until after I posted.)

And I only kinda stumbled upon the amazingness that is the front of Mako thanks to the fact that the ride was a ghost town when I was there. I am normally a back seat rider, especially B&M hypers, but there was no line for the front so I said "might as well try it" and was completely blown away. I don't know what it is about Mako, but its absolutely better in the front.
I have to agree that Mako is very much superior in the first rows. I find this to be the same of most newer speed coasters from B&M with the "sharp" parabolic airtime hills. I was very impressed with my first rides on Manta as well. Journey to Atlantis was closed, I am hoping they get some of the dark ride scenes repaired or replaced, so much potential and some very thrilling moments on that one.
Does SeaWorld usually pull a Hershey and block off the back rows on less busy days?
They're only assigning rows 1-5 and won't let anyone ride in the back, even if it means having a two train wait on a different row. Manta is still awesome up front, but it's a bummer I can't get another back row ride this visit.
