I agree 100%. It never made sense to me why a park like SeaWorld, which is really geared towards children and families ended up with three coasters that are 54" which Busch Gardens got rides like Cheetah Hunt and Cobra's Curse which have more "SeaWorld Demographic-Friendly" height restrictions.

IMHO, the only thing missing from SeaWorld's coaster lineup is a Wave Breaker-style launched coaster

Wait... what? That doesn't even make any sense. So you're saying that if they had a "Wave Breaker-style" coaster, they'd be done. They don't need any more roller coasters?

I was trying to say that a Wave Breaker-style launched coaster should be their next coaster as SeaWorld doesn't have a launched coaster (one of very few major parks without a launched coaster)
Top 10 steel: Steel Vengeance, Millennium Force, Maverick, Mako, Incredible Hulk, Banshee, Diamondback, Raptor, SheiKra, Montu
Top 10 wood: Mystic Timbers, Shivering Timbers, Beast, Racer (KI), Viper, American Eagle, Woodstock Express, Blue Streak (CP), Mean Streak (RIP), Wolverine Wildcat

Oh. That makes more sense.

A donkey is a domesticated member of the Equidae or horse family.

Well that's good news. I have plans to go to Sea World on the 12th. With the heat we have been having here, I'm looking forward to it.

Watching the POV’s, I think my favourite parts of the ride are where the rafts pick up some speed and hit a wall of water head on.

MUST BUY RMC MERCHANDISE!!!!

Looks like something potentially more violent than Pluto’s

At SeaWorld right now and Infinity Falls is drawing a 45 minute - 1 hour wait during soft opening (it’s not on the park map yet) due to insane heat. Looks like a very good ride, but I won’t ride because it looks like you get soaked. Antarctica is also drawing a 45 minute wait due to it being air conditioned

What I find funny about the Antarctica ride is despite the mediocre reviews it got it still has the longest wait times compared to the other attractions in the park.

Because it’s low capacity and barely open?
