I love it. If the POV is accurate it could be a fairly compact ride with some nice air. I like the shuttling aspect too, looks like a fun solid ride.
I've not been here in ages. Kraken was the only coaster. It was quite good though. With the good reviews I hear about Manta and Mako, now this...SeaWorld may have one solid lineup. Would say it may take best in FL BUT there is a huge RMC opening not so far away. But yeah good year for FL parks.
Top 10 Steel: Steel Vengeance, Wicked Cyclone, Fury 325, Millennium Force, Storm Chaser, Skyrush, Maverick, Goliath (SFoG), I305, Lightning Run
Top 10 Wood: Voyage, Phoenix, El Toro, Boulder Dash, Mystic Timbers, Lightning Racer, Grizzly (KD), Legend, Raven, Beast

Counts I305 as 32 credits...

I really enjoy Mako, but even before Iron Gwazi, I still think that Busch Gardens Tampa Bay has the best coaster lineup in Florida.

Saying you're going to call the founder of a company over a ride might be one of the most ridiculous things I've ever seen. You'd think an enthusiast club would also know what brakes are.

Oh man...that is very cringe. Like Walter or Claude would even know what to do or have permission to touch the ride!?!?!?

This kind of behavior is why I don't associate with hardcore coaster clubs... Line-level ride ops don't need to be berated for technical difficulties, especially by coaster fanatics who if they had any knowledge about theme parks should understand that these are pieces of machinery that don't turn on a dime.

One more reason (of the many, many, many) that TPR has been the home for the casual fans, many of whom work in the industry and simply *get it*, for so many years.
