I have gotten drenched sitting in all different seats on both JTA's. Everyone knows you get drenched if you sit in the front of Orlando's...

Sea World knew what they were doing. Kelly and I rode front seat of JTA at SWO, and our shoes were so water-logged after we got off, we stopped by their strategically placed gift shop and dished out about $30 for two pairs of flip-flops. Coincidence? I think not! ;)

I was in the park for orientation on my job today. We got to walk around the site (sorry no pics) and there are not even slots on the track for trims. As far as theming, I actuall think that it will have a nicely themed station as there is a lot of non coaster related verticle construction going on around the area.

There are no trims on AS. I just looked on RCDB and I didn't see any. So, unless they literally just added them, you may be thinking about a different ride...

I saw, went and conquered Steel Dragon 2000. It's still crap!

^From the RCDB page:

"The Atlantica SuperSplash has magnetic trim brakes on the first drop which allows some control over the top speed and hence the amount of splash. So the ride can be adjusted depending on the season or weather."

Soo they are there ;)

Dont know if you all wanted this topic brought back up. However, now there is a video of the ride showing it off on Sea World's website. I have to say I actually think that it looks pretty descent. As I have training tomorrow, I can stop and take some pictures on the way there.

Here is the link to Sea World's website. The video is on the main page.

It's exactly like Atlantica Supersplash at Europa Park. They didn't even try to change the colors!

I liked the one at EP!

Postby larrygator » Thu Sep 23, 2010 9:57 am

Yesterday on their, blog Sea World San Antonio/Texas announced a new kid's area themed around Sesame Street. This will replace Shamu's Happy Harbor

Sea World San Antonio to Open Sesame Street Bay of Play Attraction in 2011

SAN ANTONIO (Sept. 22, 2010) – In spring 2011, SeaWorld San Antonio will open Sesame Street Bay of Play, an all-new attraction for families featuring Elmo, Big Bird and all their friends. Sesame Street Bay of Play will include 3 acres of exciting rides, shows and play areas.

Sesame Street Bay of Play will be home to a colorful carousel with all the friends of Sesame Street. Other kid-sized rides include “Big Bird’s Spinning Reef,” a delightfully playful Ferris wheel; “Elmo’s Dolphin Dive,” a vertical drop ride; and “Abby Cadabby’s Rocking Wave,” a ride that rocks forwards, backwards and sideways. Kids can also beat the heat at “Little Bird’s Splash” that will feature 22 water elements such as bubblers, geysers, jets and dumping buckets. At “Big Bird’s 1-2-3 Smile with Me,” everyone’s favorite Sesame Street friends will greet, hug and take photos, and make memories that will last a lifetime. The “Happenings” stage area features musical performances with Elmo, Abby Caddaby, Zoe and Cookie Monster.

Sesame Street Bay of Play will be located in the area formerly occupied by Shamu’s Happy Harbor.

“Sesame Street has had a long presence in our park with character dines and performances, and we’re excited to expand our offerings for families and kids with Sesame Street Bay of Play,” said Dan Decker, park president for SeaWorld San Antonio.

Families will be able to watch the furry and feathered friends of Sesame Street on the big screen at SeaWorld’s 4-D Sea Star Theater. Sesame Street presents Lights, Camera, Imagination!, will feature Elmo, Big Bird and the rest of the loveable Sesame Street gang as they try to save the Sesame Street Film Festival. Their adventures are brought to life with zany 4-D gags and special effects like wind, bubbles, water and other surprises.

Families can enjoy a delicious breakfast with Elmo and his friends on select days at SeaWorld. Guests also may purchase unique items including Sesame Street Bay of Play merchandise, at World of Azul, Sea Star Gifts and Main Mast gift shops.

Sesame Street Bay of Play is scheduled to open March 2011 and will be included with general admission to SeaWorld.

As a special offer through Jan. 2, 2011, SeaWorld San Antonio will begin selling a one-year pass combo. Starting in early October, guests can purchase an adult and child one-year pass for only $99.99 plus tax. This offer, available exclusively online, is the best deal the park has ever extended on an annual pass.
