I felt like I should finish up/add any last pictures from my Texas trip with TPR in order to get people excited for the 2010 trip ideas!

Seriously, TPR trips are the best thing ever. See all the pictures in this thread for MORE than enough proof!

Reposting from the other page:

SeaWorld San Antonio was on the list for the next morning. The last theme park! Schlitterbahn was the last park..I didn't take pics there.

I wasn't sure what to expect, it being a Busch park and a SeaWorld. I knew they had a few good rides, and was very anxious to ride them.

The park was nicely landscaped. Nothing amazing, but nothing close to a Cedar Fair park. I found the animal exhibits to be a bit dissapointing. I was expecting to see something on par with a zoo or aquarium, but just got a "look, here they are" and then leave. The dolphin encounter was pretty cool, but you had to pay to get close to them. I found that out the hard way! LOL!

But we got special treatment when during lunch they brought out some extra critters. They were pretty cool. Not forgetting Shamu!!! Furry edition.

Steel Eel - This was a pretty crazy coaster. The drops seemed so steep! My butt slammed down into the seat after every hill. Some fun airtime in the front and back seat. If the midcours didn't kill the speed, it'd be a top 10 coaster. It ruined those 5-6 airtime hills! Still loved the ride.

Great White - I'm not sure if this batman is shorter or customed or....IDK! But it's so intense. I was seeing spots every time I rode. My favorite batman of the trip. Awesome, not to mention the great theming!

Shamu Express - Skipped for animal exhibits

Journey To Atlantis - Meh

Texas Splashdown - So, me and Luko waited about.....45 minutes for this log flume. I think Antonio did too! I wish the wait wasn't that long, it was a bad A$$ log flume! It was like, 5 minutes long, had great drops, great wetness level...but the operations weren't too good. Seemed like every boat had 1-2 people in them. BLAH. But the ride still ROCKED. My favorite of the trip.

I did the..
-Penguin Encounter
-Shark Reef
-Dolphin Cove
-Bird Habitat

And thought they were all under par. They were still cool! But I was just expecting big things from a SeaWorld and Busch park. It just felt like a low budget park, and I think everyone else agreed when comparing it to the others.

Enjoy the pics!

Awesome dude! I agree that the animal exhibits I saw at SeaWorld were a little bit lacking, the park was really different than my home one. Texas was blast though, great pics!

While SeaWorld San Antonio certainly has its charms (chief among them, Steel Eel), I think it's a bit weak as a "SeaWorld."

Great photos, though--as always!

Yeah, I had no idea that when I was taking pictures of the dolphins; I had to pay to be over there! I wasn't feeding them or anything, just taking pictures.

It was awesome to relieve the trip in about 20 minutes! I miss it so much, being on that trip was certainly one of the best times I ever had.

Zach, you took some great pictures on this trip, and should definatly continue to take them as you do so well with the photography! Looking forward to the chance to catch up sometime in the future!

Sweet pictures. Its nice to see some photos and hear good things from the one Seaworld park that never seems to get much love because it's not in Florida or California.
