Re: SeaWorld Orlando

There have been a couple of notable animal births at the Orlando parks over the past few months. In May, Stella (a Bottlenose Dolphin) gave birth to a female calf at Discovery Cove. The calf has been named Lola! https://scontent.flhr2-2.fna.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/fr/cp0/e15/q65/62465505_1016191527752569...

Re: Alton Towers Resort - Quick Questions

Hi I was just wondering what's the cheapest way to get tickets for the theme park for a couple of people who don't have annual passes but are joining us in the hotel, preferably a way that we can get the ticket beforehand so we can all go straight into ERT! We won't be going into the park until aft...

Re: SeaWorld San Antonio

The new wooden coaster is rising quickly and has been topped off already! It uses a steel frame much like InvadR at Busch Gardens Williamsburg, although this ride is already far taller than InvadR. The current rumoured name is "Abyss". https://i.redd.it/grfyklkpcs631.jpg https://www.reddit...

Re: Alton Towers Resort - General Discussion

Did a park that has had its signature ride closed for days just ask to be memed by thousands of guests?

Am I understanding this right?

I have a 16 minute Spinball extract on my phone, not the full 25 mins though. It's a recording I pulled from youtube a couple of years back.

Re: Thorpe Park Resort - Quick Questions

Are there staggered openings at Thorpe these days? I know DBGT opens at 12:00 (supposedly :lol) but are there any others? Presumably Rapids open a bit later. Nope, with exception of Ghost Train opening at midday, everything else is scheduled to open at park open, and typically is. You may even find...

Re: The Alton Towers Dungeon - New for 2019

It seems on most days they've taken two hours off the morning and added an hour in the evening, so an hour less overall on the majority of days. Cutting hours just over a month after opening is unusual, even by Merlin's standards! I actually thought the Dungeon was great, better than I expected, but...

Anybody know what's going on with Enterprise? It's nearly May and it still hasn't opened, it usually takes a week or two to assemble this model of ride.

^My thoughts as well Morgan. Buttering the planners up for a big risky application in the next couple of years is certainly a possibility.

SeaWorld Orlando will be getting a new rollercoaster next year. Rumours point to a family thrill launch coaster with inversions, possibly manufactured by Premier Rides. (Although SeaWorld often work with Mack and Intamin as well.) It will be located in the area between Shamu Stadium and Bayside Stad...
