    Indoor/Outdoor/ROTM Style Coaster to open at SeaWorld, CA in 2010

    Looks like Premiere rides (The designers of Revenge of the Mummy) is working on a fairly large indoor/outdoor coaster for Sea World San Diego. From the layout it looks like it will feature some of the same track transitions that ROTM has, with the major difference that this coaster will go outdoors. I am glad to see SWSD getting some much needed thrill rides, especially a big one like this. Here is a pic of the Layout.



    Here is the area that it will be located at.



    I can't wait!!!!!

    If it is as good as USF's ROTM, it might finally get me to go to Sea World San Diego. I will be living in Socal soon (in like a year or so), so I would probably go anyway, but this would make it way better.

    Sounds good, hopefully they won't go on the cheap like they did with Journey to Atlantis.

    Any chance this will be the same thing Orlando gets with Manta? That looks great.

    Yeah Manta is just a roller coaster with semi decent theming like Kraken, this coaster is going to be fully themed and be indoors and outdoors.

    That's what I was afraid of. I was hoping this is what we'd get from Manta.

    Manta is still going to Rock! From everything I have seen and heard Manta is upping the Roller Coaster ante, that Universal put down with Rock it!

    Sounds Great! However, they are going to have to get it past Councilperson Donna Frye. She was vehimently against Atlantis, and I imagine she isn't going to like this either. The problem is that SWSD is in her district, which is made up of mostly NIMBY's.

    It's part of the park's master plan, and stays under the 30' height limit. Therefore no voter approval needed

    Yes, a public vote is not needed, but building permits are, and she does have the power (and has used it in the past) to really slow things down.

    what's a NIMBY?

    and blah I've never gotten why San Diego is so against a successful theme park

    why do they constantly try to mitigate the successes of Seaworld and Legoland?

    is San Diego the county to avoid if your going to build a theme park?



    anywho I am really looking forward to this ride and hopefully it doesn't get budgeted or litigated to death before it's finally built. Seaworld could really use a nice draw/edge for all this theme park competition.

    NIMBY stands for Not In My Back Yard. In San Diego there is a segment of the population that wants things to go back the way it was before SD became a major tourist destination. Most of them live in the beach communities and around the bays. They are people(some of them surfers, like Donna Frye) who did OK when the aerospace industry was big in this town and there were a lot of high paying skilled labor jobs, and waterfront property was still obtainable The situation with Seaworld is aggravated by the fact that the land they are on actually is leased from the city. A tenous situation at best. I've always thought that they should have bailed out of the city lease a long time ago before they poured all this money into property they don't own. However it's very difficult, if not impossible now to build any project of that magnitude now with the California Coastal Comisson in charge of ocean front land (I forget how many hundreds of yards inland they have jurisdiction over). The situation in Carlsbad is similar, with a lot of retired aerospace and high tech workers living in developments that surround that park, although there is/was a sizeble buffer zone.

    Didn't Seaworld buy out a similar park years ago and then close it down? Why did they do that instead of moving their operation or something similar? or was the land situation the same?


    and bleh sounds like San Diego is a terrible place to build parks then, I'm surprised Legoland built there except I suppose it's a decent strategy to be inbetween Disney and Seaworld
