    Yikes, the first reviews I've seen trickling in on Twitter for this ride are not looking too favorable. That's a bummer

    Not as much a bummer as you might think. As Eric and I have described, the ride portion of Antarctica is only a small part of the experience. All the initial ride reviews and twitter posts are from ride enthusiast who I believe are only looking at this from a ride perspective. To fully understand this attraction you have to understand first and foremost that SeaWorld is about caring for animals and preserving our world intact. To help you identify with the hero, Puck, Brian Morrow utilizes the trackless ride system to achieve an overall goal. In my humble opinion his goal is achieved quite handily.

    This attraction must be experienced personally.

    one of the penguins jumped out of the pool area and into the guest area.

    one lady interviewed said she feared for her children. REALLY? The penguin was so scared all he wanted to do was climb back up and go into the water. he/she kept seeing other penguins swimming through the clear glass. a guest shot a video and is online

    Thanks Eric, I was thinking about doing a impromptu meet up at the last minute but I figured you might be doing things for the podcast. I was actually wearing my yellow Florida Coaster Club shirt with the FLCC logo on the front and "We ride all year" on the back.
