    Another really great investment from the Orlando park.
    *tries to forget they're putting VR on Kraken*

    This is brilliant! Exactly what Sea World needs! Absolutely love the structure for the vertical lift too!

    This looks like an excellent addition to the park. The drop looks awesome!

    Structure looks fab, it'll have to be very good to compete with Bilge Rat up the road.
    Is the drop as long/as steep as River Quest?

    The lift and drop thing reminds me of Divertical at Mirabilandia, all in all I think that this is going to be a wonderful addition to the park, provided that the theming standard continues in the same way as previous instalments.

    I love it, but the name and tagline are a little tacky for me. I can put that aside though because it looks absolutely fantastic! Anybody know where abouts in the park it's going?

    It's going in where the sea garden is, along from the nautilus theatre where they do/did the animal ambassador meet and greets.

    I wonder whether the restaurant up there is due to be demolished or not. It used to be a great all you can eat pizza place but it wasn't open when I last went. I would expect to see it go as this looks like a large development.

    All-in-all this looks great and really compliments their line up without them needing to remove much from the park to put it in. Weird seeing a jungle theme in SW, at first glance this seems more Busch Gardensy, but it still seems very aquatic themed and looks to be fresh new technology for the age old classic ride type. Thumbs up!

    Busch/Seaworld design team love a good metallic lift system at the mo.

    Quite excited to see the layout of this, that first drop should be insane. I agree with others that this is a perfect addition to the Orlando ride line up.

    Based on other rides with vertical lifts and drops on raft rides... My bet would be on Hafema <3

    Edit - I guess Intamin has done it too

    I will be extremely disappointed if the ride/drop doesn't last for infinity, as advertised.

    This is just what the park needed. I'll be honest, I'm quite excited to see what SeaWorld is like in the coming few years due to their business development plans!

    To be fair, I was actually thinking Hafema also, but I thought Intamin would be the better option... Or good-old British Interlink!

    I like how it pours water on you the whole way up. This should be a good and very wet ride.

    The misuse of ellipses is really starting to get to me.

    Do you have a source to say it's Intamin?
