    But how does he know that? Like, I wouldn't say it's confirmed because a part-time Alton Towers worker says it is. Until I see it from a valid source, I ain't believing it.

    Yeah, that video is hardly concrete evidence. It sounds to me like he's reading the text from Screamscape though.

    So, how about a Screamscape source: http://www.screamscape.com/html/seaworld_florida.htm#InfinityFalls

    Thanks Hixee, now Screamscape is much more of a reliable source than someone who spends most of their time cradling a litter picker.

    Not that anyone even cares about this project..... but here are two photos from Twitter from yesterday. One of the sign about the ride and one of the construction site from Sky Tower.

    Anyone know why this isn't finished yet? I have annual passes to SeaWorld, aquatica, and Busch gardens. I was just there last week and it doesn't even look close to finished ☹️ we as pass holders are supposed to get first rides according to SeaWorld so when it is finally finished I'll definitely let y'all know how it is

    @CP6 probably knows, but it's really unlikely he'll be allowed to tell. But asking might be worth a shot anyway.

    EDIT: Oh crud, tagging people with usernames shorter than four characters is a bit of a hassle. Oh well, he drops by the forums from time to time, maybe he'll see the post anyway.

    I hate to be awkward. ;)

    Anyway, the ride isn't too far off from completion, and has started testing:-

    I doubt it. Word is they are having issues with multiple pumps moving water in the ride and the filtration system isn't working.... The ride has been drained, again.

    Intamin have made tons of rapids... Surely the only difference with this one is the elevator? But even that hasn't been the main cause of issues.

    This is one of the better construction updates this subforum has seen lately. Just today I found out that half of the attractions in the stickied threads around here had been open for months without anybody noticing. Keep posting updates, and we may be able to get the status up to date within a month of its opening!

    Manufacturers are always changing providers of parts and technology and means of certain aspects of their rides such as the pumps on this etc., everything has teething issues.
