    So SeaWorld San Antonio is getting what appears to be a new AquaTrax sometime. Or it might be a clone of that thing at Sea World Australia.

    It's part of an expansion with a dark ride of the same theme going to SW San Diego. A new hotel might also be going to the San Diego location as well.

    Re: SW San Antonio | SeaWorld Rescue: The Ride | Aquatrax(?)

    The whole Aquatrax thing has basically evolved into a different coaster type now (Jet Rescue, Manta, Juvelen), so I don't think we'll see another true Aquatrax again.

    They've retained the seating style/position, but longer trains allow for better capacity.

    I don't think it will be a clone of the one in Australia as that Sea World is a separate park and has nothing to do with the Busch Parks.

    ^True but they're getting the exact same ride type with the same theme, that's a link not a coincidence.

    And spite I don't want to have to go back to that hole.

    Don't forget that Sea World San Diego already has this ride type, too.

    From what I've heard it won't be a clone of the one in Oz and Ankapark. But a longer version.

    Think this is a good fit for an already decent park lineup.

    The upright sitting position launchers (Juvelen, Jet Rescue etc) are listed as "Family launch coasters" in the Intamin site.

    Think this will be a great addition! Juvelen is super-awesome <3 <3 <3

    Re: SW San Antonio | SeaWorld Rescue: The Ride | Intamin Lau

    For reference, here is the Australian Jet Rescue. Very much a low-to-the-ground family coaster, and seemingly different layout than we are seeing here. However, I'd anticipate a similar tire launch system.

    Family didn't fit. I was intending to put it there, though.

    Re: SW San Antonio | SeaWorld Rescue: The Ride | Intamin Lau

    Was browsing Screamscape and completely forgot about this. Apparently they're looking to begin construction next month and it'll cost $18 million. Seems pretty high for a family coaster but it might be a lot more than just a family cred. There's more speculation saying that it'll actually be called Wavebreaker: The Rescue Coaster. Both names are meh.

    SeaWorld also released this teaser months ago.

    ^Wasn't Juvelen ~9€ millions? Which would translate into $10 million. Either this ride will be substantially larger (which I can't imagine since Juvelen was already pretty big) or have some extensive theming (more likely). Either way this is really exciting! Juvelen is fab <3

    Yeah, it was in that ballpark of amount.

    Any chance of this being a Vekoma? I've seen them marketing the jetski train for a few years now..

    And people say 2017 is going to be a down year. This looks like Juvelen 2.0, and that's exactly what I was hoping for.

    At least the park are being proactive and starting to build for a future when they don't have any whales left, and these sort of rides are pretty fun whichever big manufacturer builds them.
