    Random Thoughts Of The "Other" Park...

    Unfortunately, I have an AP to this place and I would regret it, that is, if it wasn't so cheap. I can manage to see both parks in half a day and become sick very fast being an avid coaster fan...


    compared to Disney...

    One time I was getting on revenge of the mummy and a worker there told me to change my shirt or I can't ride... I had on a classic mickey shirt..

    I told him I suppourt both parks equally.

    "It's a rat" he said.

    sad way to compete.

    I saw on TV that listening to Mozart makes you smart. So if you listen to Elvis, you'll become a GENIUS!

    I have not been there since December and I really do not miss the place. The only rides it has going for it is Hulk and Dueling Dragons. If I want all coasters-I make the trip over to Tampa for the big guys. IMO Sheikra and Montu blow Hulk out of the water.

    Does anyone on the list know how Expedition Everest will be like?

    I would go there almost daily after work to get my fix. And unfortunately, I moved away as they started building Sheikra..

    Do tell... how is it?

    It is pretty hard to describe! There are only three rows in a car-and the seats are rather deep and reclined back at an angle. I fell (literally) into mine! The ride up the lift is rather quick-taking about 30 seconds at a 40 degree or so angle. The view towards Ray Jay and the airport is awesome. Then its around 180 degree and a stop. The car slowly angles downward and hold for several seconds, but to me it seemed like an eternity! Brakes release and you drop about 200 feet (passing the enterance line on its right hand side) and up into an immelman (sp?). The car stops again 138 feet up and a second 90 degree drop occurs, into a tunnel. The ride turns back towards the load area and shoots through a water hazard. Well it is a hazard for though in line waiting to ride. There are a pair of tubes on either side of a car that shoots water into the air and onto folks waiting to ride. I may have missed several features, but that is what Monday is for

    I have not been to Sea World in about 20 years. The last time I went the shark encounter was the big thing.

    Tampa, thanks for the welcome! I found this site while looking up Disney trivia one evening.
