    ^ This isn't replacing the rapids ride is it? I certainly hope not, it's one of the better Rapids rides around.

      No, this ride will not replace Shipwreck Rapids. It will not pass over any part of its route either, although it will come close to the curve of the rapids that circles the large outdoor dining terrace.

        I can't wait for this! Once again it proves that in 2011/2012, so-cal is the place to be for theme park fans.

          I'd say the coastal commission is a bigger hindrance to anything Sea World does more then the city is.

            The Coastal Commission approved the project last week.

              I am fully aware of that, I was merely pointing out that its the Coastal Commission that stands in the way of much of what Sea World can do and not the city.

                I personally can't see the Coastal Commission being that much of a problem. Do what Walt did, build into the ground like for Pirates and HM. Of coarse that would mean more dark-rides for seaward. But I am A-OK with that.

                  The water table is pretty high in that part of Mission Bay. If they went any deeper than the exhibit is now any structure there might try to bob to the surface like a cork.
