I don't know if I'll ever get there, or how the ride will be. But Alex (Alice?) is cute! Hey, I'm partly deaf..wasn't sure of her name!

Although I already chimed in long ago on my thoughts about the coastal commission and restrictions they've set on the Sea World which affect this attraction, I've been there recently and now wonder if Sea World really needed another ride in the first place. I suppose I should reserve judgment until it's done but I'm concerned about them displacing manta rays for this. ( Only to bring them back and put around the attraction later. ) Rollercoaster noise isn't exactly their natural habitat. When is it too much?
