Great trip report and just wanted to say I enjoyed every one of them.
Incidentally, the food picticured at Sharks Underwater Grill looks absolutely delicious. Although, I agree the entrees seem a bit heavy for lunch.
Read a few reports that Kraken had lost some of its smoothness over the year, but from your report it sounds like that is not the case. I am glad to hear it. Kraken holds a special place in my heart and I still regard it as the best coaster I have ever ridden. Can't wait to re-visit it again (as well as ride Manta) next year.
SeaWorld seemed pretty packed yesterday. Also wondering what time you rode Manta, as it seems the queue time never seems to match the actual queue length.
Look forward to more reports!
I am also curious about your queue times. Any info?
Lines seemed to blow up after 10:30.
You should update the SW 4-Hour Tour to include Manta.
The first time I rode Kraken in '06 it was awesome and very smooth. This time, not so much. Not sure when it was built but we all found it surprisingly rough. Atlantis was cool as always but Manta was something else.
On another note we also hopped over to Aquatica and had a great time. I am a huge Mouse supporter but I dare to say that Aquatica is the best water park in Orlando. The fast style lazy river is a blast.
