New SeaWorld Kids rides almost ready?Sea World Orlando: Anyone else think this is too fast?
From Erik YatesAs everyone knows, Sea World Orlando is opening four new attractions this summer. Okay, three and a new Shamu Show. Shamu Express is just about done, there is a whirlpool themed teacup style ride and a tower (cant remember the type) I was there less than a month ago, and they had only poured the footers for the Shamu Express. Is anyone else kind of amazed at how fast all of this is suddenly coming together, especially since its taken Universal almost 6 months to get as far as it has with a ride that was almost complete to begin with.

Question two, will the addition of these new kids rides as well as the new Shamu show make you more likely to visit Sea World this summer?

From Melinda WebsterTo answer both questions ... no and no. I used to work on construction projects as an admin assistant and if they are working 24 hours or even 18 hours a day, I think it is plenty of time. If it is already up, then it gives them a whole month to test. I find Sea World a tad boring, so I typically go about every two years, since I went last year, I don't see myself going this year.

From Jason JacksonAnother thing to remember is that most rides are preconstructed and pieced together at the park, so this doesn't seem like too much of a stretch.
