Instantly jumped to the top of my B&M hyper list. The layout is about as perfect as it gets with tons of airtime and perfectly executed turns (could have used a helix somewhere, but that's a very minor quibble). The shorter trains (only 7 rows here as opposed to 8 or 9 on most B&M hypers/gigas) mean that the back row is not quite a differentiable from the middle of the train, though the front row is definitely worth an extra 15-20 minute wait. The themeing around the entry area is excellently done, and the music and effects preceding the trains zipping by and skimming the lagoon is a nice touch. Sea World's collection of B&Ms can match just about any coaster park in the US.
