Sean: A big reason for our journey down to SeaWorld San Diego last week was to experience the new Electric Eel roller coaster that the park opened in May! This Premier Rides Sky Rocket II coaster combines a bunch of spectacular coaster elements into a compact layout, making it the perfect ride for SeaWorld San Diego. This is by far the most thrilling attraction the park has ever opened and we think it’s a lovely fit. Let’s take a look! Continue reading “Electric Eel – SeaWorld San Diego’s New Coaster!”

It’s ACE’s 40th Anniversary, so the convention is being hosted where the club began: Virginia (Six Flags America is also part of the itinerary, located in nearby Maryland).

Sean: This week we ventured to yet another few parks around the country. On some quick layovers we hit up two Cedar Fair parks. Valleyfair! was a new park for me, as where Carowinds was a much appreciated re-visit. Both visits took place within 24 hrs of each other, so why not create one report?
Alexander: Holiday World in Santa Claus, Indiana is an iconic brand in the American theme park landscape, famous for its friendly staff, spotless midways, excellent value, enormous water park, and stellar collection of modern wooden coasters.
Holiday World’s reputation is often louder than the park itself; the moves they make at this point are often not as boisterous as the enthusiast communities’ response to them. Everything – from management conflict to new rides – has been hotly discussed over the last 15+ years or so, and whether one’s opinion is positive or negative, it goes without saying that opinions of Holiday World are often strong ones.
