Looks cool to me.
Glad to see this going vertical. It should be a big year for the SeaWorld parks here in Florida with 2 new coasters opening in 2020.
My god did this age poorly.Thanks for the tidbits. 2020 is an exciting time to be a theme park fan!!

Only bumping because I was looking for an Ice Breaker thread and found this.
If anyone is interested in construction updates Midway Mayhem has been documenting the coaster very thoroughly for a long time. Now it's basically just setting there ready.
They are essentially putting them on hold until the pandemic is completely over. Then when everyone is trying to make cash fast by bringing in people by the truck load, they will open it up. If the delta variant had not picked up so hard then likely ice breaker would be making shaved us but now but instead its collecting bird droppings. Even then though Im not so sure its gonna be the big money maker draw they hope it to be. Currently the rides with the most people are the water rides not the coasters. Even though atlantis is in bad shape it can still bring in 90 minute waits which certainly beats Mako which is half that. Don't get me started on infinity falls. That ride even at the later part of the evening it can still bring in more people than most rides in the park combined. Alas ice breaker is just collecting rust and will likely continue to collect it until some time next summer.Has been for months. I have no idea why.
They’re cheaper. They get to brag about having “multiple” launches without paying the extra couple million for each of those launches. They also pay for less steel.These coaster designs where you launch back and forth a few times to fill out ride time while saving money on coaster track should be reserved for smaller regional parks, not destination parks. I don't understand why so many major parks are adding them.

Yeah I know. They're cheaper, hence intended for smaller parks. Then again, SeaWorld hasn't exactly been raking in the dough lately.
I dont see an issue here...especially with the placement of this one. Its a net gain. It really is a great addition when you look at the other rides at this park. It brings far more variety to the park. What else are you going to fit in this foot print? Plus we can hope project penguin moves forward in the future.
It can be surprising what coasters can fit where with only a little effort. I never thought Velocicoaster could fit where it did and be as long as it is. SeaWorld could have, instead, saved the money for another world class coaster instead of one intended for small regional parks.
