I thought Ice Breaker was a fun ride
Agreed - it would be nice to have more theming. The cancelled SeaWorld Dubai park had a polar-themed roller coaster that looked interesting in the concept art. From what I remember, it had at least a polar bear statue.I'm not impressed with the new coaster, it seems too generic. It looks way too much like something you'd see at a Six Flags park with a sticker on it.
It doesn't even have the sticker. They could have integrated some form of theming into it. Like an ice cave with polar bears. Something!

I haven't been on Ice Breaker yet so I can't speak to the actual ride, but I can say that SeaWorld's coasters are great but overall could use more theming. That's something that sets Universal and Disney apart - show scenes and animatronics. I'd love to see more of this in SeaWorld.
It's probably because they are trying so hard to focus more on rides vs. animals to change the public's perception and compete with the other parks that they are quick to add Ice Breaker without taking their time and making it truly amazing theme-wise. I know they didn't have a lot of land to work with for this attraction but hopefully it doesn't become SeaWorld's standard. I've heard rumors that a wing coaster is next and maybe that'll get more attention/creativity.
I was referring to the Worlds of Discovery resort that was announced for Dubai that would have included SeaWorld, Busch Gardens, Discovery Cove, and Aquatica theme parks. Unfortunately, it was canceled. Since then, SeaWorld has announced and is building an indoor aquarium in Abu Dhabi which is set to open next year.SW hasn't canceled the park in Dubai
