We are at SeaWorld tonight to see more from the Summer of Mako.
The entire area surrounding Mako has gotten a makeover and is now known as Shark Wreck Reef.
Shark Encounter has a new look with the same viewing tunnel.
Sharks Underwater Grill has a special drink menu for Mako. We got the Mako American Red Ale. Refreshing on a hot day
20 minute wait posted for Mako. Actual wait time, 5 minutes!
More Mako themed food and drink items are available throughout the park.
Love the artwork by Guy Harvey at Mako
5 minute wait for Manta too, awesome!
Going for a few more rides on Mako. Lots of fun, definitely great for coaster enthusiasts of all ages!
Remember when the wait for Antarctica was hours long? Only 10 minutes tonight!
Loving the new coaster skyline at SeaWorld . Had a great night on their awesome rides.
Sunset rides on Mako!
Thanks again to Renée for yet another amazing update from Orlando.

Yesterday was media day for Cobras Curse at Busch Gardens Tampa and the park was awesome enough to invite us out to check out their new Mack spinning coaster.
Below we've got some amazing pictures and video for you taken by Steve who was on hand for the festivities.

Welcome to the Cobras Curse
The ride is amazingly photogenic
The park provided us with an amazing POV, Reverse POV and off-ride footage
Snakes ... why did it have to be snakes
Let's head in and check out the queue
The queue is amazingly detailed and air conditioned which was very much needed yesterday
Video of the awesome queue pre-show
We'll leave you with a few more shots of the ride
Overall Cobras Curse is a crazy fun ride and something that is definitely needed at the park. It has good forces without too much crazy spinning and will do amazingly well with all of the parks demographics.

Last Friday was the big VIP party for the new Discovery Point at Sea World San Antonio and Mary was there along with her daughter to experience the all new area and bring us these great pictures.
Written by Mary Noel Revel DeLeon
Any VIP party has to have a great band!!
The new area is amazing looking.
Lots of great underwater viewing windows.
Hanging out with birds and drummers
And of course, no event is complete without lots and lots of food.
But the star of the show was definitely Discovery Point
A bit more information on the new area:
There is a kiosk where you can plan to have a day discovering dolphins and beluga whales and I believe sea lions up close and personal.
It is better to book ahead because they are pretty booked up.
The area where they have the dolphins is great although you aren't allowed to touch them which is great for the dolphins. The viewing area below more than makes up for it.
The staff were of course super helpful.
For more information on Discovery Point be sure to check out the info on the SeaWorld San Antonio website.
Thanks again to SeaWorld San Antonio for having us out for the VIP party. It's greatly appreciated.
