RE: Project 2018: Family Raft Ride

They’ve been marketing this ride quite a bit on their social media, but I can’t help but wonder if it’s actually going to be up for the 2018 season? The park opens in May and when I went for a job interview about a week ago, I didn’t see anything going on in the proposed location. Does anyone know when projects like this start construction?

EDIT: just checked their website

Needless to say this seems like a SUPER exciting addition for Ocean Breeze. I'll definitely be making my way over there next season...

Oh, and on that note, how much interest is there in updates on this thing? I'm considering contacting Ocean Breeze to find out if they'd be onboard with having BGWFans out for some construction coverage.

Looks like a solid addition for the park. However, Ocean Breeze made parking at my Aquarium job a fucking pain in the ass.

Well VMSM has another parking lot now. As I recall the aquarium used to have people park in the Ocean Breeze parking lot not the other way around

I'm was a little bit confused. And now I'm just sad.

When I saw proslide mammoth I was envisioning the proslide hydromagnetic mammoth.

And then I saw the innertubes... And I was like, wait those don't look right at all.

I mean, a vanilla mammoth is still cool. But a mammoth hydromagnetic would have been a new anchor attraction and a huge deal.
