Santa’s New Sleigh
Thirty-two Santas boarded SeaWorld Orlando’s new flying coaster, Manta last week. SeaWorld Orlando sent me a pic and a link to the video below. I got to give them credit. With the recent Google Street View feature and the company name change, they know how to stay in the news.

A Gift to My Readers
Also, since it’s Christmas, I thought I’d give my readers a little gift. It took a little work, but The Coaster Critic’s Blog now has a Forum! It will be a better alternative to the Discussion Page and hopefully it will allow for more organized discussions on things NOT covered on the blog. I still prefer the on-topic discussion to be in the comments section on my posts. But, it seems like there are plenty of discussions that my readers want to have that don’t fit with any blog posts.

I am new to forum management so please bear with me as I work out the kinks. I hope to have the forum up and running in a few days. Although, you won’t be able to register yet, I invite you to head on over there and check it out. There’s a link in the footer and there may be a link in the top nav in the future. Visit the forum and Merry Christmas!

Check out this video of 30+ jolly santas braving Manta:

What’s Your Take?

    it looks as if you need to become a member to use the forums, how do you become a member?

    Go to the forum page and click on the "register" button. Provide a bit of info about yourself and you're all set. Then, start to post because Nessie and I are pretty lonely over there!

    Holy crap, when did you put all this up? This is my third time on the site since yesterday, and I've never seen it like this. Great work, CC!

    Hi! I know this is kinda off topic however I’d figured I’d ask.

    Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest writing a blog
    article or vice-versa? My blog addresses a lot of the same topics as
    yours and I believe we could greatly benefit from each other.
    If you might be interested feel free to shoot me an e-mail.

    I look forward to hearing from you! Great blog by the way!
