oooh another new Aussie Coaster, I am curious if this is going to be a custom Mack Water Coaster or a Clone, also is this coaster going to have some white track sections, based on the first picture, I think it might have.

Now this definitely is also going to be a good coaster for Australia, and will suit the Sea World park very well.
I wasn't actually expecting Sea World to get one for this season, but I am glad they are.

Yeah, I am really looking forward to this up coming season, I have only been on one Mack Water Coaster and that was Poseidon at Europa Park, and if this is anything like that this is going to be really fun.

Seaworld Australia's poster for this Storm is pretty awesome.

Vertical Construction has begun on seaworld's Storm Coaster.
The crest of the coaster has been installed which gives an idea of how big this water coaster is.
Image
Storm Coaster now edges out Sea Viper as the tallest ride in the park.
Image
The first drop gently banks into a sweeping curve.
Image
The top of the lift hill plateaus, giving the vehicle time to clear the lift hill chain before accelerating down the drop, so as to reduce wear on the chain dog -- the mechanism that engages with the moving chain.
Image
Given the large and heavy nature of the ride's vehicles, the coaster section on these water coasters can't navigate tight sections of track. As a result this sections feature very wide banked turns.

This Thing is huge! I was expecting pretty tall but not that tall! That does look amazing!

I personally didn't expect it to be that big based on the previous installations of Mack Water Coasters, but this is very impressive.

This is looking to be a great coaster! Looks a little short though. Still love the look of those swooping turns though.
