I'm going to Sea World San Antonio next week and wanted to know how the park is overall. I also wanted to know how the 'coasters are. Thanks!!!

The park is quite lovely and is easily the cleanest of the large themers in Texas. The park is rather large (200+ acres?), but much of this is a central lake. The two coasters seems to have short lines as the status-quo. I don't recall any major flat rides, but there is a log flume, an OD Hopkins (?) river rapids, and some sort of shoot-the-chutes.
The park seems to draw more families and as such does not appear to have as many rowdy teens when compared to the likes of Fiesta Texas which is only a few miles away.

Steel Eel is wonderful, and the line is very short. However, a usual 1 train operation can make for a very annoying wait in the station. The ride offers wonderful airtime and a great view of the nearby lake. Great White is basically the same thing as Batman the Ride. Fun and fast! The rest of the Sea World is not as good as Sea World San Diego, honestly, because there are less animal exhibits and shows. There is also a log flume and a rapids ride. Have fun!

Both of the coasters are great, but I don't remember Great White being as 'extreme' as B:TR. I'm not saying it was bad, of course - far from it! Steel Eel has some great airtime, and as saviour said it has a very short line. When I was there, I got at least 10 rides on it without waiting a total of more than about 10 minutes. And most of that was waiting for the train to return to the station.
