Journey to Atlantis

Because the boats used on this Journey to Atlantis water coaster do not deal well with curved track, two turntables are used to change the boats' direction.  In the past, trains rotated 450 degrees on each turntable.  It gave riders a nice view of SeaWorld, but it took a while to complete the slow rotation.  When I rode the coaster in 2013, the ride was sped up thanks to letting the boats only complete 90 degrees of rotation before being released.
