SeaWorld Orlando Park announced this Wednesday (19) that its newest coaster, “Pipeline: The Surf Coaster,” inspired by the surf universe as the name suggests, will begin operations in the second quarter of 2023.
Inspired by extreme sports, the toy’s proposal is to allow visitors to “surf” at heights. For this, the bottom of the cart will be a board where you can stand on the loops and feel the movements like facing the waves of the sea.
In an announcement to the media, park president Kylie Miller also emphasized that SeaWorld “will be the only place in the world with a roller coaster like this” and said she looks forward to welcoming the first visitors to experience the attraction.
A fast departure will be in the pipeline to deliver an immersive experience from the first second. Safety locks keep people upright so they can surf. The course will include slides through giant waves, while “seats” will move from top to bottom, offering realistic sensations.
The entire route will have 880 meters of bends, five peaks called “airtime” – in which weightlessness or gravity is felt – and an inversion that simulates a wave lasting 1 minute and 50 seconds. Its maximum speed will be 96 km per hour and it will reach a height of 33 meters.
Visitors must be at least 1.37 meters tall to experience the adventure on the seventh roller coaster in SeaWorld Orlando’s history. The toy was designed by Swiss-based company Bollinger & Mabillard Consulting Engineers Inc.
