Sea World Orlando reveals the name of the first coaster of its kind


New roller coasters are coming soon to Sea World Orlando. It’s a new kind of ride.

Scheduled to open in 2023, the new coaster, named Pipeline, the Surf Coaster, will make its debut. The design puts you on your feet for the ride as you step onto a coaster that resembles a surfboard.

You’re harnessed on the ride, but you can still feel like you can move around. You will “surf” up to a height of 110 feet. The track is over half a mile long and you’ll reach speeds of up to 60 miles per hour.
