This morning the theme park sent out a cryptic email to media that read:

Something is stirring beneath the surface at SeaWorld Orlando, preparing to rise from the ocean depths and soar to thrilling new heights. Get ready for the frenzy of SeaWorld’s new 200-foot-tall coaster. In 2016, this thriller will take its place atop the food chain as Orlando’s tallest, fastest and longest coaster.  More details on the new addition will surface in late-May.  SeaWorld is a one-of-a-kind theme park with a variety of attractions including awe-inspiring animal encounters, thrilling rides and spectacular shows.  Follow #nothingfaster as the frenzy starts.

Word is this new coaster will be built behind Kraken, with the entrance near Shark Encounter. Given the email kept using the word “frenzy” as in “feeding frenzy,” a term used for when sharks feed, is it possible this new coaster could be shark themed? Could be, since SeaWorld San Antonio has The Great White inverted coaster, and SeaWorld likes to share attractions amongst its parks.

As the email states, more details to surface late-May. Until then, let the speculation frenzy begin. Give us your best guesses as to what the coaster will be in the coments.
