The Coaster

Designed as THE ultimate family launch coaster experience, “Penguin Trek” features a unique snowmobile styled ride car.

Once aboard, riders will embark on an exhilarating journey through the breathtaking vastness of Antarctica as they join a penguin research mission unlike any other.

Featuring two exhilarating launches and a maze of twists and turns, this unforgettable coaster moves at speeds of up to 43 mph across a 3,020-foot track that traverses both indoors and outside.

Yet, what sets this experience apart as truly extraordinary is its unparalleled finale: as the coaster comes to a halt, guests will find themselves not in a simulated penguin colony, but in the very heart of SeaWorld Orlando’s own penguin habitat.

The Details

An experience for the whole family, the ride accommodates rider heights from 42-inches to 77-inches (3ft 6in tall to 6ft 5in tall).

This family coaster’s engineering prowess and world-class design are credited to Bolliger & Mabillard, and this will be the park’s eighth coaster.

“We are incredibly excited to unveil our newest addition to SeaWorld Orlando’s outstanding coaster lineup in Spring of 2024,” said Jon Peterson, President of SeaWorld Orlando.

“This family launch coaster embodies the spirit of adventure and exploration, offering an immersive journey through the wonders of Antarctica while further connecting our mission and commitment to our animal care, education and research. We know our guests were ready for a new thrill that the whole family could enjoy, and we’re excited to redefine the family launch coaster experience alongside our longstanding partners at B&M.”
