SeaWorld Orlando has announced the opening date for its new Ice Breaker coaster will be February 18, 2022.
SeaWorld Orlando has released new photos of its roller coaster Ice Breaker, which is now set to open in February 2022.
One highly anticipated attraction that is scheduled to at Walt Disney World in 2021 is Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind at Epcot, and we’ve been given a first look at the ride vehicles…
SeaWorld Orlando has officially phased out the Kraken Unleashed’s VR headsets, returning the roller coaster to its original design.
Guests and the media were excited at the VR element to the ride when it was introduced in June 2017. The headsets added made riders feel like they were underwater on an adventure and dodging sea creatures.
Today is the day that Busch Gardens Tampa Bay opens their newest coaster, Cobra’s Curse, to the public.
The steel roller coaster, which is located in the Egypt area of the theme park, reaches a maximum speed of 40 mph and features an 80-foot snake statue. A 70-foot vertical lift takes riders within inches of its 3 foot-wide eyes and 4-foot-long fangs.
When it opens to the public today at SeaWorld Orlando, Mako, a 200-foot-tall coaster reaching speeds up to 73mph, will become the tallest, fastest and longest roller coaster among Orlando’s theme parks.
Mako is one of the world’s few true hypercoasters, a group of roller coasters known for high speeds and steep drops and hills that create a feeling of weightlessness or “air time.” As the sleek coaster cars crest each hill, riders — secured only at their laps — float out of their seats, nearly weightless.
We’re getting closer to the opening of Mako at SeaWorld Orlando, and the coaster has had its first test run.
Using water-filled test dummies to simulate actual riders, Mako took its first trip along its 4,760-foot steel track.
This week, SeaWorld Orlando announced the opening date for the Mako hypercoaster will be Friday, June 10, 2016, a little over two months away.
Once open, Mako will be the tallest, fastest, and longest coaster in Orlando, and it’s designed for speed and constant airtime. Riders will soar up to 200 feet high and reach speeds up to 73 mph.
This week, SeaWorld Orlando installed the final piece of steel track for the Mako coaster, due to open this summer.
Following tradition, the 12,500-pound, final piece of track was topped with a waving American flag as it was lifted high in the air by a giant crane, and then bolted into place by workers.
