Video: SeaWorld San Diego’s Tallest And Fastest Coaster Is Testing
SeaWorld San Diego has thrill very excited with the opening of a shiny new roller coaster! Electric Eel, the park’s all new launched roller coaster will oficially debut on May 12th. SeaWorld has been testing the ride regularly and finishing work on the coaster’s station, queue ,and surrounding plaza.
Electric Eel, which has been built by Premier Rides, features three launches – two forward and one backward, to get trains up to a top height of 150 feet above the park. This on-ride video mix shows just what that ride will be like, including the full heartline roll at 150 feet in the air and a non-inverting loop that takes place after a long vertical dive.
The ride will be a Premier Rides Sky Rocket II model-the second for the chain. The first, Tempesto, can be found at Busch Gardens Williamsburg. Standing 150 feet at the highest point, riders will enter an inverted “heartline” roll and a twisting loop for an exciting feeling of airtime as they crest the top before breathlessly returning to the station. Electric Eel will not only be the park’s fastest and tallest ride, it will include a 60mph triple launch giving riders the park’s first upside down view of Mission Bay! It will be the park’s third roller coaster, amongst other rides and animal experiences!
“Electric Eel will bring a whole new level of excitement to SeaWorld,” said SeaWorld San Diego’s park president, Marilyn Hannes. “This new, first-of-its-kind coaster at SeaWorld will give riders the rare opportunity to feel what it’s like to move like an eel, twisting and flipping along nearly 900 feet of undulating track.”
The new area of the park will be complimented with a live eel display, featuring California moray eels, along with an educational experience called Mission: Deep Discovery. During this visitors, in teams of one to four, will go on a virtual experience in the deep sea while they encounter the marvels of the deep ocean.
With the purchase of a SeaWorld Annual Pass between now and May 12, members can be among the first to ride Electric Eel, and enjoy unlimited SeaWorld admission for a year, all for less than $10 a month.
Electric Eel will definitely get guests “charged up,” but it’s not the only electrifying experience at SeaWorld this summer: SeaWorld will debut the all-new Sesame Street Party Parade, starting May 5 and continuing on Saturdays and Sundays through July 1; and Electric Ocean, the award-winning nighttime entertainment extravaganza inspired by the bioluminescence of the ocean, returns June 16 and runs on select dates through Sept. 3.
SeaWorld is open 365 days a year. For tickets and more information, visit the official SeaWorld San Diego website by clicking here.
