SeaWorld San Antonio Announces Wave Breaker: The Rescue Coaster
After ten years since a major ride opened, SeaWorld San Antonio has officially announced the addition of Wave Breaker: The Rescue Coaster for 2017!
After months of speculation on our previous articles, SeaWorld finally confirmed the new Jet Ski Coaster! Race into action on a new generation of coaster that combines the thrill of the sea with the adrenaline rush of a roller coaster in ways never before seen or experienced. On “Wave Breaker: The Rescue Coaster,” riders will be able to feel what it’s like to race alongside SeaWorld’s animal care team.
Park President Carl Lum stated in a news release:
“The new coaster promises a ride of a lifetime that’s also unique to SeaWorld’s mission. Replicating an adventure limited to only a few trained professionals, Wave Breaker will launch riders into an exhilarating experience similar to going on an animal rescue mission. The coaster is sure to thrill, but also brings awareness to the brave efforts of our animal teams as they join forces with organizations around the world to help ill, injured, orphaned and abandoned animals.”
At the cost of $18 million, Wave Breaker will reach a height of 61 feet, speed of 44 miles per hour, and have a track length of 2,600 feet. The unique jet ski style trains will be the first of its kind in North America. The majority of the coaster will be built over the park’s Ski Lake, creating the sensation that riders are soaring over the lake rescuing animals. Wave Breaker will be manufactured by Intamin, and will be Intamin’s latest coaster in America since Skyrush in 2012.
Wave Breaker: The Rescue Coaster is SeaWorld’s first major attraction since Journey to Atlantis in 2007. The new coaster will join SeaWorld San Antonio’s Great White, Steel Eel, and Shamu Express to round out an awesome lineup of thrills!
