In October, we reported that the Pipeline Surf Coaster will be coming to SeaWorld Orlando in 2023, and today, we got our first look at the first-of-its-kind Pipeline vehicle.
The innovative surfboard-shaped Pipeline vehicle was designed by Bolliger & Mabillard Consulting Engineers Inc., to replicate the feeling of catching a wave. The seats will rise and fall to mimic the movement of the ocean as riders secured in a standing position embark on a nearly two-minute “surfing adventure” along 2,950 feet of track at speeds up to 60 miles per hour. The track’s roller coaster “waves” will also send riders to heights of 110 feet in the air with five airtime moments and a wave curl inversion.
“We are always looking for exciting ways to take thrills to a new level. This first-of-its-kind roller coaster will be the perfect addition to the already incredible lineup of attractions at SeaWorld Orlando,” said SeaWorld Orlando Park President Kyle Miller. “SeaWorld Orlando will be the only place in the world to ride a roller coaster like this and we welcome everyone looking for the chance to experience it.”
Pipeline Surf Coaster – the seventh roller coaster at SeaWorld Orlando – has a projected height requirement of 54 inches. Click here for more information.
