An official opening date has been set for SeaWorld San Diego’s new dueling roller coaster, Tidal Twister.
Guests will feel the power of the ocean when this horizontal, figure-8 dueling coaster makes its debut on May 24, 2019.
As Tidal Twister speeds up to 30 miles per hour, riders will ride the tide along a tight, figure-8 track that includes dynamic Zero-G roll at the center section. Two trains holding 16 riders will load at opposite ends on the track and cross in the center, with guests facing both forward and backward on the coaster trains. The ride will have a height requirement of 48 inches, making it accessible for younger guests and their families.
“There is no other coaster experience in the world like Tidal Twister,” said Marilyn Hannes, park president of SeaWorld San Diego. “The two trains duel one another and guests will see the excitement on the faces of the other rides. You’ll almost feel like you can reach out and touch them. The tight turns, the inversion and the airtime hill will leave our guests wondering which way is up.”
Tidal Twister will be located in the northwest corner of the park, adjacent to the Aquaria touch pool and aquarium. The coaster’s conservation element will focus on sustainable aquaculture and coral reef protection.
