SeaWorld Orlando has announced that there will be an all-new roller coaster coming to their park in 2016.
The ride will be “Orlando’s tallest, fastest and longest coaster”.
An official statement was released by SeaWorld:
Something is stirring beneath the surface at SeaWorld Orlando, preparing to rise from the ocean depths and soar to thrilling new heights. Get ready for the frenzy of SeaWorld’s new 200-foot-tall coaster. In 2016, this thriller will take its place atop the food chain as Orlando’s tallest, fastest and longest coaster. More details on the new addition will surface in late-May. SeaWorld is a one-of-a-kind theme park with a variety of attractions including awe-inspiring animal encounters, thrilling rides and spectacular shows. Follow #nothingfaster as the frenzy starts.
Rumors have been circulating for several years that another coaster would be coming to SeaWorld, and just recently the rumors started to heat up again. Speculation is that the new coaster will be located by the Nautilus theater.
Based on certain verbiage in SeaWorld’s official statement—such as “frenzy” and “atop the food chain”—together with the rumored location being in close proximity to Shark Encounter, the obvious guess would be that the new coaster will be themed to sharks.
Further details will be officially revealed by SeaWorld in late-May. Stay tuned to Orlando United for this and more information about SeaWorld and all the new attractions coming to Orlando.
