SeaWorld San Diego Announces New Family-Friendly Straddle Coaster, Arctic Rescue, to open in 2023
Have you heard the freshest news straight from the waters of SeaWorld San Diego?!
Hot off the press!! There’s a new family coaster coming in 2023. Here are the deets and what we know so far.
* Arctic Rescue will be the longest and fastest straddle coaster on the West Coast
* New family-friendly ride with 48” height requirement has three exhilarating launches that increase in speed at each launch
* Ride to bring awareness to threats facing Arctic sea life from climate change and global warming
* Annual Pass Members will be the first to ride before the official opening
SeaWorld’s coolest new coaster will feature a unique indoor launch station where passengers will start their journey inside of the Wild Arctic exhibit and launch outside straddling a unique snowmobile style vehicle. Guests will race through the Arctic and experience three exhilarating launches, each faster than the last, at 34, 38 and 40 miles per hour. The straddle snowmobile-style seats allow for an immersive ride experience for each rider as they lean into banks and turns and glide up heights as tall as 30 feet along the 2,800 feet of track. Manufactured by Intamin Worldwide, each train will hold 16 riders in eight, two-person rows.
Fans who want to double the fun with unlimited visits to both SeaWorld San Diego and Sesame Place San Diego, the only theme park on the West Coast based entirely on the award-winning show Sesame Street®, can add-on a Sesame Place annual pass for as low as an additional $6/month.
