SeaWorld San Diego unveils latest family-friendly coaster
SeaWorld San Diego’s next coaster, Arctic Rescue, will open in spring 2023.
Arctic Rescue will be the longest and fastest straddle coaster on the West Coast.
This family-friendly multi-launch ride invites guests to hop on a snowmobile and launch at up to 40 mph racng through an arctic climate to help animals in danger.
With a 48-inch height requirement, riiders of all ages can enjoy it.
It 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 on three 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.
“This new coaster is a great addition to our ride line-up and a perfect complement to the Wild Arctic exhibit,” said Jim Lake, SeaWorld San Diego Park President.
“The ride is also an educational opportunity for guests to learn more about climate change, how it impacts animals in the Arctic and what they can do to help.”
