Wave Breaker: The Rescue Coaster is now officially open at SeaWorld San Antonio. The park has opened a first of its kind family thrill roller coaster complete with all the unique fun you will not find anywhere else. Wave Breaker will take riders through 2 launches as it races through 2600 feet of steel track. The ride simulates what it takes for SeaWorld’s animal rescue team to save animals on jet skis from dangerous situations.
“Wave Breaker takes our purpose of entertaining and inspiring our guests to the next level,”said SeaWorld San Antonio Park President Carl Lum. “The jet-ski style car design and layout of the track make Wave Breaker an exhilarating ride for thrill-seekers of all ages. For the first time, our guests will also be able to feel what it’s like to race alongside our animal care team when a call for help comes in.” Guests will board one of two trains for the coaster and will have their own individual jet ski style car.
Guests board Wave Breaker: The Rescue Coaster in a queue themed with stories from some of the more than 30,000 rescues by the SeaWorld Rescue Team over the past 50 years. Before launch, riders are assigned a mission – a sea turtle, dolphin or sea lion rescue. After the mission briefing, riders grip the handlebars and prepare to race into action covering 2,600-feet of track. The ride launches directly over the water, creating the sensation that riders are racing across the park’s lake. Each rescue mission takes a train of 16 riders through a more than three minute ride, reaching speeds of up to 44 mph and heights up to 61-feet.
“Wave Breaker provides a coaster experience unlike anything in the current theme park landscape,” said SeaWorld Vice President of Theme Park Development Mike Denninger.“While other coasters feature dramatic changes in speed, once you hit Wave Breaker’s first launch you’ll be moving fast throughout the entire ride. When you combine that consistent high speed with the banked and serpentine turns throughout the ride track that is 90 percent over the surface of the water you get an unparalleled ride experience.”
