SeaWorld Orlando will open their newest ride, roller coaster Pipeline: The Surf Coaster in the Spring of 2023. This attraction is the world’s first surf-themed coaster concept. Riders will feel the power of the ocean in a whole new way, making Pipeline every thrill-seeker’s newest obsession.
The innovative design elements that make this a first-of-its-kind roller coaster are the “surfing launch” and “wave jumping” motions that riders will experience. Its unique surfboard-shaped ride vehicle will give riders an immersive experience from the moment it starts. They’ll be secured onto the roller coaster in a surfing position and will be launched at top speeds, feeling as if they’re catching a wave. Riders will then feel like they are hanging loose when their seats rise and fall to mimic the sensation of riding on a wave, while sending them through several gnarly twists and turns.
Each rider will get the rush of cutting through waves as they race up to heights of 110 feet in the air. and feel like they are about to wipe out when they go upside down on a wave curl along the 2,950 feet of track. Pipeline: The Surf Coaster will send riders on a journey reaching max speeds of 60 mph, with five different air-time moments and lasting a total of 1 minute and 50 seconds. The ride has a projected height requirement of 54”.
