Arctic Rescue, the longest and fastest straddle coaster on the West Coast, will open to the public on June 2. Named as one of the most anticipated coasters of the year by USA Today 10Best, this will be the sixth coaster to open at the Coaster Capital of San Diego following the immediate success of Emperor and Electric Eel, plus guest favourites of Manta, Journey to Atlantis and Tidal Twister.
SeaWorld’s coolest new coaster invites your clients to hop on a snowmobile and launch at up to 40 mph on a chilly adventure as they race through the unpredictable arctic climate to help animals in danger. Guests 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. With its 48-inch height requirement, you can advise your clients that adventure seekers of all ages will enjoy the thrills and chills of Arctic Rescue.
The ride will also benefit nonprofit conservation partner Alaska SeaLife Center, to help raise awareness of arctic animals, including Alaskan marine animals in need in keeping with the Arctic-inspired coaster.
