Storm Coaster features a 98-foot drop and 44-mph top speed. The ride begins in and ends in a show building, with the roller coaster portion of the ride at the beginning, followed by a splashdown return to the show building. You can see a POV video from the park in this news report. (For those of you wondering, Australia's Sea World is owned by Village Roadshow and is not affiliated with the US-based SeaWorld parks. Note that space in the name.)
The ride's the second big coaster to open in Australia this season, following the debut of Abyss, a Gerstlauer Euro-Fighter coaster, at Adventure World in Perth last month.
