Located outside the park's Sea Turtle aquarium, Riptide Rescue is a boat-themed spinner ride. Note that riders must be 50 inches to tall if not accompanied by an adult.

SeaWorld increased the rotation speed of the ride in October 2011, a few months after its opening.

One of the newer attractions at Sea World this is worth a visit if the wait time is less than 15 minutes. It is a simple ride but coupled with the nice breeze from nearby Mission Bay it can put a smile on your face.
