Park of the Week: Islands of Adventure

Get your first look at new coaster trains, from the IAAPA Expo

November 13, 2018, 2:16 PM · Kennywood, SeaWorld San Diego, and Busch Gardens Tampa unveiled the cars for their new roller coasters today at the IAAPA Attractions Expo in Orlando.

We've talked a lot recently about Steel Curtain, the record-setting nine-inversion, Pittsburg Steelers-themed roller coaster that it coming to Kennywood next year. And the team at JRA, coaster designer S&S and Kennywood certainly have carried the theme in the coaster's car design.

For its reveal of Tigris, the Sky Rocket II coaster coming to Busch Gardens Tampa, Premier Rides did something different, presenting the car in cake form. Yummy!

Finally, SeaWorld San Diego and Skyline Attractions unveiled the lead car for the upcoming Tidal Twister, a Skywarp Horizon ride that might or might not be a roller coaster, if anyone wants to get into that argument.
