The park invited several guests to go behind the walls for a construction tour of the new Premier Rides coaster today.
Obviously, there remains much work to be done around the coaster, including pouring concrete for some of the paths around the station. But the 1,900 feet of track are nearly complete.
Ice Breaker will feature four launches, sending riders backward out of the station, then forward, then backward again before a final 52-mph launch forward. Along the way riders will fly up, then fall down, Ice Breaker's signature 93-foot, 100-degree spike.
The description — with multiple forward and back launches to build speed — evokes a plussed version of the Sky Rocket II coasters, also from Premier, that SeaWorld has installed in San Diego and its two Busch Gardens theme parks. But Ice Breaker promises a unique experience with its different track configuration and ability to run two trains, thanks to a high-speed transfer track.
Even for non-riders, it should be fun to watch.
SeaWorld and Premier previously unveiled the coaster cars for Ice Breaker, at the IAAPA Expo in Orlando last fall. Ice Breaker will open this spring. For the latest discounts on tickets to SeaWorld Orlando, visit our travel partner's officially authorized SeaWorld Orlando tickets page.Tweet
