Named after the icy Arctic summits, Ice Breaker will feature four airtime filled launches, both backwards and forwards, culminating in a reverse launch into the steepest beyond vertical drop in Florida – a 93 feet tall spike with 100 degree angle. The thrills continue as riders fly over a near vertical tophat maneuver into a series of exciting twists, turns, and airtime hills.

The highly anticipated thrill ride is located across from the park’s Wild Arctic exhibit, which houses beluga whales, walruses and harbor seals.

Riders who get on the Ice Breaker are treated to four airtime-filled launches that go backward and forward. The ride also goes into a reverse launch that travels along a 93-foot tall spike with a 100-degree angle, which is the steepest beyond vertical drop in Florida, according to SeaWorld Orlando.
