A first-of-its-kind roller coaster is opening at a popular Orlando theme park, with high speeds, high thrills, and a “high surf” advisory.

After months of anticipation and a delay due to Hurricane Ian tragically striking Florida, SeaWorld Orlando has finally unveiled more details regarding its newest roller coaster, showing fans why the theme park is the “Coaster Capital of Orlando.”

What started as a “landscaping project” at the Orlando theme park has slowly but steadily become a highly anticipated project for SeaWorld fans, even when the Park withheld most of the details regarding this new project until recently. During a press release today, SeaWorld finally revealed that the previously unnamed attraction would open at the Orlando theme park in Spring 2023 and that its official name would be “Pipeline: The Surf Coaster.”

“We are always looking for exciting ways to take thrills to a new level. This first-of-its-kind roller coaster will be the perfect addition to the already incredible lineup of attractions at SeaWorld Orlando,” said Kyle Miller, SeaWorld Orlando Park president. “SeaWorld Orlando will be the only place in the world to ride a roller coaster like this and we welcome everyone looking for the chance to experience it.”

Pipeline will be the first-of-its-kind surf coaster where Guests will feel like they are surfing the highest waves as they will be standing up through all the twists and turns of the innovative coaster. Pipeline will take Guests on a thrilling ride 110 feet up in the air, reaching speeds of up to 60 miles per hour through over 2,900 feet of track.

Per SeaWorld’s website:
