IceBreaker; SeaWorld’s First Launch Coaster is now Open !
We were super excited to be invited out to experience the most anticipated new coaster at SeaWorld Orlando, the IceBreaker!
The coaster opened Feb 18th and was commemorated with a special ceremony featuring the breaking of an ice ribbon, in keeping with the ride’s Arctic theme. SeaWorld Orlando, voted the best amusement park in the country by USA Today 10Best Readers’ Choice poll in 2021, features the most coasters in a single theme park in Orlando.
Named after the icy Arctic summits, Ice Breaker features 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 brand-new coaster is located across from the park’s Wild Arctic exhibit and complimented by the popular themed Glacier Bar and Altitude Burger.
We got to ride the coaster as many times as we wanted (within reason of course) and it was a rush! Super smooth and very fast, the most thrilling part is that there really is nothing holding you in or to hold onto. For those that are not thrill seekers or are not that into roller coasters, this may not be the one for you. But to those of us that love whatever a coaster can dish out, you will not be disappointed in this one!
“Our Annual Pass Members had an exclusive opportunity to preview the ride prior to opening and the feedback is fantastic!,” said Park President Kyle Miller. “Ice Breaker is a one-of-a-kind thrill ride which complements our existing exhilarating ride portfolio perfectly. With the opening of Ice Breaker, SeaWorld features the most coasters in a single theme park in Orlando and we are excited to introduce the rest of our guests to this highly anticipated coaster today.”
