SeaWorld Orlando/ Busch Gardens Tampa announce three new major roller coasters

Along with keeping some old favorites like Seven Seas Food Festival and Inside Look, that gives guests a behind-the scenes tour of how animals are cared for, comes new surprises in 2020 for the parks.

SeaWorld Orlando announced they will be bringing “Sesame Street Weekends” to the new year.

They will also be debuting their newest roller coaster, "Icebreaker."

The park says this is their 1st launch coaster that will actually ‘launch’ guests four times, including a “reverse launch into the steepest beyond vertical drop in Florida — a 93-foot tall spike with 100-degree angle.”

Busch Gardens Tampa then announced two new coasters coming to their coast.

"Solar Vortex" will be a brand new water roller coaster that combines rapid descents and multiple rotations as "America's first dual-tailspin water slide."

It was also feature what they call ‘aqualucent elements’ “harnessing the power of the Florida sun into colorful patterns that shine through the slide as riders reach speeds of up to 20 miles per hour.”

The last new coaster to be announced is "Iron Gwazi," 'North America's tallest, fastest and steepest hybrid coaster.'

Based off the mighty crocodile, this is a re-birth of their original wooden coaster ‘Gwazi,’ now combining “the classic nostalgia of a wooden coaster and the bold innovation of a steel coaster,” and stands at 206 feet tall.

It also promotes at 91 degree drop and top speeds of 76 mph.

Busch Gardens adds, “the journey will include three inversions and 12 airtime hills as it races along more than 4,075 feet of purple steel track.”
