SeaWorld Orlando’s Pipeline coaster set for grand opening



SeaWorld is about to launch the highly anticipated Pipeline surf coaster to the public for the first time, with B&M manufactured attraction to open to the public tomorrow (May 27th).

Dubbed a “new genre of rollercoaster”, an innovation from the ride maker creates a distinctly different ride action for this coaster with its flexible standing position.

The coaster is designed to look and feel like the rider is using a surfboard, with the ride’s restraints rising and falling to mimic the sensation of surfing on a wave.


SeaWorld describes the ride as having “unparalleled freedom of movement” for its riders. The coasters' inversions have also been designed to mimic the movements made by surfers on a wave, with five airtime movements and a ‘wave curl’ inversion.

Reaching speeds of up to 60mph (97kmph) and a maximum height of 110ft (33.5m), the 2,950ft (899.2m) long and 110ft tall (33.5m) surf coaster will be SeaWorld Orlando’s seventh coaster.
