SeaWorld Orlando and Busch Gardens Tampa Bay have unveiled details of new attractions coming to the parks in 2020.
It marks the first time in four years that both parks have launched new coasters in the same year, in addition to a new water slide in Tampa. SeaWorld and Busch Gardens Pass Members will be among the first to experience the new attractions.
In the spring of 2020, Iron Gwazi will open at Busch Gardens Tampa Bay and will be North America’s tallest, fastest and steepest hybrid coaster in the world, standing 206 feet tall, with a 91-degree drop, and reaching top speeds of 76 miles per hour.
The journey will include three inversions and 12 airtime hills as it races along more than 4,075 feet of purple steel track. With a 48” height requirement, Iron Gwazi will be an exciting thrill attraction that families can take on together.
Solar Vortex will open at Adventure Island in spring of 2020 and will be America’s first dual-tailspin water slide. The family raft slide combines high-banking rotations and rapid descents, sending sliders on a swirling journey through two open tailspin features.
SeaWorld Orlando will break the ice, so to speak, with the debut in the spring of 2020 of it’s first launch coaster, Ice Breaker.
Ice Breaker, located near the Wild Arctic Attraction, will feature four launches, both backwards and forwards, culminating in a reverse launch into the steepest beyond vertical drop in Florida — a 93-foot tall spike with 100-degree angle.
