Thrill seekers, SeaWorld San Antonio announced a new world record ride on Monday, August 23.
SeaWorld San Antonio will soon feature the world’s tallest and “fastest screaming” swing. The attraction’s pendulum-like arms will soar progressively higher to a staggering height of 135 feet at its peak.
According to the release, Tidal Surge, the ride’s name, will open in the spring of 2022.
Tidal Surge will seat 40 riders and feature two arms that will alternate sides and sway back-and-forth at 68 mph, according to the amusement park.
Riders’ legs will dangle and hang as they soar over the waterski lake and take in the beautiful views of the park, SeaWorld states. It creates multiple airtime moments that will levitate guests out of their seats, the attraction adds.
Tidal Surge will mark a major addition to SeaWorld San Antonio’s thrill ride portfolio, which currently includes four roller coasters, a high swing, two animal rescue adventure experiences, and a family coaster.
