ORLANDO, Fla. (August 23, 2021)
– SeaWorld Orlando, voted the
best amusement park in the country by USA Today 10Best Readers’ Choice poll is
announcing that its coolest new coaster, Ice Breaker is opening in February of
2022. Named after the icy Arctic summits, Ice Breaker 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. With its 48-inch height requirement, adventure seekers of all ages
will enjoy the thrills and chills of Ice Breaker.
“We recognize there was a lot of anticipation and excitement for this
new ride, and then due to the unprecedented challenges of the last two years,
the opening was delayed.” said park President Kyle Miller, “We apologize for
this delay and thank our fans for their patience. We know that they are going
to love this one-of-a-kind thrill ride which complements our existing
exhilarating ride portfolio perfectly. We are excited to finally be able to
confirm Ice Breaker opening in February 2022.”
The opening of Ice Breaker is the perfect addition to SeaWorld’s
ever-growing ride portfolio. From the roller coaster thrills of Manta, Kraken,
and Mako, voted number one coaster in the country by USA Today 10Best Readers’
Choice poll, to the water rapids of Infinity Falls and the flume fun of Journey
to Atlantis, Ice Breaker joins the park’s famed attractions as a must-do
experience for thrill seeker everywhere.
