SeaWorld’s New Orlando and Tampa Bay Roller Coasters Opening Spring Next Year


The countdown for the newest roller coasters coming to SeaWorld Orlando and Busch Gardens Tampa Bay can officially begin.

Orlando’s Ice Breaker and Tampa Bay’s Iron Gwazi will be opening in spring 2021, according to the parks’ websites.

Originally, both coasters were set to open this past spring until the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic closed the parks for three months. Last month, SeaWorld Entertainment announced that it would delay most of its upcoming attractions to 2021.

This past Friday, SeaWorld Entertainment declined to say if passholders would get sneak previews or which month between mid-March and mide-June of the spring season the two coasters would open next year.

It’s fair to suggest Iron Gwazi has drawn a lot of interest from coaster junkies.

The 206-feet-tall hybrid coaster will go up to 76 miles per hour. One vertical drop is 91-degrees down. Busch Gardens Tampa Bay has dubbed the coaster as “North America’s tallest and the world’s fastest and steepest hybrid coaster.”

Ice Breaker, a more family-friendly coaster, goes both forward and backward as the coaster reaches up to 52 miles per hour on a 90-second ride time.

Theme park analysts have suggested that Ice Breaker will give families more to do at SeaWorld Orlando, helping move past the park’s history on focusing on animals.
