ORLANDO, Fla. — SeaWorld Orlando is hard at work on a new coaster set to debut next year. Although the theme park hasn’t shared too many details about this still-unnamed attraction, a quick visit to the theme park reveals that construction has gone vertical.

The coaster is being built near the front of the park, taking over an area near Bayside Stadium that SeaWorld previously used for festivals. The first set of structures, which visitors can see before they enter the park, are now peeking over the constructions walls. Inside the park, the construction can be seen from the bridge over the park’s lagoon. 

In June, SeaWorld confirmed that its “landscaping project” was actually a new coaster. The park released renderings of the coaster showing its teal-colored track and the teal and yellow vehicles. The teaser video also appeared to riders in a standing position.

“Get ready to feel the power of the Pacific right here in Florida, letting the waves launch you on a one-of-a-kind ocean adventure,” SeaWorld said in its announcement at the time.

When it opens, the new coaster will be SeaWorld’s seventh one, following the addition of the multi-launch coaster, Ice Breaker, which debuted in February after multiple delays.

SeaWorld’s new coaster is slated to debut in the same year that Disney World plans to open its long-awaited TRON Lightcycle Run. Last week, Disney Parks chairman Josh D’Amaro revealed the coaster would open spring 2023. TRON Lightcycle Run was first announced for Magic Kingdom in 2017.
