Wave Breaker: The Rescue Coaster – will be the first ride in the SeaWorld portfolio that speaks to the company’s rescue mission.  Wave Breaker: The Rescue Coaster is inspired by the SeaWorld Rescue Team and its efforts, which have helped to rescue and rehabilitate more than 28,000 animals over the company’s 50 year history.

As of right now the lake has been dammed up to allow construction crews to drive to the bottom of the lake. This way they can start drilling footers for the supports.

The construction has just started on the lake bed for the new coaster. With track arriving, I’m sure we will see some vertical supports very soon.
