Back in June, SeaWorld shared a first look at the new attraction saying guests will feel the power of the Pacific, letting the waves propel them into a one-of-a-kind ocean adventure. The new coaster is currently under construction just north of Bayside Stadium in an area formally used for SeaWorld’s festivals.
