I think Intamin has shown us with Cheetah Hunt that it can "do the crap out of a family ride." I'm sure this will be tons of fun.

Agreed, if Wave Breaker is half as fun as Cheetah Hunt, SWSA will have a huge hit on their hands!

UPDATE - Wave Breaker SeaWorld San Antonio

Hello Everyone,

It is Spring Break time here in San Antonio so I decided to head over to SeaWorld to see how far along the construction is on their NEW roller coaster, Wave Breaker: The Rescue Coaster.

I was very much surprised when I saw how much of the track has already been installed. In SeaWorld's latest release they estimate that over 70% of the track has been laid. Both magnetic launchers have been installed and you can now almost follow along how the coaster will traverse the lake.

I took a number of pictures today in order to show you the progress the construction crew has made on Wave Breaker. I sure hope I get the picture descriptions correct. There is a lot of track spaghetti out there and trying to figure out stuff can be daunting. I also cropped a few stills off of SeaWorld's video of Wave Breaker and a few from Coaster Studios. I hope I don't run afoul of either of them for using something from their videos.

Enjoy

Just a minor nerd comment but I love when parks don't release the full layout image or a POV of a ride when announcing the attraction, makes it a lot more fun when you finally get on the ride for the first time. Also I didn't realize this thing is going to be almost entirely over the water, should look great and and make for a really unique experience. I honestly kind of forgot about this ride being built but it might turn out to be the surprise of the year in America at least.

Also if you are reading this Cedar Point, keep on doin you, don't announce or reveal anything, just build the thing then open it.

It's coming along nicely. Good to see a new Intamin ride being built in the U.S.

A different perspective of the first hill. You can view both magnetic launcher areas including the one prior to the first hill which is said to be only 61 feet.

You can see it's a tyre drive launch like the other Intamins of this model (Juvulen, Jet Resuce, Mick Doohans Motocoaster)

Love the pictures!! But, its funny to see how small the supports are for this type of coaster compared to others. They don't look big at all, but could also have to do to how close most of the coaster is to the ground.

From the photos, it looks there will be a small lake beneath the coaster to give the appearance of a jet ski skimming over the water, so that's probably the reason the coaster is being built so low to the ground.
