i heard on screamscape or on facebook that it would open in 2018 which is really too far long to me because i wish seaworld san antonio would have a few more coasters to be an actual amusement park like fiesta texas but no because its an animal entertainment park! not saying its sucks because it only has about three coasters and little bit of flat rides it just would be nice if seaworld sa could be aa little bigger with more fewer coasters & flats!

Here's the teaser video for the new coaster:


Wave Breaker: The Rescue CoasterTM Jets into SeaWorld® San Antonio


Double-launch, jet ski-inspired coaster based on marine animal rescue missions will be the first of its kind in North America, Debuting Summer 2017


SAN ANTONIO (September 27, 2016) — Race into action on a new generation of coaster that combines the thrill of the sea with the adrenaline rush of a roller coaster in ways never before seen or experienced. Coming to SeaWorld San Antonio in summer 2017, Wave Breaker: The Rescue Coaster will enable riders to feel what it’s like to race alongside SeaWorld’s heroic animal care team and veterinarians as they spring into action at a moment’s notice to help rescue animals in distress.


“The new coaster promises a ride of a lifetime that’s also unique to SeaWorld’s mission,” said SeaWorld San Antonio Park President Carl Lum. “Replicating an adventure limited to only a few trained professionals, Wave Breaker will launch riders into an exhilarating experience similar to going on an animal rescue mission. The coaster is sure to thrill, but also brings awareness to the brave efforts of our animal teams as they join forces with organizations around the world to help ill, injured, orphaned and abandoned animals.”


Wave Breaker: The Rescue Coaster boasts a variety of features inspired by the reality of jet skiing across a body of water. The unique jet ski-style car design is the first such coaster design in North America and engages riders in a straddled seating position. The design will allow riders to lean into a series of banked and serpentine turns, and grip the handle bars as they race over air time humps and a pair of high acceleration launches. Reaching heights of up to 61-feet, the majority of the coaster’s 2,600-foot track will be directly over water, creating the sensation that riders are racing across the park’s Ski Lake. With a minimum height requirement of 48”, Wave Breaker promises to be a dynamic coaster experience for the whole family.


“Inspired by our guests’ ongoing requests to learn more about how they can help support animal rescue efforts, each ride begins by telling the story of a rescue mission and invites guests to become personally involved in helping to protect animals,” adds Lum. “Wave Breaker: The Rescue Coaster will definitely be a thrilling ride, but we also hope it brings riders on a journey of discovery, as together we work to protect the wild wonders of our world.”


Wave Breaker: The Rescue Coaster marks a major addition to SeaWorld San Antonio’s coaster portfolio. With the addition of Wave Breaker, SeaWorld San Antonio will feature four coaster experiences, spanning a range of ages and thrills Wave Breaker joins:

1. The Great White® - a floorless steel rollercoaster challenges riders to 360-degree flips, breathtaking loops, corkscrews and thrilling curves at speeds of up to 50 mph


2. Steel Eel® - a true hypercoaster featuring a 15-story vertical drop, followed by a series of camelbacks giving riders periods of weightlessness


3. Shamu Express® - a junior-sized coaster perfect for families with younger children

This park really needed a coaster between Shamu Express and Steel Eel/Great White. This is a great fit for the park and it looks fun. I know when I show the video to my nieces later, they will be wanting to ride. Not to mention, it's going to be great to see an Intamin coaster being built again in the states.
