This family-friendly thrill coaster features a total of three launches, whereas the passengers start their journey inside of the Wild Arctic exhibit straddling a unique snowmobile style vehicle. They will race through the Arctic and each of the three exhilarating launches is faster than the one before with a top speed of around 65 km/h (40mph). The snowmobiles allow for an exciting ride experience for each rider as they lean into banks and turns and whizz along a total of over 850 meters (2’800ft) of track.
Intamin’s Family Launch Coaster, as its name suggests, is a more family-oriented attraction, but at the same time still quite thrilling. Using Intamin’s state of the art friction wheel drive system in combination with a unique and highly popular vehicle design, this coaster type has proven to be an exciting variation on Intamin’s family of launch coasters. The upright seating position, in a side-by-side arrangement with two passengers per vehicle, in combination with the individual lap-bar paired with foamed seats, guarantees a safe and unique ride experience combined with a high comfort for passengers.
Intamin is proud of having contributed to the success of Sea World San Diego and would like to thank the entire team for the great cooperation.
