SeaWorld San Antonio will open its all-new, high-thrill ride Tidal Surge for a pass member exclusive preview on Saturday and Sunday, February 26 and 27, a week before the ride’s grand opening. The grand opening ceremony will be on Saturday, March 5, 2022, when the ride will open to all guests.
Tidal Surge, featuring two pendulum-like arms, will soar progressively higher to a staggering height of 135 feet at its peak. The dueling arms will alternate sides and sway back-and-forth at 68 mph, creating multiple airtime moments that levitate guests out of their seats with each swing. Riders’ legs will dangle and hang as they soar over the waterski lake with views of the park, while reaching multiple negative G moments before swinging back towards the earth.
“We’re excited to add another thrilling ride for our guests to enjoy,” said Byron Surrett, SeaWorld San Antonio Park President. “Tidal Surge will set records and be an exciting addition to our already impressive collection of rides that appeal to our guests who enjoy adrenaline pumping experiences.”
