Billed by SeaWorld as the first coaster of its kind in the world, Tidal Twister features a nearly 300-foot-long single-rail figure-eight track, elevated 16 feet off the ground. Designed as a horizontal ride, the coaster’s 16-passenger trains will reach speeds of up to 30 mph. By comparison, the Electric Eel coaster, which made its debut last year, has a top speed of 62 mph.
