TIDAL TWISTER SET TO DEBUT: On May 24, Tidal Twister, SeaWorld’s dueling, figure-8 coaster, debuts to the public! Accelerating to 30 miles per hour, riders will twist and bank as if they are riding the tide along a tight, figure-8 track that includes dynamic Zero-G roll at the center section. Two trains, holding 16 passengers each, will load at opposite ends of the figure-8 and cross in the center with guests facing both forward and backward on the trains. In addition to the ride, this new attraction will feature a display of ornamental fish that will serve to educate park guests about Rising Tide Conservation. Started by SeaWorld in 2009, Rising Tide Conservation is dedicated to developing and promoting aquaculture of marine ornamental fish, providing a sustainable alternative to wild fish collection, which can result in tremendous damage to the coral reefs where they live. Aquaria: World of Fishes will include an aquarium that will be home to thousands of fish representing more than a dozen species, including yellow tang and harlequin tuskfish.
IT’S ALMOST TIME TO SPLASH AT AQUATICA: Aquatica SeaWorld’s Waterpark will be back to make a splash for a seventh season starting May 24, with a combination of thrills, a serene beachside resort atmosphere and up-close animal encounters.

Aquatica is located at 2052 Entertainment Circle in Chula Vista. www.AquaticaSanDiego.com.
