SeaWorld San Diego has started construction on its new roller coaster which will be the “tallest, fastest and longest dive” coaster in California.

It will be located adjacent to the Journey to Atlantis ride in the southeast corner of the park, and is due to open in summer 2020.

The roller coaster will climb to 153 feet and riders will be suspended on a 45 degree angle at the crown of the ride before experiencing a 60mph, 143-foot face-down vertical drop.

The ride experience will last for two minutes and will feature inversions, a barrel roll and Immelmann loop, hammerhead turn and a flat spin along almost 2,500 feet of track.

It was announced in January this year, but the name has not yet been confirmed.
