Storm Coaster Overview

Water coaster themed around a container port hit by a cyclone.

Guests walk into a devistated warehouse, and board 'life boats'.

From the station the boats float along a channel and exit the building to the outdoor lift hill.

The coaster section consists of wide sweeping drops and turns, and a final drop and camel hump, where the track re-enters the building through the hull of an upturned ship.

The splashdown of the ride is in the flooded interior of the ship, with numerous special effects as the boat floats back to the unload area.

Storm Coaster makes use of the building once occupied by Bermuda Triangle, however only the load/unload station and final splashdown section of the ride are in the building

The entire roller coaster section of the ride is located outdoors.Originally the ride had a planned September 2013 opening. This was pushed back to late 2013, ostensibly due to the birth of a polar bear cub at Sea World and the associated extension of Polar Bear Shores that instead became the main drawcard in the September school holiday period.
