SeaWorld, San Antonio, Texas kicked off the season with one of the first new attractions to open in the country, Texas Stingray. From Great Coasters International, the tallest, fastest and longest wooden roller coaster in Texas began thrilling guests on Saturday, February 29. Then the park closed March 16 because of the pandemic.
Everything is bigger in Texas, and Texas Stingray is no exception. When the park re-opens, riders will face an initial 100-foot drop at 57º, reaching speeds up to 55 mph over 3,379 feet of track. Sixteen gravity defying airtime moments and a 100-foot tunnel are just some of the other superlatives this ride will offer guests.
“We are really pleased that guests to SeaWorld San Antonio can experience this record-breaking thrill coaster so early in the 2020 season, giving them more reasons to visit the park again and again,” explained Byron Surrett, San Antonio Park President. “Texas Stingray is one of the best new coasters in the world and we’re excited to have our first wooden roller coaster join our portfolio of unique ride experiences here in San Antonio.”
