5 new USA theme park rides to try in 2019

Repeat visitor to the USA’s best theme parks? The good news is there are always new experiences on offer to make your hair fly back - here’s our pick of the best new theme park rides and rollercoasters in the USA for 2019. 

Infinity Falls at SeaWorld Orlando

Expect to get seriously soaked when you get on Infinity Falls, the new record-breaking thrill ride, at SeaWorld Orlando. Passengers on this water ride pass along rapids, down chutes and pass through waterfalls before you plunge down a 40ft drop into whitewater - the tallest drop of its kind.

 

 

 

 

Twisted Cyclone in Six Flags over Georgia, Georgia

Get a serious adrenaline rush on this new steel and wood rollercoaster at Six Flags over Georgia in Georgia. Highlights include a hair-raisingly steep 75-degree initial drop from nearly 10 storeys in the air, straight into a vertical reverse cobra roll and 10 moments where you’ll experience ‘airtime’. The park has 11 crazy rides to choose from, including the 20-storey Goliath hyper coaster, the 24-story extreme swing ride SkyScreame, and the world's first hybrid zero gravity wave slide in its Hurricane Harbor water park.

 

 

 

Tidal Twister, SeaWorld San Diego

Another new ride for spring 2019 is the Tidal Twister at SeaWorld San Diego. This exciting duelling coaster accelerates to 30mph, as riders twist, turn and bank along a figure of eight. The special twist? Two trains set out from the opposite ends of the figure of eight and charge towards each other as if in a duel.

 

KareKare Curl, Aquatica, Florida

Thrillseekers will love the new KareKare Curl attraction at Aquatica Orlando water park, which opens in spring. Hop on a raft and you’ll experience weightlessness as you climb the vertical wave wall during the ride. While you’re there, try Ray Rush, the park’s newest attraction, which was recently named the world’s best new water ride.  

Sesame Street at SeaWorld Orlando

The new Sesame Street experience at SeaWorld Orlando will be more family-friendly that frightening, when it opens in spring 2019. Big Bird fans will be able to meet their favourite characters on main street, and enjoy six colourful, themed rides, including Elmo’s Choo Choo Train, Cookie Drop, Abby’s Flower Tower, Super Grover’s Box Car Derby, Big Bird’s Twirl ‘n’ Whirl and Slimey’s Slider.Posted on: 08/12/2018
