SeaWorld: San Diego Reveals New Emperor Coaster

Looks like more fun to look forward to.

SEAWORLD SAN DIEGO ANNOUNCES ‘EMPEROR’ AS NAME FOR NEW  2020 DIVE COASTER

New conservation partner, Penguins International, will raise awareness  for penguin conservation

SAN DIEGO (Nov. 19, 2019) – SeaWorld San Diego announces “Emperor” as the name of the
park’s new dive coaster scheduled to open in summer 2020.  This new roller coaster will be the
tallest, fastest and longest dive coaster in California, as well as the only floorless dive coaster in the
state!
Named for the world’s largest penguin, the new coaster will mimic this species’ amazing
underwater diving ability. Emperor penguins can dive to a depth of 1,800 feet.
Climbing to 153 feet with feet dangling in the air, riders on Emperor will be suspended on a
45-degree angle at the crown of the ride before plunging down a 143-foot facedown vertical drop
accelerating to more than 60 miles per hour! Riders will also experience inversions, barrel roll,
Immelmann loop, hammerhead turn and flat spin as they race along the nearly 2,500 feet of track.
Each of the floorless ride cars will hold 18 riders in three, six-person rows.  This is the first seating
configuration of its kind in North America.
“There will be no other coaster experience like this in California,” said Marilyn Hannes,
SeaWorld San Diego’s park president. “Emperor will both thrill our coaster enthusiasts and also
serve as an attraction that educates guests about the importance of animal and conservation
issues.”
This exciting attraction will highlight an important new animal-conservation partnership
between SeaWorld and Penguins International that will focus on penguin awareness and the
conservation needs of this special aquatic bird. A portion of the proceeds from sales of penguin

merchandise at the Emperor retail store will be donated to Penguins International to support their
important conservation, education and research efforts.
“We are excited to enter into this partnership with SeaWorld,” said David Schutt, president
of Penguins International. “It’s an amazing opportunity that will help advance our penguin
conservation programs at several high-priority sites and our public awareness campaigns that
highlight the threats penguins face in today’s world.”
The new Emperor coaster will be located adjacent to Journey to Atlantis in the southeast
corner of the park in an area that is currently a parking lot, and will be built by Bolliger & Mabillard,
based in Switzerland.
