SeaWorld will open a new Arctic Rescue coaster at its San Diego theme park in early 2023.

Set to become the longest and fastest straddle coaster on the US West Coast, the ride has been designed to bring awareness to threats facing Arctic sea life from climate change and global warming.

Arctic Rescue is incorporated in SeaWorld's Wild Arctic exhibit, which is home to a live ringed seal, walruses, and belugas, some of the species most impacted by Arctic sea loss. The ride is inspired by the efforts of the SeaWorld Rescue Team and its dedication to rescuing animals in distress and in need of care.

The family-friendly, multi-launch ride invites guests to hop on a snowmobile to take part in an adventure as they race through the unpredictable arctic climate to help animals in danger.

Reaching speeds of up to 40 mph, the ride will feature a unique indoor launch station where passengers will start their journey inside of the Wild Arctic exhibit.

Manufactured by Intamin Worldwide, the Arctic Rescue can carry 16 riders in eight, two-person rows on an 2,800ft-long track with a top height of 30 ft.

Jim Lake, SeaWorld San Diego's park president, said: "We're continuously looking for ways to add new experiences to the park for our guests and this new coaster is a great addition to our ride line-up and a perfect complement to the Wild Arctic exhibit.

"The ride is also an educational opportunity for guests to learn more about climate change, how it impacts animals in the Arctic and what they can do to help the issue.

"I truly feel that seeing these animals up-close at SeaWorld allows guests to build a stronger connection and encouragement to take action to help protect them."
