Vertical Construction has begun on seaworld's Storm Coaster.
The crest of the coaster has been installed which gives an idea of how big this water coaster is.
Storm Coaster now edges out Sea Viper as the tallest ride in the park.
The first drop gently banks into a sweeping curve.
The top of the lift hill plateaus, giving the vehicle time to clear the lift hill chain before accelerating down the drop, so as to reduce wear on the chain dog -- the mechanism that engages with the moving chain.
Given the large and heavy nature of the ride's vehicles, the coaster section on these water coasters can't navigate tight sections of track. As a result this sections feature very wide banked turns.
