SeaWorld has revealed it is opening a sixth roller coaster at its Florida theme park next year.
The park in Orlando promises the new attraction will take riders to ‘predatory heights’ and that they will also experience ‘plunging thrills’.
SeaWorld has been teasing the roller coaster on social media using the hashtag ‘#BreakTheIce’.

Very few details about the attraction have been released and it is unclear what the roller coaster will be called.
However, SeaWorld has released a teaser clip for the ride, which shows an imaginary flight around a frozen landscape, with the camera weaving across icy water and plunging down snowy cliff faces.
The 22-second clip then ends with the SeaWorld Orlando logo and the promise that ‘a new coaster takes flight in 2020’.
SeaWorld in Orlando opened in 1973 with a mixture of animal shows and exhibitions.
But its first thrill ride, Journey to Atlantis, a combination roller coaster and flume ride, didn’t open until 1997.
The end of the teaser clip for the ride says that the ‘new coaster takes flight in 2020’
Its other roller coasters are called Kraken, Manta, Mako and the Shamu Express.
In March, the Orlando theme park also opened a six-acre Sesame Street land that features the eponymous street, the famous stoop, Mr Hooper’s store and Big Bird’s nest.
It is the latest move by SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment away from live animal shows, particularly those involving its famous orcas.
SeaWorld announced the end of its breeding programme in March 2016, following years of pressure from animal rights protests and shifting public opinion about orcas being held in captivity.
