Tidal Twister is closed down temporarily
SAN DIEGO, Calif. (June 5, 2019) — Tidal Twister, the newest ride at SeaWorld San Diego, was shut down for maintenance due to mechanical issues.
The roller coaster ride was closed on June 1, just a week after it opened on May 24th, according to the California Occupational Safety and Health Administration. Fortunately, there were no reported accidents or injuries associated with the ride closure.
SeaWorld is working together with the manufacturer to repair the ride and get it operating again.
Cal/OSHA will inspect the rider to ensure it can be operated safely once repairs have been completed.
The ride, which features dueling track cars, is one of several new rides scheduled to open in the San Diego park.
The cars travel at speeds of 30 mph around an infinity loop and cross in the middle. The last new ride to open was the Electric Eel in May 2018.
