Located in San Antonio, Texas is a huge rollercoaster with more camel back humps than one can imagine. The name of this coaster is Steel Eel. This rollercoaster seems to expand almost half the length of SeaWorld. The Steel Eel is three minutes of pure exhilaration! From the acceleration of the first drop, to the last little camel back hump, one will be glad that they are strapped in at the thighs with a lap bar. At the top of every hump, one is thrown up out of their seat, as if being on a saddle of a bucking bronco. Your hair flies in the almost tropical storm force breeze generated by the 65 mp.h. top speed.  With a 15o foot first drop, it is the tallest coaster at any SeaWorld park. If you love coasters, give it a spin.

  1. SeaWorld here opened two coaster-type rides during the past decade, even though the voters voted them down. The oldest and tallest one, Journey to Atlantis, paritally blocks views to the ocean, so when they built “Manta” last year, they made it low and fast instead of tall.
