SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment, particularly at SeaWorld San Diego made a announcement back in January that they are bringing a new coaster towards the park called “Electric Eel” in 2018 and a new expansion called “Ocean Explorer” in late Spring of 2017. Details are minimum of what the new coaster is about but, you can read the press release about it here at the park.
In this artist concept rendering show down below you can get a sense of scale size of how large this coaster will be and from the looks of it that, it appears to be a shuttle loop coaster for it’s design from Premiere Rides Sky Rocket II. This coaster will be the tallest and fastest coaster through out the whole park once it officially opens up.

Also to note that SeaWorld animal lovers will have educational displays to be incorporated into the ride and about the ride’s namesake and to allow “guests to power a virtual deep sea drone through a marine environment while learning facts about animals”. This will be similar technology towards the Submarine Quest ride at the “Ocean Explorer” expansion.
