Looks like the Sea World park in Australia is getting a Wooden Coaster as part of new expansion coming in 2020, which also includes a Star Flyer and a Top Spin. Here's some concept images and a model of it:

The coaster is apparently going to be built by the Gravity Group and actually has some impressive stats. 32 metres height, 80 kph top speed and over 1 km long. This is certainly going to be a great addition to the park along with all the other additons.

Video of the new land and attractions:



Also, it turns out the woodie will have the rear two rows facing backwards:

UPDATE: SEA World’s $50 million new precinct the New Atlantis will include one of the largest wooden roller coasters in the world – and the first to include backward facing seats.

Village Roadshow Theme Parks expect the 32-metre high Leviathan will become an icon of the Gold Coast when it opens to thrill seekers in December next year.

Guests will ascend the Leviathan before careening down the lengthy track, over tight crests and curves, hitting 80kmh.

Only two seats will face backwards, so visitors chasing an extra shot of adrenaline will have to get in quick

The roller coaster’s opening will follow the launch of the Vortex this December.


Certainly going to be interesting to see how that looks.
