History[edit | edit source]
Triple hurricane opened with the new Cypress Gardens Adventure Park, a redevelopment of the existing Cypress Gardens botanical garden. The roller coaster was named Triple Hurricane after the three hurricanes Charley, Frances and Jeanne which delayed the parks reopening.
Triple Hurricane closed with the park on November 16, 2008 and remained standing but not operating. In January 2010 it was announced that the park had been bought by Merlin Entertainments who developed it into Legoland Florida. As part of this transition, Triple Hurricane was given a dinosaur theme and renamed Coastersaurus, a name used previously on a Gerstlauer family roller coaster at Legoland California.
Coastersaurus reopened on October 15, 2011.

Trains[edit | edit source]
As part of the redevelopment of Triple Hurricane into Coastersaurus, the train was repainted brown.
In 2013, the original train was replaced with a mini Mini-llennium Flyer train from Great Coasters International. The new train has the following layout: Single train with 12 cars. In each car, riders are arranged 2 across in a single row for a total of 24 riders per train. Riders are restrained by individual lap-bars and seatbelts.
