Coastersaurus, previously known as Triple Hurricane, is a wooden roller coaster located at Legoland Florida in Winter Haven, Florida, USA. It is located within the Land of Adventure area of the park.

Coastersaurus is an ACE Coaster Classic.[1]


Triple Hurricane opened in 2004 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 park's reopening.[2]

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 roller coaster at Legoland California.

Coastersaurus reopened on October 15, 2011.

The original train on Coastersaurus was replaced with one from Great Coasters International in 2013.


A 13-year-old boy fell from the ride on February 25, 2006. The park released a statement saying that the child had acted on a dare to maneuver out of his restraint and stood up before falling as the ride ended.[3]


Coastersaurus has an out and back layout with a crossover before and after the turnaround. It has several airtime hills.


The ride originally operated with a red train with five cars. Riders were arranged two across in two rows for a total of 20 riders.

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-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.
