Opened on June 27, 1984, the Sea Serpent was the first boomerang-style coaster built in the United States and is located on Morey's Mariner's Landing Pier.
The Sea Serpent consists of a single train with seven cars, capable of carrying 28 passengers. The ride begins when the train is pulled backwards from the station and up the first lift hill by a catchcar. After being released, the train passes through the station, enters a Cobra Roll track element, and then travels through a vertical loop. After being pulled up a second lift hill, the train is released to head backwards through each inversion once more, making the total amount of inversions per ride six.
On July 9, 1984 at around 9pm, the train stalled in the cobra roll element. It had completed the first inversion, but failed to complete the second. The rescue operation required scaffolding to be erected to evacuate riders, and took four hours.
