First Look at New Undertow Roller Coaster at Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk

The sign says it's coming in summer, which gives it about a month to get up and rolling.

The new coaster, Undertow, was expected to be opened earlier, but there were problems with the European import. There was as six-week delay getting some parts for the coaster that replaces the former Hurricane coaster. 

Now, inspectors are running the ride making sure it's fit for humans. Catch some video of the twists and turns above.

The ride has to be approved by the State Office of Safety and Health before the public can ride on it. No date for the grand opening has been announced.
