ORLANDO, Fla. - SeaWorld Orlando, like most theme parks in Central Florida, is a hotbed of construction, and we were really excited to get to go behind the construction walls to learn more about the new Infinity Falls attraction opening later this summer.
Infinity Falls will be the first attraction at SeaWorld Orlando to tell a story beyond the ocean and share a message of fresh water conservation through the adventure of a white-water river expedition.
Aboard the raft that seats 8 passengers, riders will embark on a five minute adventure through a lush rainforest environment inspired by some of the world’s most incredible freshwater ecosystems featuring the world’s tallest drop on a river raft ride and an innovative elevator lift designed to transport the rafts to the top of the ride’s 40-foot drop.
As part of the park’s new “Park to Planet” initiative, a mission to help guests understand some of the challenges facing the planet and inspiring them to help, the new attraction will be the centerpiece of a newly themed area designed to resemble the basecamp of explorers and scientists.
After riding Infinity Falls, the entire family can explore the village and take part in interactive experiences.
One of which is a location, just outside of the entrance to the attraction with carvings of animals native to South America, where SeaWorld Orlando’s Animal Ambassadors will provide up-close encounters to guests throughout the day.
Another is an interactive play area that combines play with education to create a positive impact on freshwater ecosystems, reinforcing “Park to Planet” in real time.
In the village you will also find a gift shop with attraction merchandise and a dining location with 14 new craft beer offerings that are themed to how the camp was set up using modular buildings that were air-dropped into the expedition camp.
