SeaWorld Orlando continues their push to expand and enhance with the announcement of a brand new river rapids attraction, Infinity Falls, set to open in the summer of 2018!
Thrilling rapids will roar through the brand new rainforest river experience, while adventure-seeking guests plunge down the world’s tallest river rapid drop.
“We are constantly looking at new ways to amaze our guests – Infinity Falls will do that, and more,” said Jim Dean, President of SeaWorld Orlando Parks. “From the excitement of the thrilling rapids, to the unique vertical lift element, it will be an adventure that appeals to the entire family. Infinity Falls continues our commitment to investing in our park, and developing new ways to entertain and inspire our guests with meaningful, fun-filled vacations.”
The new ride incorporates extensive research and inspiration from the rainforests of South America and it’s “flowing rivers found within.” SeaWorld will make Infinity Falls the centerpiece of a new rainforest-inspired area, complete with a village and interactive experiences with wildlife native to South America.
“Water makes up more than 70% of our planet,” said Brian Morrow, Vice President of Theme Park Design Experience. “We developed Infinity Falls to tell new stories that showcase the beauty and sheer power of water and the amazing wildlife that lives in it. The result is a new river rapids adventure for our guests to explore, and actively help freshwater ecosystems in a way that only SeaWorld can bring to life.”
Additionally, SeaWorld also announced that The Bubble Legend, Fan Yang, will be performing live for guests of the park this summer beginning Memorial Day weekend.
If that wasn’t enough, thrill seekers will be able to experience the brand new virtual reality experience on the roller coaster Kraken, featuring an all-new fantastic voyage, starting Friday, June 16.
