SeaWorld Orlando has announced the next big attraction to make a splash at the park, Infinity Falls, a thrilling rapids ride will debut in Summer 2018. Guests will enjoy the brand new rainforest river experience, explore the surrounding village, and then the bravest can while plunge down the world’s tallest river rapid drop.
We heard Brian Morrow, Vice President of Theme Park Design Experience talk about the new attraction at a press event today. The show started with a sizzle reel that shows off the story behind Infinity Falls:
As mentioned in his Morrow’s presentation, the new area of the park will also bring new animals to SeaWorld, including a sloth. We got to meet Mila the sloth along with Jim Dean the president of SeaWorld Orlando:
“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.”
To bring Infinity Falls to life, designers were inspired by the rainforests of South America and the flowing rivers found within. Each raft will twist and turn through a lush jungle environment as guests experience the feel of exhilarating Class IV rapids. A unique vertical elevator will lift each raft for a dramatic launch into the river, 40 feet below.
“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.”
The addition of Infinity Falls is the perfect addition to SeaWorld’s ever-growing ride portfolio. From the roller coaster thrills of Mako, Manta and Kraken to the water flume fun of Journey to Atlantis, Infinity Falls will soon join the park’s famed attractions as a must-do experience in Orlando.
I can’t wait!
