    New Information on SeaWorld Orlando's "Antarctica"

    Fantastic news coming from SeaWorld Orlando regarding their new themed area: Antarctica - Empire of the Penguin. Take a look at what guests can expect to see in 2013, along with the first official picture of the vehicles that will be used in the brand-new dark ride included in this expansion!:

    SeaWorld Orlando Reveals More Details About its 2013 Attraction, Antarctica – Empire of the Penguin

    Orlando, FL – At Pow Wow in Los Angeles, one of the world’s top travel shows, SeaWorld Orlando designers and marketing execs revealed more details of the park’s 2013 new attraction and its largest-ever expansion, Antarctica – Empire of the Penguin. Details revealed included:

    Antarctica – Empire of the Penguin will include a first-of-its-kind family adventure ride that utilizes new technology for an experience that can change from visit to visit. Designers also revealed that guests will be able to choose the level of thrill they experience on the ride. Each car seats eight guests.

    Guests will be introduced to a new SeaWorld star – a young gentoo penguin. The young gentoo becomes the ride’s guide and leads guests on an exciting journey through the dangers and wondrous beauty of the Antarctic.

    Antarctica – Empire of the Penguin will get SeaWorld’s guests closer than ever - and out among - its colony of penguins including gentoos, rockhoppers, adelies and kings. How close has yet to be detailed, but designers consider the guests’ encounters with the penguins to be the first of their kind in any theme park or zoo in the world.

    Immersing guests in a colony of penguins means Antarctica – Empire of the Penguin will be the coldest theme park attraction in the world. Designers have declined comment on the engineering it will take to place SeaWorld guests among a colony of penguins whose habitat must stay in the low 30 degrees for comfort.

    The footprint for Antarctica – Empire of the Penguin is the biggest of any expansion at a SeaWorld or Busch Gardens park. Park execs consider Antarctica – Empire of the Penguin an all-new “realm,” rather than a single attraction. Antarctica’s scope includes the ride, penguin habitat, gift shop and restaurant.

    One good thing about having to cancel my trip this year to Oct 2013 is that I'll be able to experience "Antarctica" I'm really looking forward to it , looks great .

    Every cloud has a silver lining RachaelK It's great that you'll be able to enjoy this ride now. We're not visiting again until 2014 at the earliest so I'm going to have a very long wait until I get to enjoy the fun. Looking forward to all of my TD family giving me the inside info on how fab the ride is.
