Discovery Cove Unveils Details of New Attraction

SeaWorld’s sister park Discovery Cove has announced plans for a new interactive area of the park called Grand Reef.

Inspired by reefs from around the world, the experience will offer different levels of exploration for guests.

For the timid, simply stepping into the water will offer a chance to interact with the fish.  Explore a little further by snorkeling in the deeper areas.

But for the full experience, guests will have the opportunity to take the optional underwater walking tour called SeaVenture.

Guests who pay an additional fee will be able to strap on dive helmets and walk underwater. They’ll come across lionfish and sharks (safely behind massive panoramic windows), one-on-one touches with unique animals and schools of fish and gentle rays swimming by.

Plans are to have Grand Reef open for guests in 2011. No word if admission prices will raise when this new attraction opens.
