Even though SeaWorld Orlando just opened their new TurtleTrek attraction last week,they are already looking forward to their next attraction, which will take guests all the way to the southern continent.
Antarctica – Empire of the Penguin is set to open in Spring 2013 and will be the park’s biggest expansion to date. This week the park revealed more details on the attraction.
The attraction will utilize new technology that will allow guests to choose the level of thrill they experience on each ride through.
Each boat-like car will seat up to eight guests at a time.
Also along for the ride is a young gentoo penguin who will become the rider’s guide through the wilds of the Antartica landscape.
Antartica guests will get closer than ever to 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.
Because the real penguins must stay in a habitat with temperatures in the low 30s, this will be the coldest theme park attraction in the world, according to the attraction’s designers.
The Antarctica – Empire of the Penguin attraction will include the ride, the penguin habitat gift shop and a restaurant. The exact opening date hasn’t been set yet, but as soon as we find out, we’ll let you know.
