SeaWorld Orlando was always a favorite when my kids were young. My son was always fascinated by the beautiful and graceful creatures and he would giggle uncontrollably at the antics all around him. I know there always seems to be some sort of controversy when it comes to SeaWorld but in reality SeaWorld does so much good that never makes the news. They do it every day. The number of rescued and rehabilitated creatures that SeaWorld cares for is large. The SeaWorld rescue team has helped more than 31,000 animals in need. The number of creatures successfully returned to the ocean is unbelievable. I personally can’t wait to see all the new things coming to SeaWorld Orlando in 2018.
SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment believes in inspiring guests to protect animals and the wild wonders of our world. The company is one of the world’s foremost zoological organizations and a global leader in animal welfare, behavioral training, husbandry and veterinary care. The company collectively cares for what it believes is one of the largest zoological collections in the world and has helped lead advances in the care of animals.
SeaWorld Orlando revealed the custom rafts for its new Infinity Falls river rapids attraction due to open in the summer 2018. The 8-passenger raft features custom theming and décor resembling supplies found on real white-water rafting expeditions. The circular raft design puts riders face-to-face and allows friends and family to enjoy this exhilarating attraction together.
Aboard the raft, riders will embark on an adventure through a lush rainforest environment inspired by some of the world’s most incredible freshwater ecosystems. The new attraction will feature the world’s tallest drop on a river raft ride and allow visitors to experience the feel of exhilarating rapids. The ride will also feature an innovative elevator lift designed to transport the rafts to the top of the ride’s 40-foot drop.
Infinity Falls will be the first attraction at SeaWorld to tell a story beyond the ocean and share a message of water conservation through the adventure of a white-water river expedition. This is just one example of the park’s new “Park to Planet” initiative, a mission to help guests understand some of the challenges facing the planet and inspiring them to help.
The new attraction will be the centerpiece of a newly themed area designed to resemble the base-camp of explorers and scientists. After riding Infinity Falls, the entire family can explore the village and take part in interactive experiences that combine play with education to create a positive impact on freshwater ecosystems, reinforcing “Park to Planet” in real time. SeaWorld’s Animal Ambassadors will also provide up-close encounters with animals native to South America.
