SeaWorld reveals plans for Antarctica

SeaWorld Orlando has revealed more details of its largest-ever new attraction, Antarctica – Empire of the Penguin.

Scheduled to open in 2013, this first-of-its-kind family boat ride will utilise new technology to provide an experience that can change from visit to visit. Guess in each eight-seater car will be able to choose the level of thrill they experience on the ride, with a young Gentoo penguin as their guide.

SeaWorld say that by immersing guests in the penguin’s environment, Antarctica – Empire of the Penguin will be the coldest theme park attraction in the world. The footprint for the new attraction is the biggest of any at a SeaWorld or Busch Gardens park.

Considered as a new area of the Orlando park, rather than a single ride, Antarctica will also include the penguin habitat, a gift shop and restaurant.
