A boat ride through roaring rapids culminating in a plunge over the world’s tallest river drop promises to add new thrills for visitors to SeaWorld Orlando in summer 2018 with the opening of Infinity Falls, the theme park’s latest attraction.
Inspired by the waterfalls and rivers of South America, Infinity Falls will be the centerpiece of a newly themed surrounding area that immerses guests in a rainforest canopy and native village, and offering interactive experiences that combine play with education designed to create a positive impact on freshwater ecosystems. SeaWorld’s Animal Ambassadors will also provide up-close encounters with animals native to South America.
The Infinity Falls ride will twist and turn through a lush jungle environment, negotiating Class IV rapids before a unique vertical elevator lifts each raft for a dramatic launch into the river, 40 feet below.
“Water makes up more than 70% of our planet,” says Brian Morrow, Vice President of Theme Park Design Experience. “We developed Infinity Falls to tell new stories that showcase the beauty and sheer power of water and the amazing wildlife that lives in it. The result is a new river rapids adventure for our guests to explore, and actively help freshwater ecosystems in a way that only SeaWorld can bring to life.”
