Empire of the Penguins

Sea world Orlando's biggest expansion ever is under way, and we still have very little details on the newest attraction that I am so excited to finally open. What we do know that it is a "State of the Future" ride and also, you can get up closer than ever and walk alongside the massive live colony. They are including the underwater viewing, which is the only thing SW had in the last Penguin encounter exhibit (which has since been tore down). This big new exhibit/ride is the coldest attraction the park will offer, knowing the continent of Antarctica is around -129 degrees F it is sure to be freezing. With the new interactive ride technologies that give you a different experience every time, this is sure to be a must see when it does open in spring 2013.

SeaWorld is calling this a family adventure ride so assuming it will be for young and older park visitors. This ride will allow riders to see the mystery and wonder of life through the eyes of some very special penguins. Some of the species that we will get to see here will be the Ade-lies, King, Gentoo’s, and Rock hoppers. Around 89% of the continent of Antarctica is covered in ice; it is the coldest, driest, and windiest of them all on earth.

Since demolishing the older Penguin Exhibit, they have added a penguin cam to keep us enticed till the opening next year. They are slowly revealing the icy secrets along the way!
