This summer the biggest thing coming to Central Florida is Antarctica: Empire of the Penguin at SeaWorld Orlando. Antarctica is what they are calling a Mega Expansion to the theme park, the largest addition the park has ever done. In fact, SeaWorld is so excited about the new addition that they have been traveling around the country promoting its opening in every major city! The design of this expansion is so in depth and immersive that the new section of the park is being called a realm. With an all new adventure, a restaurant and more interactive experiences this is going to be the biggest thing to hit Orlando since New Fantasyland and the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. The opening date for this great attraction is May 24th, so don’t miss it!
The new attraction will be visible from most of the park as the thirty five foot tall rock formation of a mother penguin and its chick peeks its head above the towering ice that surrounds the new expansion. As you step through one of the two entry ways to the realm you will feel like you have been transported to Antarctica itself. With massive ice shelves surrounding you, dripping icicles and even a floor that resembles melting ice you will be completely submerged in this artificial environment. In the past the closest you could get to penguins was from behind a thick glass. Now you will be able to step into their freezing world and walk among them.
With so much more to see and do even seasoned park goers will find this to be a refreshing experience. Get read May 24th for this exciting new adventure to open!
