New Worlds on the Horizon for Sea World Orlando


Sea World Orlando will be making a huge announcement on November 8th about things to come at the park for the future. Construction walls have already gone up already up around some of the park in preparation for the new projects. But what exactly is happening?

The only definite clue to go by comes from the official announcement. Three separate islands, each with a different theme and motif. This is possibly pointing to three new attractions.
Recently the Orlando Sentinel uncovered plans for three new attractions coming to the park.
Those plans are:

  • Renovation of the Manatee rehabilitation area to include a new theater and an overall Florida experience that revolves around the Documentary “Turtle” released earlier this year by the newly formed “SeaWorld films”
  • A freshwater island exhibit at Discovery Cove who earlier this year opened a complete revamp of the the saltwater exhibit. Grand Reef opened to rave reviews, and includes an upcharge attraction-SeaVenture that allows guests to walk along the bottom of the aquarium. The new attraction will possibly be the first exhibit that may not feature a way for guests to swim, instead having them interact with different animals and perhaps play along side them in their habitat (zip line?)
  • Finally, the Penguin Encounter exhibit at SeaWorld Orlando is to get a make over. Huge sculpted ice walls have been spotted in fields outside the park. The attraction is rumored to be a dark ride, with loads of interactive elements that tie in the live animals much like Manta and Cheetah Hunt at Busch Gardens Tampa does. The area is also said to be getting a few interactive play areas as well.
The announcement happens Tuesday November 8th, 2011.  We will be at the announcement so make sure to follow us on Twitter, and Facebook for all the latest information.
