When you visit SeaWorld Orlando in 2018 be ready to journey down Infinity Falls a river rapids that will leave you breathless as you plunge down a 40-foot drop. The new ride is a centerpiece of whole new area that will immerse guest into the rainforest canopy.

The park is actively expanding its roller coaster attractions as it continues to battle against Disney World and Universal Orlando. 

Infinity Falls will take the guest on a river ride through a lost jungle, winding you around fountains and waterfalls before sending you down a 40-foot chute of water as you explore the remains of an ancient civilization. The ride is inspired by the jungles and civilizations of the lush jungles of South America.

 

“Water makes up more than 70% of our planet,” said 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 ride will culminate in the guests being able to explore the newly built area and take part in interactive activities to learn about freshwater ecosystems.

“We are constantly looking at new ways to amaze our guests – Infinity Falls will do that, and more,” said Jim Dean, president of SeaWorld Orlando Parks, in a statement. “From the excitement of the thrilling rapids, to the unique vertical lift element, it will be an adventure that appeals to the entire family.
