SeaWorld Orlando Announces the Future : Antarctica – Empire of the Penguin

SeaWorld Antartica Orlando Florida

New attractions sure to top Orlando’s “must-see” list for 2012 and 2013

  • SeaWorld Orlando announces its 2012 and 2013 new attractions
  • New experience also opening at Discovery Cove in 2012

ORLANDO, Fla. — With three astounding new attractions featuring all-new ways to connect guests to the mysteries of the sea, SeaWorld Orlando and Discovery Cove are once again sure to top the “must-see” list for upcoming Orlando vacations.

SeaWorld designers just announced new experiences to open in 2012 at SeaWorld Orlando and Discovery Cove, and released a few details of a massive expansion set to debut at SeaWorld in 2013. Discovery Cove is a swim-with-dolphins resort across the street from SeaWorld in Orlando.

The new attractions represent the biggest attraction expansions in the history of SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment, the parks’ parent company.

SeaWorld antartica pinguin

Antarctica – Empire of the Penguin is SeaWorld Orlando’s single biggest attraction expansion ever.  What’s part of this huge undertaking?

It’s not only where SeaWorld will be taking guests in 2013 – to the bottom of the world, Antarctica – it’s also how SeaWorld takes guests there and what animals will be encountered during the journey.

Details are few – the attraction is as mysterious as the continent – but here are a few

icebergs of information.

  •  For years, SeaWorld Orlando has taken guests on priceless journeys of adventure. In each case, the park opens a window to the amazing underwater world guests can’t experience on their own.
  • Antarctica – the continent – is largely unexplored. The land locked under 9,000 feet of ice is not owned or claimed by any one country. The weather is always changing and more than always harsh. Much of the water surrounding the continent is just above freezing.  Yet this land at the bottom of the world is home to some of the most amazing animals in the world. Antarctica is the empire of the penguin.

What makes SeaWorld’s Antarctica so unique?

  • Guests will be surrounded by the sights, sounds and awesome encounters found in this frozen land, embarking on a one-of-a-kind ride and an incredible family adventure.

They’ll experience the mystery and wonder of Antarctic life on the ice through the eyes of a penguin, sensing the beauty and drama of their sometimes-dangerous habitat. SeaWorld’s Antarctica combines closer-then-ever animal connections with state-of-the-art interactive ride technologies for adventures that are different each time.

Turtle Oasis Orlando Florida


While creating TurtleTrek (opening at SeaWorld Orlando in spring 2012), designers stayed true to SeaWorld’s unique blend of nose-to-nose animal encounters and state-of-the art entertainment.

Guests first visit two massive naturalistic habitats, one filled with hundreds of freshwater fish and gentle manatees, the other home to more than 1,500 saltwater fish and more than a dozen sea turtles.  Many of the manatees and sea turtles were rescued by the park’s animal team.  Since SeaWorld Orlando’s rescue programs began, the team has cared for and returned to the wild nearly 240 manatees and more than 1,200 sea turtles.

Freshwater Oasis

Just across the street from SeaWorld Orlando is Discovery Cove, a limited-admission, all-inclusive tropical resort where guests swim with dolphins, hand-feed tropical birds in a free-flight aviary, snorkel among thousands of colorful fish and rays and relax on pristine beaches.

Opening at Discovery Cove in spring 2012 is Freshwater Oasis, an all-new attraction featuring swimming and wading adventures and face-to-face encounters with playful otters and curious marmosets.
