SeaWorld shows off its new Antarctica ride in a video preview
In my previous piece on Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom
, I mention the increased competition Disney faces from Universal Orlando. Well, let's not forget that SeaWorld Orlando's throwing down, too.
The park just released its first "webisode" preview of its largest attraction in its history, Antarctica - Empire of the Penguin reviews, which will open next spring.
SeaWorld Creative Director Brian Morrow talks about the ride, its new animal habitat and shares some looks at the construction site.
What do you think? Is this enough to convince you to see SeaWorld next year?
Looks good, but I'm not as excited for it as Seven Dwarfs or Transformers.
It definitely seems like a good exhibit. I hope the ride itself has some spectacular special effects to make it more interesting. It should have a narrative and not be merely a travel through a zoo. Disney's New Fantasyland is turning into a boozy joke. No reason to extend my trip to Disney. Better to allocate more time to SeaWorld and Universal.
I feel like seaworld has such a huge potential. San Diego's is mediocre but then I visited bush gardens and sea world Orlando and wow what a difference! They do such a good job at displaying animals and mixing it up with great rides. Bush gardens Tampa was one of the best theme park experiences I've ever had. Clearly with Antarctica they're taking it to the next level. They've mastered great roller coasters and now they're getting into immersive theming, Disney's territory. But I say take it to Disney because Disney drew first blood by building animal kingdom and MGM studios, which were essentially direct attacks to universal and sea world Parks so I think its great that they're fighting back and winning to some degree.
I'm glad this is a ride the whole family can enjoy and will be new every time you ride it (or at least a bit different.
Thinking "Harry Penquin" (trade mark) is going to be great addition.
