SeaWorld's Brian Morrow talks about Antarctica - Empire of the Penguin
Written by Robert Niles
ORLANDO - SeaWorld Orlando unveiled its ride vehicle for the upcoming Antarctica - Empire of the Penguin ride this morning at the annual IAAPA Attractions Expo.Tweet
After the reveal, SeaWorld's Creative Director, Brian Morrow, spoke with me about what visitors can expect on the ride, which will open next spring. It's a trackless motion simulator ride, which Morrow called the world's first of its kind.
Highlights? Morrow said SeaWorld's designed the ride as family friendly. He wouldn't announce the height restriction just yet, but he said that it would be "very low" and that families could select the intensity of their ride, whether mild or intense.
Morrow also said vehicles would take different ride paths through the attraction, making it a different experience on subsequent rides.
SeaWorld Orlando park president Terry Prather wouldn't put a price tag on the new attraction, but said that it was the largest single attraction investment in the company's history.
Update: Here's the link to SeaWorld's official Antarctica page.
