SeaWorld Orlando reveals theme song for new Antarctica attraction
Written by Robert Niles
SeaWorld Orlando has provided a sneak peek at the theme song for Antarctica: Empire of the Penguin, the park's upcoming multi-million-dollar dark ride and penguin encounter.
The singer's former American Idol finalist Lauren Alaina, and the style is Idol pop (country flavor). Antarctica is SeaWorld's largest single capital investment in company history, according to CEO Jim Atchison, and its nice to see that SeaWorld's creative team is including original music in the mix, along with a high-tech variable ride system, film and physical effects, as well as an up-close animal encounter. Here's more about the ride, from the IAAPA theme park industry show last fall:
Antarctica opens to the public on May 24, and we'll be there for a media preview on May 23, as well as talking again with SeaWorld creative director Brian Morrow about the ride. So keep reading Theme Park Insider for more on Antarctica.
