SeaWorld Orlando has finally shifted from dropping tantalizing hints to exciting new details for its new “Antarctica: Empire of the Penguin” exhibit with a full reveal of the ride and its new, impressive vehicles. Starring hundreds of live penguins, the ride will feature limited interaction between visitors and the birds, an exciting concept for young and old.
For the past few months, SeaWorld Orlando has been dropping hints about its upcoming Antarctica: Empire of the Penguin exhibit. Photographs of the construction site taken last month by the Orlando Sentinel showed little more than something "big and boxy," but early promises revealed that the site would include penguins, below-freezing temperatures, and technology that had not been used before.
Well now we have more of an idea of what SeaWorld has planned. At last week's International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions Expo in Orlando, the park drew back the icy curtain to reveal quite a bit more about the exhibit.
