SeaWorld Orlando has revealed the first of 15 custom rafts for its new Infinity Falls river rapids attraction, which is opening next summer.
The circular eight-passenger rafts are designed with equipment used in real white-water rafting.
Riders will travel through a rainforest environment and the new attraction will feature the world’s tallest drop on a river raft ride – at 40 feet.
Infinity Falls will be the first attraction at SeaWorld to tell a story beyond the ocean and share a message of water conservation, which is part of the park’s ‘Park to Planet’ initiative, a mission to help guests understand some of the challenges facing the planet and inspiring them to help.
The new attraction will be the centerpiece of a newly-themed area designed to resemble the basecamp of explorers and scientists. After riding Infinity Falls, families can explore the village and take part in interactive experiences that combine play with education to create a positive impact on freshwater ecosystems.
SeaWorld’s Animal Ambassadors will also provide up-close encounters with animals native to South America.
