The grand opening of a new thrill ride at SeaWorld Orlando has been set for Thursday.

Set against a rainforest backdrop, Infinity Falls features roaring rapids, fountains and a record-setting 40ft waterfall drop.

Holidaymakers will be able to take on the role of a conservationist on a journey through the rainforest and learn about the importance of freshwater conservation through interactive games and stories throughout the ride.

SeaWorld Orlando Parks president Mark Pauls said: “From the excitement of the thrilling rapids to the unique vertical lift element, Infinity Falls is an adventure that appeals to the entire family.”

Infinity Falls joins roller coasters Mako, Manta and Kraken together with water flume ride Journey to Atlantis.
