Let the Countdown Begin - SeaWorld Orlando’s Antarctica: Empire of the Penguin Opens Tomorrow, May 24, 2013Animal encounter meets all new ride, SeaWorld Orlando’s highly anticipated “Antarctica: Empire of the Penguin”, the park’s largest expansion in history, opens tomorrow. Embark on an all-family adventure to the South Pole and experience Antarctica through the eyes of the attraction’s young hero, Puck, a gentoo penguin. With first-of-its-kind trackless ride vehicles, the cars are mobile simulators allowing guests to become one with the story line. And also featuring “Antarctica: One World, One Family”, a theme song performed by award-wining country music artist, Lauren Alaina, of American Idol fame.
The Opening Ceremony begins at 8:45am.
Discover Antarctica. In addition to the new ride and close-up animal connection, Antarctica: Empire of the Penguin, the Antarctica section will include:
Glacial Collections – a penguin themed gift shop also featuring a “Cup That Cares” customizable, refillable, souvenir penguin cup. The cup calculates the CO2 you save from the planet when refilled at the nearby beverage station with $1 of proceeds going to the SeaWorld and Busch Gardens Conservation Fund.
South Pole Beverages – a Coca-Cola Freestyle station with custom brand new flavor, South Pole Chill, available exclusively in Antarctica at the park.
Expedition Café – a “marketplace style mess hall” with American, Asian, and Italian cuisine together with Grab-and Go items.
