After lots of speculation, SeaWorld Orlando has announced its new-for-2018 attraction: an Intamin water rapids ride named Infinity Falls.
Infinity Falls will be the tallest rapids ride in the world, with a drop height of 40 ft. The ride will also feature an elevator that will lift riders up vertically to the top of the drop.
In addition to a large drop, the rapids will also have some impressive theming. According to SeaWorld, “designers were inspired by the rainforests of South America and the rivers within”. The ride will be part of a new area of the Orlando park, which will also be themed to a rainforest in South America.
SeaWorld really seems to be appealing to people of all ages with this attraction. Adding a rapids ride will really appeal to the family market, even if it does have a tall height and large drop. It will certainly be interesting to see how the new ride is received, and how it will compare to other rides like Kali River Rapids at Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Could SeaWorld have their hands on the best rapids ride in the world? Only time will tell.
Infinity Falls is set to open in Summer 2018 at SeaWorld Orlando. More concept art is shown below.
