SeaWorld Orlando is Ready to Rush the Rapids with Infinity Falls
World’s Tallest River Rapid Drop Coming Summer 2018
ORLANDO, Fla. (April 13, 2017) –SeaWorld Orlando announces its latest world-class attraction, Infinity Falls, to debut summer 2018. Thrilling rapids will roar through the brand new rainforest river experience, while adventure-seeking guests plunge down the world’s tallest river rapid drop.
“We are constantly looking at new ways to amaze our guests - Infinity Falls will do that, and more,” said Jim Dean, President of SeaWorld Orlando Parks. “From the excitement of the thrilling rapids, to the unique vertical lift element, it will be an adventure that appeals to the entire family. Infinity Falls continues our commitment to investing in our park, and developing new ways to entertain and inspire our guests with meaningful, fun-filled vacations.”
To bring Infinity Falls to life, designers were inspired by the rainforests of South America and the flowing rivers found within. Each raft will twist and turn through a lush jungle environment as guests experience the feel of exhilarating Class IV rapids. A unique vertical elevator will lift each raft for a dramatic launch into the river, 40 feet below.
“Water makes up more than 70% of our planet,” said Brian Morrow, Vice President of Theme Park Design Experience. “We developed Infinity Falls to tell new stories that showcase the beauty and sheer power of water and the amazing wildlife that lives in it. The result is a new river rapids adventure for our guests to explore, and actively help freshwater ecosystems in a way that only SeaWorld can bring to life.”
The addition of Infinity Falls is the perfect addition to SeaWorld’s ever-growing ride portfolio. From the roller coaster thrills of Mako, Manta and Kraken to the water flume fun of Journey to Atlantis, Infinity Falls will soon join the park’s famed attractions as a must-do experience in Orlando.
Infinity Falls will be the centerpiece of a newly themed surrounding area, fully immersing guests in a rainforest canopy. After riding the rapids on Infinity Falls, the entire family 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.
Infinity Falls will open at SeaWorld Orlando in summer 2018.

Tonight we're at SeaWorld Orlando for the Christmas Celebration!
First stop is to visit Rudolph's Christmastown.
Rudolph and Clarice are great and all... but the line is long and I want to meet Bumble!
Yes! I got a Bumble hug! Love this new addition to SeaWorld Christmas this year!
The Rudolph and friends area for the SeaWorld Christmas Celebration is super cute.
Now on to the food and drinks! I highly recommend the sampler packages, if you want to try a little bit of everything!
They have an awesome selection of beer! I can't get everything tonight so I'm pretty sure I'll be getting a sampler next time too
There is a good amount of food offered for the celebration SeaWorld. I opted for the poutine and why not, more beer.
You can enjoy the Sea of Trees and holiday entertainment next to the fire @SeaWorld Christmas Celebration.
Dessert time! The popular s'mores are back, this time in a cone. Messy, but delicious!
If ice skating shows are your thing, Winter Wonderland on Ice is one of the best around!
Santa, sandwiches and drinks? The Terrace has what you want!
Didn't catch O Wondrous Night tonight but have in the past, and it's an excellent, original show.
Walk on night rides for Mako, amazing! And it's in the 50s tonight in Orlando, makes for a great ride!
The Christmas lights along the Waterfront area are simply beautiful.
The holiday village with all of the food, drinks, shopping and entertainment is always my favorite part of SeaWorld at Christmas.
We'll close out the night with Shamu Christmas Miracles.
Shamu is cool but the star of Shamu Christmas Miracles is the gospel singer and sax player.
Snowflakes on the waterfront as we head out of the park.
Christmas Celebration at SeaWorld Orlando runs weekends in Dec. We'll be back here tomorrow morning for the Reindeer Run 5k!
Good morning! We are back at SeaWorld for the Reindeer Run 5k!
Around 4000 runners are ready to run a 5k through SeaWorld for the annual Reindeer Run!
