SeaWorld Orlando has always been home to some of the most amazing animal exhibits, but those have been joined over the past few years with some amazing attractions. In early October, SeaWorld took their attractions to an all new height in the form of Infinity Falls, the tallest river rapids attraction in the world.
Infinity Falls joins an impressive line up of attractions including Mako, Orlando’s tallest and fastest coaster, and surprisingly it is the first river raft ride for the park. This family-friendly attraction features eight-passenger rafts features dynamic drops and turns, interactive water elements, and an innovative vertical lift designed to transport the rafts to the top of the ride’s 40-foot drop in just over five seconds.
As with most SeaWorld attractions, Infinity Falls features an animal showcase spot with some flamingos greeting rafts as they leave the load station, which is also the last spot you will enjoy being dry.
Along the way to the 40-foot drop finale, you will get soaked — if not from the rapids or water runoff then from the drop ramp the interactive water cannons that allow guests along the walkway to surprise the unsuspecting guests along the waterway. This is not one of those attractions where the “you may get wet” sign is a warning, it is more of a spoiler.
Of course, the highlight of the attraction is the quick lift trip to the top of the 40-foot tall tower followed by the drop that will make sure that last dry spot is taken care of.
Visit SeaWorld Orlando for park hours, to purchase tickets, or take advantage of limited time annual-pass savings to experience all this beautiful park has to offer.
