Hey Guys!!! Come take a trip with me to Seaworld Orlando To check out all the new and exciting things they plan for 2018 and beyond!

I headed into Seaworld Orlando to grab some ride videos, but also to give you guys and update on their two new rides!

Well really only one new ride and a new re-theme of shamu’s happy harbor.

Anyone else just have to get the “Manta” picture when they walk in?

I headed into Seaworld Orlando to grab some ride videos, but also to give you guys and update on their two new rides!

Well really only one new ride and a new re-theme of shamu’s happy harbor. Infinity falls advertised to be open by summer 2018, but by the looks of it isn’t even close to being there.. But before we get to those, lets go check out the park!

They have some kind of gift shop set up that blocks the whole entrance way. It is super annoying and they have had it up for almost 6 months now. If you have been to the Orlando park recently you’ll understand what Im saying. Right after the gift shop its back to normal where guests see the entry sign and can take photos with their favorite whale. Lets get on the parks flying coaster, Manta!

How can you not love this entrance??

And also look at all of the happy riders enjoying this amazing coaster.

Although Seaworld Orlando only has 4 rollercoasters( 5 if you count Journey to Atlantis ) each one of the attractions they have are outstanding.

Manta is Florida’s only flying rollercoaster and takes guests through 4 inversions. One of these inversions in the pretzel loop; the pretzel loop is said to have some of the most intense forces on any rollercoaster inversion.

The people in the last row know whats about to happen, lol.

You can see Manta’s layout great from above!

All the photos I took with this view are taken on the sky tower. I use a special lens filter to be able to take photos through the glass without a reflection.

After getting 2 laps on Manta I headed for the parks #1 attraction; Mako.

Oh and can you tell the wait times I had this day?

 

This area is the section walking from the sky tower area back to the mako and shark section of the park. You can see in the left hand side of the picture some of the seven seas wood and wine festival tents still up.

This angle of Mako was actually captured from the line of the sky tower. Showing Mako has some nice curves and isn’t all just airtime!

Mako is honestly one of the best B&M hyper coasters out there. I have been on most of the hyper coasters they have made across the world, and haven’t found one filled with this much airtime. The layout is simple, but packs a major punch. If you are lucky enough to get a ride without the trims on it will defiantly make it into your top 20 coasters list. I have been getting a lot of rides without the trims on and OMFG it hauls ! Like it hauls to the point every seat has great airtime and even some strong ejector in certain seats.

Just look at this impressive skyline of Mako and Kraken.

 

Anyways, I didn’t come to the park this time for rides. I came to get on the sky tower with my ¬†zoom lens and get updates of the new attraction coming in summer 2018!

So, here are some high in the sky photos of the progress on Infinity Falls:

 

Some shots are a tad blurry. My 150-600mm lens with a two time converter would appear blurry anytime shot though glass. ( Even with proper filers ) However the really clear ones are from a different G-master lens and came out crystal clear. Here we can see a concrete water retention area for the new attraction being constructed.

Thats pretty much all to look at regarding Infinity falls. We will keep you updated on when this attraction will actually open, because an early summer opening date seems a little hard to achieve with the progress of construction.

The ride looks very long with the small footprint it takes up, and the drop looks to be kind of like that of the River Rafting ride at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.

I’m excited for this ride and think it is a much needed and awesome addition to the park’s lineup of attractions.

 

 

Here is an update on the Electric Ocean Theatre !

Lights have been almost finished being installed and the top half of the theatre has been given an overlay with neon sea creatures.

This is an awesome event and if you have an annual pass I would highly recommend coming out to it!

 

And here is what the happy harbor is looking like. No real progress on the Sesame Street land re-theme to open in 2018.

I hope they paint the kids coaster and give it some new trains. That whole area of the park always seems left out and forgotten to me, and Im glad to see if getting some much needed TLC.

 

Thanks for following along on my trip to Seaworld. I’ll have more media relating to the two new attractions soon as more information is given out.

Keep checking back every week for new videos, blogs, and more all at Theme Park HD!!!!
