Infinity Falls – SeaWorld Orlando’s All New Record Breaking Water Raft Ride

Later this summer, SeaWorld Orlando will open its brand new water ride, Infinity Falls. This family raft ride, similar to that of Kali River Rapids in Disney’s Animal Kingdom or Popeye and Bluto’s Bilge Rat Barges at Universal’s Islands of Adventure, will feature new innovations and fun for the whole family. We were invited to SeaWorld Orlando to get a “hard hat tour” of the construction site as well as learn new details on what will come.

During a quick presentation prior to touring the site, we learned some specifications to the ride.

  • The minimum height requirement to experience Infinity Falls is 42″
  • The vehicles will seat 8 people per raft
  • The tallest drop is 40 feet which is record breaking for a water raft ride
  • The ride capacity will be around 1025 guests per hour (which to a theme park operations man like myself, is kind of low.)

We finally went out to the construction site to explore what progression has been made on the attraction. The ride site is large in scope and the detail going into this attraction is unlike anything SeaWorld has done.

The rock work you’ll notice throughout the experience is breathtaking and the vibrant colors bring out the beauty of the site. We learned that they will be using fresh water to create a clear blue color instead of filtered water to bring out the conservation of water message that SeaWorld is promoting.

The ride is very unique with its vertical lift hill to bring guests up to the record setting drop of 40 feet. The attraction seems to have a long way to go before the first guests ride, however I am confident that this will be one of the most unique water attractions in the Central Florida theme parks.
