I'm not a big fan of wet rides in general, but I would definitely bring sandals, and plan on riding this the next time I go to SWO! Looks great!

How dare you. Trolls and oil rigs made for one of the most cohesive storylines any attraction has ever seen. :lol:


I actually have memories of enjoying Maelstrom, but that WAS back in 2001 the last time I rode it! :lol: My standards for entertaining rides were a little lower then!

Went to the Infinity Falls media event this morning. Here's the video we produced....



SeaWorld also announced a new for 2019 slide at Aquatica:

Here's the list of rides in the new Sesame Street area coming in 2019:
Earlier this year, SeaWorld announced the groundbreaking news that Sesame Street at SeaWorld Orlando is coming in Spring of 2019. Guests will be able to take a walk down Sesame Street for the very first time, connecting families to all of the fun, laughter and learning of the world famous street. In addition a daily parade, play areas and opportunities to mingle with Sesame Street characters, SeaWorld announced today that this area will feature six colorful, themed rides, including Elmo’s Choo Choo Train, Cookie Drop, Abby’s Flower Tower, Super Grover’s Box Car Derby, Big Bird’s Twirl ‘n’ Whirl and Slimey’s Slider.

And a brand new Annual Pass program that seems similar to what other chains like Six Flags is doing:

Should be interesting to see how that new annual pass program works out for them!

^ Great photo!!!

I loved the video! "My panties haven't been soiled yet." :lmao: :lmao: :lmao:

Looks like a solid addition to the park, and will be awesome on those hot Florida days... Which is basically every day.

Great video! Infinity Falls has a couple of things that make it different from your run of the mill local rapids ride. Looks like a lot of fun, and I'm sure people will appreciate a new way to cool off in Orlando.

Great coverage! Infinity Falls looks awesome. I'm looking forward to trying it the next time I'm at the park.

Now that Infinity Falls exists, I really have no reason to turn down the front row of Journey to Atlantis now. :lol:

Got to give Infinity Falls a spin myself yesterday. It's wicked fun. Much more aggressive than Kali River Rapids.

Infinity Falls looks amazing! I just missed the soft opening as I was at the park last Monday the 24th, but I'm excited to ride it next time I'm in Orlando!
