Is Antarctica: Empire of the Penguin one of the most interesting attractions ? and guys? of SeaWorld!
On this post
This area became known for the high investment by the park, so that everything was perfect.
As a result, we can observe a very characteristic place that makes you believe you are in Antarctica.
The area's walls imitate ice, as well as the floor and decoration. To complete, the temperature is also lower than the rest of the park.
As the protagonists of the region are the penguins, they could not be left out. For you to immerse yourself in the life of these animals, Sea World has this attraction.
characteristicçthose of Antarctica: Empire of the Penguin
The Antarctica: Empire of the Penguin works as a presentation, given by the little penguin Puck. Through it, you can learn a little more about penguins and their lifestyle.
The ride is carried out using a cart and the attraction has two speeds: mild and wild. It fits 8 people, who must be able to sit alone.
Mild mode is suitable for young children, the elderly or people who cannot make sudden movements. However, despite this, infants (who cannot sit up by themselves) cannot attend this attraction.
On the other hand, the wild has some more "sudden" movements, but by no means radical. In short, the cart turns and walks, accompanying Puck on his journey. For a person to opt for this mode, they must measure above 1.22 meters.
Each year, Sea World is innovating its attractions with a view to promoting awareness of marine animals, not just their exhibit.
In this sense, this attraction, like others, also has an educational area, especially for children.
There, you and the children in your group will be able to compare their heights with 17 species of penguins.
In addition, there are also interactive screens with interesting information about these animals.
The staff working at Sea World also talk to visitors in order to raise awareness of the importance of penguins.
What is the Antarctica: Empire of the Penguin queue like?
Right at the beginning, in a projection room, you already know Puck. He is a very friendly penguin and will be your guide in the attraction.
In this place, you can already feel the temperature much colder. That's a relief for the hot Orlando days!
It is also in the queue that you choose between mild and wild modes. My recommendation is: if you don't have any movement restrictions, go wild.
Antarctica: Empire of the Penguin features the Quick Queue, the Sea World queue jumper. However, as it is a somewhat stationary attraction, I prefer not to use it.
Although the attraction queue can reach a good time, the environment is very pleasant, due to the temperature.
What is Antarctica: Empire of the Penguin like?
The ride begins with Puck guiding you through the glaciers of Antarctica. Along the way, you will be able to observe beautiful environments that represent the lights of the continent.
You can even see a seal trying to hunt Puck in the projection. Luckily, he managed to escape unharmed!
A little further on, you will be able to see how penguins are family-friendly animals. Including Antarctica: Empire of the Penguin is an attraction that can bring your whole family together.
At the end, the glass of the attraction, which was previously frosted, lights up! In this way, you will be able to observe an environment full of penguins. They swim and pose for photos in a very cute way!
Finally, when you leave the cart, you will be in front of a tank where there will also be penguins.
At that moment, get ready to take beautiful pictures with the animals. I can assure you that they are very friendly and sometimes they even pose!
