Infinity Falls River Rapids Coming to SeaWorld Orlando in 2018


Yesterday morning, SeaWorld Orlando unveiled its latest world-class attraction, Infinity Falls, that will officially debut summer 2018. Thrilling rapids will roar through the brand new rainforest river experience, while adventure-seeking guests plunge down a 40-foot drop, the world’s tallest drop for a river rapids ride. The attraction will also feature a vertical lift. “We are constantly looking at new ways to amaze our guests – Infinity Falls will do that, and more,” said Jim Dean, President of SeaWorld Orlando Parks.


“From the excitement of the thrilling rapids, to the unique vertical lift element, it'll be an adventure that appeals to the entire family. Infinity Falls continues our commitment to investing in our park, and developing new ways to entertain and inspire our guests with meaningful, fun-filled vacations.”


To bring Infinity Falls to life, designers were inspired by the rainforests of South America and the flowing rivers found within. Each raft will twist and turn through a lush jungle environment as guests experience the feel of exhilarating Class IV rapids. A unique vertical elevator will lift each raft for a dramatic launch into the river, 40 feet below.

“Water makes up more than 70% of our planet,” said Brian Morrow, Vice President of Theme Park Design Experience. “We developed Infinity Falls to tell new stories that showcase the beauty and sheer power of water and the amazing wildlife that lives in it. The result is a new river rapids adventure for our guests to explore, and actively help freshwater ecosystems in a way that only SeaWorld can bring to life.”

Infinity Falls will be the centerpiece of a newly themed surrounding area, fully immersing guests in a rainforest canopy. After riding the rapids, the entire family can explore the village and take part in interactive experiences that combine play with education to create a positive impact on freshwater ecosystems. SeaWorld’s Animal Ambassadors will also provide up-close encounters with animals native to South America.

The addition of Infinity Falls is the perfect addition to SeaWorld’s ever-growing ride portfolio. From the roller coaster thrills of Mako, Manta, and Kraken to the water flume fun of Journey to Atlantis, Infinity Falls will soon join the park’s famed attractions as a must-do experience in Orlando.

    1. Not sure, but I'll bet to the right of the waterfront. There's the trail back there that goes to the old water ski Arena and there's lots of room back there

  8. A water ride in Florida is always good and this one is WAY better the river rapids at Animal Kingdom. Will see if it's better than the one at Islands of Adventure.

    1. Yes, I agree! Pluto's Barges at IOA is hard to beat, but this just might do it.

  9. I love the rapids rides and this looks to be really good one. If they're claiming it's going to be even steeper than Grizzly Rapids at California Adventure then this should be a winner.

    Just saying...........
