Welcome to the second part of our new SeaWorld Orlando photo-report. Don't forget to also check out PART 1 of this update by clicking on this link to find more pictures.
In the previous part, we took a quick look around the entrance of the park, the Port of Entry, and the Waterfront district. We will now continue to explore this beautiful theme park by entering Antarctica, the Sea of Mystery, Key West, and more. As you'll notice, there's still a lot to see around the various themed areas of SeaWorld Orlando.


Antarctica will be our next stop:

The area seemed to be very quiet. Too quiet, in fact:

These temporary stanchions are quite ugly:

Journey to Atlantis recently reopened after a major refurbishment that included a "new" soundtrack (which was used in the former "A'Lure " show), and less special effects to make it more kid-friendly:

The exterior of the ride still needs some attention:

Overall, this ride is still one of the most exciting water rides in Orlando. It has so much potential...

I'm excited for both the upcoming Kraken: Unleashed and Infinity Falls. I do feel though instead of Kraken: Unleashed, I think Sea World would've directed their attention at Wild Arctic which is crying out for an update. The pavilion(minus the ride) is still actually fine and doesn't need to really be touched much, it's really just the ride that needs a new lease on life with an updated movie to go along with the simulation and perhaps adding the 3-D effect just like Disney did with Star Tours.

Also very excited for both new rides. I'm sure sea world bosses know that wild arctic is an issue but I think they probably have bigger plans for this area. Hopefully they'll do something completely new but i guess they can only do one thing at a time. Can't deny that they are investing a lot in constantly enhancing guests experiences unlike a certain competitor...

I think they should remove the simulator from Wild Artic and replace it with a dark ride. It would cost more money and they would have to redo the front part of the building, but it would be worth it. You could ride in jeeps threw the artic.

Not excited for any of it. SeaWorld should have invested in their animals more. What they had planned for Blue World project should have come to light. They should have expanded all animals habitats and made them better. Very sad to see this beautiful area of the park destroyed for yet another ride
