SeaWorld Update: Antarctica Queue Changes and More

SeaWorld Orlando is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful and inspiring theme parks ever created. Its wonderful landscape and detailed exhibits help in setting it apart from other parks in the area, Just like the other parks, though, SeaWorld continues to introduces changes (some more prominent than others) to improve the current offerings available to Guests. For example, the queue of Antarctica: Empire of the Penguin was recently modified. And there's more to check out.

Welcome to SeaWorld Orlando:

A new structure now features posters advertising some of SeaWorld's upcoming special events:


A new Manta-themed soft-serve kiosk recently opened in the area:

Key West:

It's time to pay a visit to Antarctica:

As part of a new Empire of the Penguin queue configuration, an ugly-looking fence has been installed:

There are three entrances to the attraction now:

Quick Queue on the far left, Ride Entry in the middle, Non-Riders on the right:

New wait time displays have also been installed:

Riders and non-riders still enter from the same entrance. The queue then splits at a certain point:

The un-themed fence has also been installed in the pre-show room and indoor queue:

A new pre-show room has been created for non-riders. These Guests go directly to the penguin exhibit bypassing the attraction itself. Before doing so, there's a very brief pre-show. Take a look:

The new pre-show room looks similar to the others:

The penguin exhibit has received no apparent changes:

Let's now explore the Waterfront area:

It seems like some of the buildings in the area were recently repainted:

The Voyagers Smokehouse received a new banner:

Mako (many more photos of this new coaster can be found by clicking here):

  1. I love how beautiful the park looks. I hope they keep that aspect of the park as a primary concern. I think the "Fajitas" sign on the side of the Seafire Grill restaurant is a bit tacky. There are, in my honest opinion, definitely areas that can benefit from the tlc SeaWorld is giving to other areas of the park and hopefully they will turn their attention to those areas after the completion of Mako. I really think Kraken needs some tlc bad after Mako opens. Also both Shamu's Happy Harbor, Wild Arctic are both areas that I think deserve some updating. I would include Shamu Stadium, but from what I've heard that's coming sometime in 2019 or 2020 after the company makes changes to the Shamu Stadiums at the other two SeaWorld parks.

  2. lol why are those people staring you down?

  3. Not enough to get me to go back. I would bring back free beer and make the shows more predator based like Gatorland or Jurassic World. I would pay $90 to see a Killer Whale jump up to eat a goat or meat
