Yesterday SeaWorld announced a brand new attraction that will open next Summer at its Orlando theme park.

Infinity Falls is a river rapids attraction set in the heart of the rainforest that is set to feature the worlds tallest river rapids drop!

Jim Dean who is President of SeaWorld Orlando Parks had this to say:

We are constantly looking at new ways to amaze our guests – Infinity Falls will do that, and more. From the excitement of the thrilling rapids, to the unique vertical lift element, it will 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.

It isn’t just the attraction that will be coming to SeaWorld Orlando in 2018, a brand new rainforest themed area will also debut. The new area will open with the Infinity Falls attraction, interactive experiences related to freshwater ecosystems and close-up animal encounters with animals native to South America.

You can watch a video preview below and I have to admit, the vertical lift on a river rapids attraction looks awesome!
