SeaWorld Orlando’s Antarctica: Empire of the Penguin Opening May 24



Antarctica: Empire of the Penguin – sure to be Orlando’s must-see new attraction – will transport families into a rarely seen, icy world. They’ll feel the majestic grandeur of the South Pole and see it through the penguins’ eyes on an exhilarating, first-of-its-kind family ride. They’ll explore a massive penguin colony in an expanse that envelops them in cool extremes, both above and below the penguins’ icy world. It’s a must-see, one-of-a-kind theme park experience only at SeaWorld in Orlando.

I know my kids are super excited to experience this new attraction, they love penguins and this looks like an amazing way to really get into their world and see how they live up close.  We will certainly be going this summer and but in the mean time we are having some fun with the free app.




The free Antarctica app, available now for iPhones, iPads and Android devices and can be downloaded at SeaWorldOrlando.com/Antarctica.

The app is full of incredible create-and-share videos and photos, where fans can swim, march and dance with penguins. They can place their face onto an Antarctic explorer. And the best part? All of videos and photos can easily be shared with family and friends through social media channels — Facebook, Twitter and You Tube – and can be emailed, too.

The app is also the place to get the cold, hard facts about penguins and Antarctica, watch incredible behind-the-scenes teaser videos about the “making of” SeaWorld Orlando’s newest attraction, Antarctica: Empire of the Penguin.  Fans can even enter the Family Voyage Sweepstakes to win a trip to Orlando!

Check out the video below and make some of your own videos with the penguins!

You can like SeaWorld on Facebook and follow them on twitter at @SeaWorld to hear the latest news on new attractions and offers.

    I can only wish to go and visit the park since I don’t have a US visa yet. I downloaded the free app and it gave me lots of ideas on what I can present to my theme park client who wanted to have an android app for his business.

    thank you for sharing this! 😉

    I haven’t been too crazy about Sea World since Anheiuser Busch sold them to another company, but this looks like an interesting new addition. I know the Arctic themed area of Sea World San Diego was really cool back in the 90’s. The only problem with penguins is the SMELL . . . ew! 🙂

    I remember being at Sea World of Florida when it opened and the celebrities stayed at our motel and signed autographs. Charles Nelson Reilly and Florence Henderson were lounging by the pool. Being from Ohio, we thought that our Shamu the whale was the smartest, but we no longer have a Sea World up here. I think penguins are regal and playful and I’ve seen them at zoos.

    I’ve been to Florida near Orlando many times but I’ve never been to Seaworld before! Next time I go I’m going to make it a point now! Thanks! 🙂
