SeaWorld Orlando, celebrated as the Coaster Capital of Orlando, is excited to announce the grand opening of its highly anticipated new attraction, Penguin Trek, on July 7, 2024. A family launch coaster like no other, Penguin Trek is located within the all-new Antarctica Realm. This immersive area promises an adventure of a lifetime, combining thrilling rides, delectable dining and unforgettable wildlife encounters.

Penguin Trek redefines the family coaster experience with its innovative design and exhilarating adventure. An experience for the whole family, the ride accommodates everyone from the young adventurer at 42-inches to the tall thrill-seeker up to 77-inches. Guests will beat the summer heat while waiting in the air-conditioned queue lines. Riders will board unique snowmobile-styled ride cars, embarking on a thrilling expedition through the vast and icy wilderness of Antarctica. With two powerful launches and speeds reaching up to 43 mph, the 3,020-foot track winds through both indoor and outdoor environments, presenting a series of twists, turns, and breathtaking moments. But the true highlight awaits at the end of the journey: upon disembarking the ride, guests will find themselves immersed in the chilly confines of the extraordinary and unique penguin habitat. This finale not only thrills but also educates, underscoring SeaWorld’s commitment to animal care and conservation.
