SeaWorld Orlando announced all of their new upgrades and changes that will be taking place for the end of 2016 and 2017. SeaWorld across the board is making 2017 a huge year bringing new experiences, interactions, rides and more making the park more marketable and exciting! Let’s take a look into some of the new experiences and interactions for 2017!
First off, Kraken will be transformed in 2017 into Central Florida’s first VR coaster. Guests will embark on a deep sea mission alongside sea creatures inspired by extinct and legendary animals of the past, including the mighty Kraken. A custom digital overlay with uniquely designed headsets, fully integrated both mechanically and electronically into the coaster train delivers a new one-of-a-kind adventure. The addition of VR to this fan-favorite brings a new level of excitement and interest in Kraken, giving guests the opportunity to experience the coaster in a completely new way.
Next, SeaWorld Orlando’s Dolphin Nursery will get a full revamp allowing over and underwater viewing making the area and experience better for families! This area will also include a display wall that will allow SeaWorld to go live around the world to showcase amazing things with dolphins from other parks, or even a rescue live as it happens!
Starting February 2017, SeaWorld will transform into a world full of fun and food! The Seven Seas Festival will offer street food from Asia, the Caribbean, South America and the Mediterranean. The expanded festival will bring new culinary offerings to guests throughout the park. Plus, guests will be able to indulge in a variety of international, local and seasonal craft brews on tap giving their taste buds a worldly delight.
Sticking with craft brews, SeaWorld will open the Flamecraft Bar. Flamecraft Bar is a new dining location adjacent to the SeaFire Grill along the waterfront area that will provide a great place to pause for a drink in a casual atmosphere. The Flamecraft Bar will feature 16 seasonal craft brews and a new menu to tempt the taste buds.
