SeaWorld has revealed plans to open new, "one-of-a-kind" marine life themed rides and attractions at all three of its SeaWorld parks during Spring 2024.

The new attractions include "Penguin Trek" at SeaWorld Orlando – an all-new family friendly coaster which will transport riders on an expedition through the Antarctic wilderness.

Riders will travel aboard unique snowmobile styled ride cars, traversing at speeds of up to 43 mph across a 3,020-foot indoor/outdoor track that ends at the penguin habitat where riders can experience the world of the remarkable, flightless birds.

At SeaWorld San Diego, guests will be able to visit a first of its kind at SeaWorld parks, the all-new "Jewels of the Sea: The Jellyfish Experience".

The attraction features an 18ft-tall cylinder, among the tallest jelly cylinders in the country, a 10ft-tall acrylic living arch of jellyfish for guests to walk through for views from multiple angles, plus a vivid display from walls to ceiling that show virtual oceanic moments, ranging from calm waters to dynamic, energetic crescendos.

Offering an immersive and interactive view into the mysterious underwater world of glowing and graceful jellyfish, guests will also be able to take part in touch and "behind the scenes" experiences.

The third new attraction will be at SeaWorld San Antonio, where guests will be treated to the opening of the much-anticipated Catapult Falls, the world's first launched flume coaster and the only vertical lift in North America.

First announced in 2022, it will feature the world's steepest flume drop and the tallest flume drop in Texas.

The family-friendly ride will catapult through the launch at speeds of 30 feet per second, allowing riders to feel the rush of a coaster while experiencing the rocking and swaying of riding on a track of water.

Marc Swanson, CEO of SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment, said: "2024 looks to be another fun year with exciting new rides in our parks and our first jellyfish exhibit.

"We know our fans will delight in the all-new lineup of marine life inspired experiences that gives everyone even more new ways to really enjoy our parks.

"And when they do, they can feel good knowing that a portion of proceeds goes toward our rescue and conservation work."
