What to Expect From Infinity Falls at SeaWorld Orlando
On Oct. 4, SeaWorld® Orlando launched one of its most immersive adventures yet with the grand opening of its newest thrill ride: Infinity Falls. Now that the attractions experts at Visit Orlando have had the chance to experience it for themselves, here's our guide to the wild raft adventure that sends you careening through a rainforest utopia — and the world's tallest waterfall drop!

Before you head down Infinity Falls' lost jungle river, you'll need to board a raft — and with room for eight passengers, these vessels are big enough for the whole gang! Considering what's waiting for you, you'll definitely want backup, but keep in mind that riders must be at least 42 inches tall to experience Infinity Falls.
From there, you'll journey downriver through the remains of an ancient civilization, winding your way around fountains and waterfalls. After making it past the river's white-water rapids, you'll face the final challenge: an innovative, elevator-style tower that sets you up for a record-setting, 40-foot waterfall drop.
Speaking of which, one word of warning: You will get wet on this ride! Of course, getting soaked can provide some welcome relief from the heat if you're visiting during Orlando's warmer months.

"From the excitement of the thrilling rapids, to the unique vertical lift element, Infinity Falls is an adventure that appeals to the entire family," says Mark Pauls, president of SeaWorld Orlando Parks.
Infinity Falls also delivers more than excitement, as it teaches about the importance of freshwater conservation via interactive games and storytelling throughout the ride experience. And once your journey concludes at peaceful Harmony Village, you'll have the chance to take on the role of a conservationist as you explore the surrounding rainforest.
