At SeaWorld Orlando’s Inside Look, guests that visit on May 11, 12, 18 and 19 can go behind the scenes, hear and see firsthand what goes into providing world-class animal care from the people who do it every day. This special event will feature 6 unique, entirely behind-the-scenes locations, 5 of which have never been accessible to guests– not even through our exclusive VIP tour programs or our incredible week-long SeaWorld Camps – before this event. Guests are invited to visit all 6 locations, collecting stamps to earn an exclusive Expert Explorer’s Pin. Inside Look tours are available at each location at various times throughout the day.
KareKare Curl™, Aquatica Orlando’s anticipated new attraction will be making its grand debut to park guests on Friday, April 12.
“KareKare” means “waves” in the Maori language and when combined with “Curl” meaning in a curved shape, this new ride could be described as a “curve shaped wave” which riders will experience when climbing the vertical wave wall. True to its name and holding two passengers, this new slide delivers a high-adrenaline, weightless adventure. With the addition of KareKare Curl™ Aquatica Orlando will become the thrill leader among Florida waterparks, with more high thrill rides than any other.
The opening of KareKare Curl will signal the second year in a row that Aquatica Orlando unveils a new attraction, following the opening of the Ray Rush™, the park’s newest attraction which was recently named the world’s best new water ride in a nationwide poll.
