Seaworld Orlando Announces Major Expansion

Seaworld Orlando's new TurtleTrek
WESH: SeaWorld Orlando announced details Tuesday morning for what representatives call the biggest expansion in the park's history.

Three new attractions will be open at SeaWorld and its Discovery Cove park over the next few years.

At TurtleTrek, which will open at SeaWorld Orlando in spring 2012, parkgoers will go "nose-to-nose" with hundreds of freshwater fish, manatees, and more than a dozen sea turtles.

The second addition is Freshwater Oasis, which opens at Discovery Cove in spring 2012. SeaWorld representatives said it’s an all-new attraction where parkgoers will swim and wade with playful otters and marmosets.

Meanwhile, a total makeover of SeaWorld's penguin attraction, representatives say, will take guests on a journey to Antarctica.

"Empire of the Penguin combines closer-than-ever animal connections with state-of-the-art interactive ride technologies for adventures that are different each time," a SeaWorld statement said.

SeaWorld says the new thrill ride will be the coldest ever.
