Let’s take a look at the massive expansion to SeaWorld Oralndo set to open in 2013.  Antrctica: Empire of the Penguins is a new trackless attraction that will whisk riders away to the frigid southern reaches of the planet.  It promises to allow each guests an encounter with the adorable black and white animals.

 Details are still very sketchy on the overall ride.  But, we have been very diligently documenting the construction of this new experience.  Today we bring you another installment of the progress, direct from the construction site.

Overall this is a massive project.  Settled at the heart of the park, the construction walls are noticeable at nearly every turn.

We now get back down to ground level and try to peer into the constriction site for any further details that can be gleaned. Not much, but the development is fascinating.

At ground level you can get a sense of the scale

Antactica: Empire of the Penguin is coming to SeaWorld Orlando spring 2013. It will transport guests into the icy world of the penguin like never before, on a first-of-its-kind family adventure ride. According to SeaWorld Orlando, guests will walk among penguins as they explore a penguin colony. Let’s hope that the experience lives up to the hype!
