ORLANDO’S "JOURNEY TO ATLANTIS" A LEGEND OF THE PAST
-- THE RIDE OF THE FUTURE
ORLANDO, FL – The lost city of Atlantis has risen at SeaWorld
Orlando. Journey To Atlantis -- an all-new, one-of-a-kind water
coaster adventure ride through the mysterious and ancient city –
is open at the Orlando adventure park.
||An entirely new experience for
SeaWorld, Journey to Atlantis
plunges brave riders into an adventure of epic proportions where
they are thrilled and tossed by unseen forces, experience
serpentine twists and speed down two of the steepest, fastest,
wettest drops to be found anywhere.
SeaWorld guests helped to create Journey To Atlantis. When
asked by ride designers, guests overwhelmingly said they are
intrigued by the legend of Atlantis, and they want to be thrilled
beyond their wildest imaginations.
"Until now, only astronauts and deep sea explorers could
achieve the level of adventure and excitement our guests will
experience at Journey To Atlantis," said Vic Abbey, SeaWorld
Orlando’s executive vice-president and general manager.
"This is the next generation of adventure ride. We journeyed
thousands of years into the past to create the ride of the
Brave explorers board eight-passenger Greek fishing boats for a
twisting, turning, plunging ride through a mythical world filled
with thrills, chills and spills. The ride -- SeaWorld’s largest
attraction ever -- is the first to combine magical
out-of-this-world illusionary effects with the hair-raising
adventure of a high-speed water ride and a careening roller
coaster. The result? An edge-of-your-seat experience that sets a
new standard for theme park excitement.
Witness The Rise...
Lost for centuries, the ancient city of Atlantis has risen from
the sea. Dripping with water and alive with
sounds from within,
the building is spectacular. In a setting reminiscent of Greece,
its sparkling 10-story tower is adorned with intricate mosaics and
statuary and crowned by a blue dome and a golden seahorse. As
guests board Greek fishing boats for a closer look, they are
pulled into Atlantis by a gentle current. The city’s beauty,
mystery and ancient majesty envelopes them.
Experience The Fall...
Inside the darkened maze, Allura, an evil spirit who lives within
Atlantis, first makes her mischievous presence known. Brave guests
become the stars of their own Greek tragedy as their vessel dives,
falls, dodges, plummets, plunges, careens and dashes at high speed
through the ancient lost city.
Surviving close encounters with gushing fountains and
Allura’s well-aimed water cannons, adventurers pause at the
precipice of a 60-foot drop.
After teetering on the edge for what
seems like an eternity, the boat careens down a near-vertical
waterfall, splashing into the sea below.
But the journey into Atlantis is far from over. Pulling riders
back into the misty and candle-filled catacombs, Allura sends the
craft speeding into wild coaster S-curves and into another
free-falling plunge through a massive wave of water. Eight more
brave souls have made it out of Atlantis alive.
The Thrill Of Your Life Is The Ride Of The Future
Just as the fable of Atlantis captured popular imagination,
Journey To Atlantis is destined to capture the title of the most
imaginative water-coaster ride in theme park history. The
immersive adventure takes passengers through multiple levels of
fantasy, reality, history, and mystery. Ride producer Richard Hoag
incorporated scores of cutting-edge special effects and added
whirlpools, vortexes, and maelstroms throughout the groundbreaking
"I’m speaking for the entire creative team when I say we
worked to the peak of our abilities," said Hoag. "When
you bring to life a subject as well-known as Atlantis, you have to
create a show that delivers not only what guests want -- but
surpasses their wildest imaginations."
Discover A New World. The All-New SeaWorld
The speed, energy and attention to detail found within Journey To
Atlantis is reflected in the aggressive expansion schedule at the
all-new SeaWorld Orlando. Since SeaWorld was acquired by
Anheuser-Busch Companies, Inc. in 1989, the adventure park has
added more than 24 new shows and attractions – one of the
world’s most aggressive theme park expansion schedules.
