A new family coaster at SeaWorld Orlando, Penguin Trek, will invite guests to board a snowmobile-styled vehicle and explore the Antarctic wilderness.
Penguin Trek and its 2024 opening was announced Thursday, alongside new attractions at each of its SeaWorld parks in the U.S. next year.
Penguin Trek will feature two launches and a 3,020-foot, indoor-and-outdoor track. It will reach speeds of 43 mph. The coaster will end in SeaWorld Orlando’s penguin habitat.
Penguin Trek will welcome riders from 42 to 77 inches, and is expected to open next spring.
It will be SeaWorld Orlando’s eighth coaster.
New attractions in San Diego, San Antonio
Next year, SeaWorld San Diego will debut Jewels of the Sea: The Jellyfish Experience, an interactive aquarium.
To be located in the Ocean’s Explorer area, three galleries will showcase several types of jellyfish. It will feature an 18-foot-tall cylinder and a five-foot diameter habitat; the latter will have water pouring from the top and sides that guests can touch.

A behind-the-scenes tour of the area will be an added cost.
Catapult Falls, what SeaWorld says will be the world’s first launched flume coaster with North America’s only vertical lift, will open next year at SeaWorld San Antonio. The attraction was announced in 2022.
Annual passholders will get the chance to preview all three new experiences before they open to the public.
