The Wild Artic Ride
The Wild Arctic Ride at SeaWorld in Orlando, Florida is a flight simulator that takes passengers through a jet helicopter ride full of breathtaking thrills and features the cold, barren landscape of the Arctic Circle. The pilot takes you through the frozen valleys and peaks on your way to the Base Station Wild Arctic. Once on base, you can discover a range of arctic animals with exhibits and interactive activities.
This ride opened in 1998 and was designed by SeaWorld Parks and Entertainment. The ride is approximately five minute long with three vehicles and has a maximum capacity of 100 guests per ride.
A rider’s adventure will vary depending on the seat they choose. Riders who want the biggest thrill should find seats near the corners and those looking for a more mild time will want to put themselves closer to the center of the ride.
Ride requirements include being at least 42 inches tall. Those between 42 and 48 inches will need to be accompanied by an adult during the ride. People who have preexisting health conditions who may want to avoid this ride include pregnant women, those who have high blood pressure or those who suffer from motion sickness.
