As part of a major expansion announcement in November, SeaWorld Orlando revealed TurtleTrek, a 3D 360-degree movie-based attraction that will immerse guests into the world of sea turtles and other undersea creatures. Now they’ve launched a new webisode series diving deeper into the topic, with a look at more artwork and offering new details.
Hosted by creative director Brian Morrow, the video shows off TurtleTrek’s “first on the planet” 3D 360-degree dome theater, as well as emphasizes the live animal exhibit that will accompany it.
Video – SeaWorld Orlando’s TurtleTrek Webisode 1: Overview
The theater will present a 3D show that follow sea turtles on a journey “over hundreds of thousands of miles.” But like most of SeaWorld’s attractions, TurtleTrek will “blend” close-up animal encounters with the attraction itself, featuring not only sea turtles but also manatees.
Here’s a closer look at the artwork shown off in the video, including a complete cut-out building elevation, as well as a look inside the construction of the TurtleTrek dome screen:
SeaWorld Orlando is promising more details on the creation and testing TurtleTrek in the weeks and months leading to its Spring 2012 opening.
