Video: SeaWorld Orlando's Discovery Cove previews Freshwater Oasis attraction

Freshwater Oasis concept art

SeaWorld Orlando's Discovery Cove premium water park has released a new video showing off progress on the installation of its new Freshwater Oasis attraction.

The new area will offer swimming and water experiences, with guests able to get up close to otters and marmosets. It will be themed around a rainforest, with guests able to wade or float in a number of "tropical" streams and pools. No glass will separate guests from the marmosets on the island.

The previous tropical pool at Discovery Cove was replaced last year by the Grand Reef, with the park having struggled to prevent saltwater from it leaking into the underground aquifer below.

The Grand Reef project marked the first expansion of Discovery Cove since it opened in 2000. The park, which limits attendance to around 1,000 guests per day, aims to offer more intimate experiences than neighboring SeaWorld, such as the ability to swim with dolphins.
