SeaWorld Orlando is currently undergoing a bit of a transformation. 

With the addition of Infinity Falls last year, SeaWorld is keeping up with its promise of a new attraction every year.

This year, SeaWorld will open Sesame Street Land, an interactive play area for kids of all ages with attractions, splash pad, characters, dining, and a first-ever for SeaWorld, a parade!

The land is set to open this Spring...which...is now. 

A YouTube Channel named Midway Mayhem filmed testing of rides and attractions at Sesame Street Land and showing the workers putting the finishing touches ahead of the opening of the new area.

Now that Sesame Street Land is ready to sing and dance with the kiddos, a new attraction may be on the horizon for the park.

According to Midway Mayhem, permits have been filed for a new attraction called "Attraction 2020" and speculation is it will be a launched roller coaster with a heigh requirement around 48" which is the shortest requirement of the 3 coasters at SeaWorld. 

Mako, Kraken, and Manta all have 54" requirements. 

Perhaps this new attraction will be more of a family coaster with a high thrill factor, but lowers the threshold for those that maybe aren't big enough for Kraken, but want more thrills than Sesame Street.
