After months of construction at SeaWorld Orlando we finally get to see the dolphins play in their new and improved Dolphin Nursery with built-in viewing windows! This improved new take on the area is much better for children. Now they can see the dolphins play and swim under the water. And there’s even areas where kids can draw using colorful street chalk. The re-designed Dolphin Nursery also comes with an info screen, beautiful theming and intricate rockwork.
Nearby in the same area, Flamecraft Bar is also open, right next door to the SeaFire Grill. The Flamecraft Bar serves up craft beers, specialty cocktails and some snacks. Before we go we check in on Infinity Falls construction as well. Not too much going on, just spaying water to compact the dirt within the area. Check out the video and full photo report below, and stay tuned for more theme park news coming soon.

Kids are allowed to draw on the rocks with chalk
Love the little details like these colorful barnacles between the rocks
Kids only viewing areas are on the other side, with railings and ramp access
The dolphins were playing with toys when I was there
This new version is a vast improvement over the original

Let’s take a quick look at Infinity Falls construction
As we’ve been saying, the existing restaurant will remain, but everything else has been removed
A look at the area
The ground is being compacted down using water
The palm trees in front of the structure are to remain as well
These walls are coming out a little further now
The animal stables are not going anywhere either
Can’t wait to see some action start going up beyond the walls soon!
The Blue Bunny ice cream sandwich truck was in the park last week
You can mix and match ingredients to create your own ice cream sandwich
