Wild Arctic simulator permanently closing at SeaWorld San Diego in January 2020

SeaWorld San Diego has announced that their "Wild Arctic" attraction will be closing for good on January 10, 2020. This flight simulator attraction originally opened to guests in 1997 and simulates a dangerous 5 minute long helicopter ride over Antarctica. The attached Arctic-themed animal exhibit that guests have exited into from the attraction will remain open. SeaWorld San Diego has stated that a new attraction for 2021 will utilize the existing space. Details on that new attraction have not been formally announced, but an Arctic-themed family launch coaster is rumored to be in the works.
