I skipped the ride because the lines were to long, but the exibhit was great. The beluga whales were cool and there was a bird that would stand on a walrus wherever it went.

Wild Arctic is a very elaborate exhibit set up to showcase marine mammals of the northern latitudes of the world. The set-up is that you fly on a jet helicopter out to a long-sunken ship that has since been turned into a reseach station, where the animals have taken residence. The simulator part that begins the experience is not the best in the world, but it is also not terrible either. However, it doesnt really matter, because the main meat of this attraction is not the ride, but the animal exhibits. The ride takes all of about five minutes, while you could spend MUCH longer looking at these great animals. There are beluga whales and harbor seals in one exhibit, polar bears in another, and walruses in the third. You get above- and below-ground viewing for all. The Arctic theme is very well executed and these are magnificant creatures to observe, so I say cut the simulator part some slack.

While the ride is not worth the time to ride, the story is good. It is the worst simulator ride that I have ever been on. I have been on hundreds. It was much better when it was the Bermuda Triangle many years ago. The only part that I liked about this ride was the very end. When the ride was over you disembarked and are on a reaserch station in the artic. You come across large animals face to face. Scene this is not a very popular ride the crowds are low and you get a better view of the animals some of which I have never seen before. The animals are what make it worth my time and only the animals

the simulation is bad, and I know the whole movie by heart. The only cool thing is the animals after you get off the ride.

I cant really remember much of the ride seeing as how I went when I was six, but I do remember that I had fun then. So I guess that says something: its fun for kids. I also remember that really enjoyed the polar bears afterward, and walking through what I remember to be some kind of ice camp or something. Anyway, yea, Ill give it an 8, just b/c its good enough for me to remember I had fun.

NO this was terrible. Sea World needs to stick to its animals and layoff the rides. (cept Kraken). Yea you saw some animals at the end. But the actual ride stunk. And they even have a ride that doesnt move. So in order to see these animals...whether you are pregnant or not, you are forced to ride this crappy ride before you do...there is no way around it!

Pretty cool simulator. The theme was great. Ride was short. And the wall made of ice was cool. ride once you will like it. ride twice you will hate it.

This ride gave a new definition for crappy simulator. It totally sucks. Dont bother wasting your time with it. Add another show to your day instead of wasting time on this. Youll thank me later.

I knew what to expect from this ride before I go ton it. Remembering that this attraction was geared more to the entire family, I think SWC did a good job of creating a ride that everyone can enjoy. I enjoyed myself, I think this sim is compairable to Back to the Furture, and the Previous Mission Bermuda Triangle. A good stepping stone for those who may find other sims to intense. The exhibit afterwards is incredible! I spent an hour there, and I could have easily spent more. Wild Artic is the best animal exhibit I have ever been to!
