Aquatica: SeaWorld's Waterpark

Located right In Orlando, Florida, just across the street from SeaWorld, is SeaWorld’s waterpark, Aquatica. The outdoor water park is open year round, with the exception of some holidays and some Mondays. There, adults and children alike can enjoy rides, slides and an underwater adventure that makes it look like you’re swimming alongside exotic fish. At Aquatica, visitors can explore a wide variety of rides and attractions, eat food and meet the park’s animals.

Aquatica: Rides and Features

Aquatica has more than ten different rides and attractions. These include two huge wave pools, one with high waves that are constantly rolling in, and another, which has a more laid-back feel, although sometimes, their waves could catch you off-guard.

There are also high-speed rides that let children (and adults) zip by in tubes. In the Dolphin Plunge, children and adults can slide though an enclosed underwater tube while the park’s dolphins swim alongside them. Omaka Rocka is another high thrill ride that features tubes and tunnels that have people soaring forward, backward and halfway up walls. Tassie’s Twisters is part of Loggerhead Lane, which spins riders in a giant bowl before their shot out, back onto the river.

Of course, the park also has slower rides that allow visitors to simply kick back and relax. Consider Loggerhead Lane, a lazy river ride that lets riders drift through an underwater world where visitors can see tropical fish and the lagoon where the dolphins are.

There are also rides that are designed specifically for children. Kata’s Kookaburra Cove has beginner slides and water spouts designed specifically for kids. Walkabout Waters is another place for kids. It’s a tall fortress that allows kids to climb and play, with huge buckets that dump water and other fun things.

Clearly, Aquatica has lots of animals that visitors can enjoy. These include dolphins, macaws, tortoises, anteaters and exotic fish. Here, visitors can mix the delights of SeaWorld with high-action fun.
