When Aquatica, SeaWorld’s waterpark, opened
last spring it was the first major new park addition to the Orlando
area in nearly a decade.
The South Seas-themed venue combines the waterpark experience with
the marine life encounters of SeaWorld’s other properties.
Aquatica’s signature ride is Dolphin Plunge, a clear tube
slide that shoots riders through a pool of black and white
Commerson’s dolphins. Other park animal life includes macaws
and an array of colorful fish.
Aquatica also features more than 35 water slides, several river
channels and lagoons, two wave pools and an 80,000-square-foot
sandy beach. For children, there’s Walkabout Waters, a
15,000-square-foot aquatic playground highlighted by a 60-foot-tall
interactive play structure.
