Aquatica at SeaWorld Orlando

Waterpark in Orlando

Aquatica is one of Orlando’s newest and most popular waterparks (and there’s quite a few of them to choose from), located at SeaWorld south of Downtown Orlando. Among a day’s worth of fun slides and water attractions, the incredible ‘Dolphin Plunge’ gains the most attention here, a ride that allows you slide through a transparent tube with dolphins swimming about in the surrounding pool. The huge 59-acre park is open all year round, with day tickets to Aquatica costing $47 or combined Aquatica + SeaWorld passes available for $126.

Dolphin Plunge has proven to be Aquatica’s most popular attraction since it first opened, which in turn does mean you have to queue for your turn. The wait is worth it though; where else in the world can you slide through a water shoot with actual dolphins swimming 360 degrees around you – with just a thin layer of plastic between you and them! If you’re lucky, the Commerson’s Dolphins will race alongside you as you zoom along! For all the dolphin fans out there, do note that SeaWorld provides other attractions and ‘up close’ tours – though you’ll need to pay extra charges.

Ihu’s Breakaway Falls is one of the park’s newest and most hair-raising attractions. We’re told it’s the only ‘multi-drop’ tower of its kind in Orlando, with brave riders waiting side by side at the top of the slide, before you – or your friend – drops down into oblivion (or just the pool of water below).

Another popular slide for those coming with friends and family is Taumata Racer; easily recognizable with its multi-colored lanes and tall frame towering over Aquatica, race down, head first, on your mat, with the first person reaching the pool below the winner.

Other high adrenalin attractions to look out for at Aquatica include the exhilarating HooRoo Run, the giant flumes at Omaka Rocka and Tassie’s Twisters – basically a huge sink where you wind down to the drop hole at the bottom. For a more leisurely time at Aquatica water park, head over towards the slightly less scary Walkabout Waters, Loggerhead Lane or Roa’s Rapids.

Aquatica: Good to Know

Do note that Aquatica Waterpark is part of the wider SeaWorld complex, although the park actually sits next door with a separate entrance – meaning you only need one ticket if you just want to visit the water park. In fact, those looking to experience the adjacent SeaWorld as well as the water park should consider buying a multi-day ticket (the whole complex is huge), with two-day passes starting from $99.

Aquatica also uses a helpful ‘cashless wristband’ system where you can top up your money before and not worry about getting your money wet. Dotted around the park are plenty of restaurants, cafes, shops and shady areas to cool off, as well as full changing facilities, showers and onsite parking.
