Aquatica Florida Orlando
Where are we going today?
Aquatica Florida is much more than a theme park. It's also much more than just an aquarium. In fact...it's BOTH!
This fun Florida attraction really does have something for the whole family, and then some! First, let us tell you about those scary thrill rides (scary depending on how brave you are, of course!)
You can speed down massive tunnels on Omaka Rocka, or plunge over the edge of the flume in your raft on the HooRoo Run!
Taumata Racer lets you compete against your friends on some very colorful slides, or you can take on Tassie's Twisters - if you dare! It might be like going down the plughole!
If you REALLY want to challenge yourself, how about heading down the Walhalla Wave, which is only SIX stories high. Yep! And then there is what most people consider the highlight - the Dolphin Plunge. You just slide your way through a clear tube slide, through the dolphin pool! What an amazing sight to see how beautiful creatures waving to you as you make your way to the bottom!
Of course, Aquatica Florida is a family park, so there are those attractions perfect for all ages. Walkabout Waters is an endless sea of fun for those adventurous kids, and there are fun river rapids or huge sandy beaches to enjoy. In fact, Aquatica has something very unique at the Big Surf Shores. You see, they have the ONLY two wave pools side by side in the entire USA. Now THAT's pretty cool!
Of course, Aquatica Florida isn't just rides. There are some beautiful creatures that are waiting to say hello. Those dolphins of course (that you can slide through!) and the giant African Spurred Tortoise.
With dining and shopping also within the park, you will certainly need a full day to see it all!

Doing our bit

I visited aquatica for the first time this past 2014 summer, and it was more than I anticipated it to be. Perfect weather. Family friendly environment! Colorful and fun! I was more pleased with how there were enough rides accommodate my 3 year old! I've already purchased tickets to visit before the season ends!

Had a great time at Aquatica. Not very big, but fun and surprisingly not very crowded on a Thursday in late July. I recommend you visit, but splurge for the preferred parking and stash a cooler in your car with lunch and lots of drinks. Park was clearing out by 4pm and by 6pm, rides had a 30 sec wait time.

Loved it. The rides were great. do, however, bring lunchboxes with snacks. When ur done in the park you can enjoy one of the many restaurants around.

Keep an eye on your personal belongings. Had a phone and all cash stolen. Luckily they left my I.D. and car keys when they ditched the bag and my wallet in separate locations. another lady lost her key to her locker and had everything stolen. other than that we had a good time. right up to the end.

Drove 3 hours to visit and 6 hours was enough to do everything!
All employees were great, and the new plunge is awesome!
