Aquatica® Orlando • Orlando

Water has never made such a splash! Especially when it’s experienced SeaWorld®-style at Aquatica® Orlando, chosen by USA Today as the “Nation’s Best Outdoor Waterpark”. Dive head first into the fun as you explore acres of watery wetness, winding rivers and sandy beaches. You can waterslide the day away, go for a thrill ride or simply float serenely along the lazy river called Loggerhead Lane.

As you do, check out the technicolored underwater views of marine life. Or take the family on a raft ride like no other at Ray Rush, the newest Aquatica® addition, where you’ll twist, spin, soar and swoop in temperature controlled water for year round amusement. And be sure to stop and visit Commerson’s dolphins, where you can travel through a school of these playful, black-and-white creatures from an enclosed see-through tube. Other must-sees include rafting or tubing at Omaka Rocka, Tassie’s Twisters, Walhalla Wave and Whanau Way.
