SeaWorld Orlando Opens Aquatica Water Park
Written by MyFoxOrlando WOFL FOX 35
On Saturday, March 1, SeaWorld Orlando unveiled its Aquatica water park after nearly seven years of planning. The new attraction blends together animal experiences with water-themed rides and sandy beaches. The nearly 60 acre park, located east of International Drive, also features winding rivers, hidden grottos and waterfalls.Tweet
All told, there are thirty-six water slides, six "lazy" rivers, and more than 80,000 square feet of beach area. The park’s signature attraction plunges riders in clear tubes through a crystal-blue lagoon which holds black-and-white Commerson’s dolphins.
