Aquatica announces vertical expansion; Busch Gardens Williamsburg add a new rock n' roll show
Written by Oak A
Aquatica, SeaWorld Orlando’s water park, is teasing its new attraction for 2014 with the Twitter hashtag #NothingTaller. The announcement also implicitly confirmed reports of height-test balloons being deployed over Aquatica recently by also releasing an image of a height-test balloon with a tag affixed to it reading 105’.Tweet
According to the Orlando Sentinel, SeaWorld announced that the new attraction would be “the tallest water thrill ride of its type in Orlando.” The Sentinel's report suggests Aquatica's new attraction will not be a traditional speed slide, as Disney’s Blizzard Beach’s Summit Plummet extends 120 feet into the air.
In other SeaWorld Parks and Entertainment news, sister park Busch Gardens Williamsburg in Virginia has announced a new show for 2014. London Rocks will play in a renovated Globe Theatre and feature a 25-minute live-action and multimedia tribute to the heyday of rock in England. The area around the theater will be refurbished before next spring, to reflect the theme of the new show.
