Very nice report, Russell. I'm assuming no one else is commenting on it because they're too busy down in the tournament area...

Thorough and informative review. From the pictures and descriptions Aquatica does not appear to be as lush, beautiful, or tropical as the artist conceptions suggested. Still, based on your comments, it seems to be worth a visit.

The video was a nice touch, but you are right, you see nothing as you pass by the Dolphin tank, just a blur. A little disappointed, but heck, go to Discovery Cove if you want to swim with Dolphins I guess!

Thanks again for the review, Russell.

Robert, how about adding some other water parks to the list along the right side of the web site? Not just the Disney ones, but also Schlitterbahn, Water Country, Wet N Wild, etc. Maybe the top five or ten attended water parks, if someone has the numbers and the attractions. I dunno, just an idea. You don't have anything else to work on, do you? ;)

The two Disney parks are coming, as soon as the tournament is over and I have the time. Beyond that, we'll see how the Web traffic is to those three, and if there is significant traffic, I'll work my way down the annual attendance list 'til the traffic dies out. (Like I did with the regular theme parks....)

Best Aquatica review so far. Insightful, with good continuity, and some great pictures.

You get my vote for the contest.

Thanks, Robert. A great idea, if I do say so myself! =)

Great review.

Question though.. Isn't there a slide in Atlantis, Paradise Island where you also slide through a tank with sharks and other marine life?
