Aquatica had it’s much-awaited grand opening in in 2009 and did not disapppoint. It has an Australian theme, and, being a SeaWorld park, hosts a lot of wildlife. There are Commerson’s Dolphins and a huge tank of tropical fish, both of which can be viewed from the lazy river. There are also exotic birds and tortoises on display.
Aquatica features two wave pools of different intensities.
One of the most unusual attractions at Aquatica is Roa’s Rapids, which is similar to a lazy river but the water moves much faster. It is situated in the middle of the park so it serves as an aquatic people mover.
Parking: Cars and motorcycles $15, RVs and campers $20, passholders free. Same day parking between SeaWorld and Aquatica: save you receipt if you plan on attending both the same day.
Hours vary depending on season and day of week.
Ticket prices: SeaWorld parks are constantly running specials including multi-day and multi-park discounts. In general, it is cheapest to purchase a 14-day multi-park unlimited visit pass. If also visiting Discovery Cove, 14-day admission to Aquatica and SeaWorld is included and Busch Gardens + free parking can be added on for $25.
