Shamu Stadium Sea World  Shamu Stadium

Sea World Orlando

Aquatica Orlando is a sister park of SeaWorld Orlando and Discovery Cove. The park is themed to the southern Pacific, and features Australian and New Zealand based mascots including Roa (a kiwi), Kata (a kookaburra), Wai (a Commerson's dolphin), Ihu (a gecko), Papa (a Royal Spoonbill), Wae Wae (a takahē), and Motu (a turtle). The park features a wide array of attractions for all ages and swimming abilities, some of which pass by or through animal habitats. The park has two wave pools which share an extensive, 80,000-square-foot man made white-sand beach area equipped deck chairs, Sun beds and umbrellas. A very nice water park but may not suit everyone.

Attractions:

Body/mat slides

  • Dolphin Plunge – the park's signature attraction, these two enclosed tube slides pass through a pool containing a pod of Commerson's dolphins. The dolphins in this attraction are all captive-born males that were originally featured at SeaWorld San Diego. Their names are Fabio, Pepe, and Ross.
  • Ihu's Breakaway Falls - is a drop pod style body slide recently opened in 2014
  • Taumata Racer – an eight-lane racing slide with guests sliding down on mats through enclosed and open sections.

Raft slides

  • Whanau Way – a tower with four double-raft slides. (1 or 2 Riders)
  • Tassie's Twisters – a pair of funnel-like slides that can be ridden in single or double rafts. This ride can only be accessed through Loggerhead Lane.
  • Omaka Rocka – Aquatica's newest ride, rafts each carrying one rider descend into one of two slides with segments that look like a tornado funnel laying on its side.

Multi-person family raft slides (Round rafts)

  • Walhalla Wave – a twisty slide with enclosed, pitch-dark segments. Nearly lasts a minute. (1 - 4 Riders, 4th rider must be under 60")
  • HooRoo Run – sharing a tower with Walhalla Wave, this triple-dip slide is short, but fast. (2 or 3 Riders, 3rd rider must be under 60") (2 Riders Required)

Lazy rivers

  • Roa's Rapids – a faster, aggressive version of the lazy river with geysers, speed zones and center islands. You need to be quite strong to deal with the current here.
  • Loggerhead Lane – a traditional lazy river that passes through a grotto of cichlids and the Commerson's dolphin exhibit.

Wave pools

  • Cutback Cove – featuring stronger, taller waves.
  • Big Surf Shores – featuring gentler, rolling waves.

Children's areas

  • Kata's Kookaburra Cove – designed for younger children, with smaller slides and play features.
  • Walkabout Waters – a play fortress with slides, ladders and dumping water buckets.
