Aquatica Orlando

Aquatica Orlando is the water park next door to Sea World and is owned by Sea World. We spent a day here last year and had so much fun. I think we have been to every major water park in Orlando now and this one is currently our favorite. Some reasons why this one has become our favorite:

  • Lots of water rides
  • Short lines
  • Extremely cool kids’ area
  • Large wave pool

I just could not get over how short the lines were for every ride. I assume that it is because there is so much to do that it keeps the ride lines down. 

When we are not riding the water rides we spent much of our time here in the massive kid’s play area, Walk About Waters. As you can see from the pictures they have body slides here too, and yes, adults are welcome to use them as well. However, if you do not have kids with you, then no you can’t. No one wants to look like a creeper.
