Happy Birthday Aquatica Orlando! Today Aquatica, SeaWorld’s Waterpark, Orlando is celebrating ten years of providing extreme and peaceful watery fun to both Orlando residents and visitors. The park, which opened March 1, 2008, quickly became a staple in the vast landscape of Orlando water parks and ranks as one of the best water parks in the United States by TripAdvisor®.
To commemorate the park’s special day, Aquatica commissioned the sculpting of a 22-ton sand sculpture depicting a birthday cake inspired by Aquatica’s latest addition, Ray Rush. The sculpture measures 15’ wide, 8’ tall and took skilled artisans nearly 25 hours to complete. The sculpture will be on display inside the park for guests to see through March 5.
The park was also recently voted “Best Water Park” by Orlando Sentinel readers in the publication’s annual Best Bets reader’s choice awards in 2017. “The Sentinel just confirmed what everyone already knew, Aquatica is the place where Orlando residents go when they want the best water park experience,” said David Heaton, Aquatica Orlando vice president. “We are so excited to be the water playground of choice for Orlando locals and visitors alike.”
Orlando’s best water park is only getting better in 2018 with the ultimate birthday gift for park guests, Ray Rush. The new attraction promises to be a fully-loaded water adventure which will combine three unique slide elements, never before seen at Aquatica, into one action-packed attraction families can enjoy together. With a height requirement of only 42”, this all-new triple-fusion family raft ride will allow guests of all ages to slide, splash and soar like never before on a slide that is both thrilling and family-friendly.
The park is also celebrating the occasion by offering an incredible deal on Annual Passes. Through March 15, Florida residents can purchase an Annual Pass to Aquatica for just $10 a month with EZpay. Aquatica Pass Members enjoy unlimited admission and free parking as well as discounts and the opportunity to be among the first to ride Ray Rush when it opens in spring 2018. The park is also offering guests the opportunity to purchase 6” x 8” photos in the park for just $10 through the end of April. Additional details available at www.AquaticaOrlando.com.
