Orlando, Florida: If you are looking for a water park in Orlando, then Aquatica, SeaWorld’s Water park is the best place to keep your family entertained. From high-speed water slides and exhilarating wave pools, to tranquil beaches and remarkable animal habitats, Aquatica features 42 slides, rivers and lagoons, and 84,000 square feet of sandy beaches. This park can be very exciting for guests of all ages and interests year-round.
The signature attraction of Aquatica is Ihu’s Breakaway Falls, Orlando’s tallest, steepest, and only multi-drop tower slide of its kind. “At nearly 80-feet tall, Ihu’s Breakaway Falls is where guests face their fears and each other. They’ll step into one of three breakaway boxes or test their bravery open slide, but just as thrilling. They’ll never know who’s going to breakaway first-and the anticipation of who drops next is part of the wild ride,” says Cathy Valeriano, Vice President of Aquatica, SeaWorld’s Waterpark.
Dolphin Plunge at Aquatica is the most popular attractions among the visitors. Here you dash at high speed through a tube underwater, that passes through a 250 feet of clear tubes, where you can actually see the dolphins. “Guests who prefer to see these stunning black-and-white marine mammals without taking the plunge may sneak a peek at Dolphin Lookout,” said Cathy Valeriano
Dolphin Plunge: The most popular ride in the park is our incredible Dolphin Plunge. One look and it’s easy to see why.

Known for their playful nature and electrifying speed, you may well see them racing right alongside you as you zoom by. It’s a ride unlike any other in the world- one only a waterpark by SeaWorld® could create.

Once you get to the top, lightning fast tubes shoot you into a giant bowl, where you’ll spin, and spin, and spin, until you’re finally spun back out into the lazy river. You’ve never seen- or felt- anything quite like it.
