Aquatica, SeaWorld’s WaterparkTM is opening to the public this weekend and is a destination you need to add to your summer bucket list. With everything from water slides, high-speed thrills, a wave pool, beach cabanas, and animal experiences it is fun for all ages.
RIDES AND SLIDES
Whanau Way: Boasts a 60-foot water slide complex featuring six slides, four enclosed and two open air, this
ride is a must on any waterpark enthusiast’s list. The open air slides are slower and a little less scary, especially for kids, or visitors who don’t like enclosed spaces.
HooRoo Run: Choose your own adventure with two enclosed and two open-air slides that are sure to thrill with an 80-foot descent.
Kiwi Curl®: Grab an inner tube and get your adrenaline pumping with one of three 60-foot-tall water slides, and you have an option to slide in the dark.
Walhalla Wave®: This 78-foot ride is designed for families to enjoy together in a
gigantic tube. This is the only ride that offers a tube life, which means no lugging it up the stairs!
Tassie’s Twister: Plunge down a 75-foot water slide in a multi-person raft through thousands of gallons of swirling water before dropping into a six-story funnel.
Big Surf ShoresTM: One of the largest wave pools in Southern California with period swells of up to five feet. There is a countdown clock at the end of the pool that lets you know when the waves are going to start. There is also a white sandy beach (43,000 square feet!) to relax on lawn chairs or in private cabanas.
Loggerhead Lane: Swim or float along in an inner tube down a winding 1,250-foot long lazy river, right past a dozen Caribbean flamingos and through fountains. There are smaller tubes available for children.
Walkabout Waters: A four-story interactive and colorful attraction that features slides, hoses, jets, geysers and more. Every five minutes, a 500-gallon bucket unloads water on everyone below!

Waterstone Grill: which includes flavors from the south, east, and west and dishes include fish tacos, edamame mixed greens salad wrap, chili verde pulled pork, mandarin orange chicken and hamburgers.
