normally i would say Aquatica...but with the age of your kid i'm not so sure. Wet 'n Wild has better slides so if that's important to the 8 year old than pick Wet 'n Wild.

I think aquatica is the best choice for an 8 year old and plus it is a new park so you can say that you have experienced something that not a lot of other people have experienced yet. Wet n Wild does have more rides but your 8 year old might not be able to get on all of them and the park is smaller in size and can feel really busy where aquatica there is more space and the theming is really good.

We went to Wet N Wild on our 1st visit to Orlando and although we enjoyed the slides we found that the ground really hurt our bare feet. Also discovered that the 2 Disney waterparks were much nicer.

I WOULD probably go to aqautica, ive never bee to wet n wild in orlando, but weve drove past it loads and im affraid to say it looks like a lot of leg work, all those flights of stairs to climb up, its really hard going, you might think going to a water park is relaxing but if your going up and down stairs all day is shattering

we tried wet'n'wild on our last visit and although it was ok the other two didney water parks were far superior. so i think we'll give aquatica a go when we visit in May this year.

Just back from our first ever trip to Orlando. It was brilliant! I can recommend Aquatica as we went twice, and with a child near your child's age. Be warned though, that it gets VERY busy, so plan to get there when the park opens. Otherwise you'll spend ages wandering around the place looking for spare sun chairs.

Its a lovely park, great fun for the family. I know that it didn't get great reviews when it opened first, but our family really enjoyed our two visits there.

Happy Vacation!
