This is the newest water park in Orlando and it really is the best and most manageable. The lines go quickly, the lazy river (not so lazy) is amazing, and the waterslides are great. The beach area fills up very quickly so I recommend setting up camp there as soon as you get in, and then have that as a home base. It is convenient to go back and forth to most of the park from there. Also, the buffet is a great option so the kids can go in and out all day for food and drinks. Very cool park!

We had a very enjoyable day here, the rides are good, lazy river and rapids are also nice for a breather. Small criticism is there could be more sunchairs. We prefer aquatica to wet & wild and would recommend it as a more family friendly waterpark.

We visited in October of 2012. We went on 2 different days. This was our first time @ Aquatica and it was a HUGE hit with my kids!

My kids are hesitant water sliders, so they did not do some of the bigger ones, but even with skipping a few, there were tons of rides to do all day long. We enjoyed the kiddie area too. There was a good mix of slides to be had for the kids.

We opted for the all day eating plan for the kids. For them, eating multiple times throughout the day, in whatever quantity they wanted worked well. For me, who would not have eaten much of what was offered, the choice to not pay for the all day eating was a good one. If you are on the fence, go in & look first :)

I liked that there was an educational area where the kids could learn about some local fish & wildlife.

October was a GREAT time to visit. The weather was fantastic & the lines were minimal!

We really enjoyed walking past the signs that say "45 minute wait from this point". Time of yeat is everything, and if you can go around this time on a weekday, you can walk on just about everything. The longest wait was about 45 seconds.

As for the rides, there were a lot of imaginative water slides and a fun opposite of lazy river. There were 2 wave pools and a san beach in front of both of them. The staff is friendly as well.

The only thing I'd say was negative was that locker rentals are a little on the high side, but not a big deal.

We love Aquatica! Go early to beat the lines, and enjoy your day. If you arrive early enough seating is easy enough to find. Love the kids play area!
