Great Staff!!!! The Dolphin Plunge was not at all what I thought it would be but the park was very clean and has a very helpful staff. We went young children and they had a blast the have life jackets all over the park for FREE and the little ones were able to fully enjoy most of the park.

There is something for everyone here! Can get busy but it's a water park so you can expect it! They have macaws which are cute!

We went to Aquatica after wanting to go earlier when we saw it getting built, so the expectations were very high. I must admit we were not disapointed. We found it very clean and very family friendly . I loved the lazy river it is one of my favourite experiences .
All in all I cant say anything bad about the whole of aquatica.

i went there in the summer of 2013 for my birthday and hated it! the lines were too long i waited an hour for 1 ride that lasted 40 seconds i went to wait in line for the Dolphin Plunge where you slide in a tube through a pool of dolphins and the wait was 2 hours so we stayed for 3 hours at most and then left i would consider going back if it were less crowded.

We visited using a ticket purchased as part of our Discovery Cove dolphin visit, we didn't expect much from Aquatica but thoroughly enjoyed it! I can't remember the names of the rides but....

Lazy river with rings - a warm, gentle lazy river that you can float around in a single or double inflatable ring. There were plenty of both sets of rings, and you were around the river in 5/10 mins tops. You were able to float past an aquarium of tropical fish (no fish in the lazy river!) and past the Commerson dolphin tank (black and white dolphins). Pretty good all round.

The same rings (single or duo) can also be used on two slides with a 'sink hole' both fun and not too fast - kids will love them.

Fast lazy river - very fast moving, but consistently shallow (3-4 feet) lazy river. Two main entrances and exits to the river and its quite a challenge to get out - but in a fun way - because of the fast flow!! Life jacket buoyancy aids are available for all sizes (kids -adults) if needed - there were plenty being worn, you needn't feel embarrassed!,

Dolphin slide - you can't really see the dolphins that well, you're going fast and the dolphins have to be in the right place! But, so what - you can see the dolphins from the lazy river or from the viewing area anyway.

Boat slides - there are two slides where you sit in a small paddling pool type boat (one is max group of four, the other group of three) and one is a straight down slide the other is more helter skelter. Both are great for families, and really good fun.

There are many other slides and a large water play area - all worth going on.

You are restricted what food and drinks you can bring in (small packs of crisps and fruit and water only) and although we didn't try it, there is an all day lunch/drink snack package that seemed reasonably priced.

You can hire lockers at c$20 but you get $5 when you return the key. Expensive? - probably, but well worth it and you don't go to the parks without expecting to put your hand in your pocket......
