Although it was busy, we only had to wait in line for one ride. The rest went by quickly. Lots of lounge chairs available to tan in and for the kids to play in the sugar sand. Awesome that they have life jackets for every size. Also nice, that the washrooms were clean and well stocked. Parking is the cheapest of all the parks, $12. The wave pool set off every 15 minutes, one of our kids favourites. The big kid area was super busy, but the kids did not wait to go on any of the slides. This area is monitored by the parents, not lifeguards! The dumping buckets are everywhere, so keep your head up. Loved the rock music that they played all day. Tons of fun had by all of us

If the weather is going to be hot, get here early so you don't have to spend too much time in line! Very well organized and we all had a blast. The "no picnic lunches" is too bad, though we put lots of snacks in baggies and left before park closing (was getting very busy) to avoid what would be a huge trolley line up. The beach area is very nice, locker rental isn't cheap, though losing your wallet or other valuable would be considerably more expensive. Dolphin plunge slide was disappointing. There are only a few dolphins and the chance of seeing one in the short amount of time you are in the clear tube part is small. Idea is cool, but doesn't really "work".

Had a fabulous day, great fun for all ages from young toddlers to old.
So much to do, brilliant for youngsters will keep them occupied all day, nice park , nice atmosphere , clean , good food, nice helpful staff, would highly recommend, we hired a cabana for the day at winter rates so was value for money but quite expensive in high season, well worth getting if you have infants or elderly.

Don't even think about buying the Banana Beach Buffet option. This buffet is a truly sorry excuse for dining at a pre purchase bargain rate of $13 per person. The food was absolutely inedible!!! Incredibly bad. The water park is pretty much like any other water park. Nothing exceptional at all. This is really a shame as these are the same folks that gave us Sea World [terrific] and Discovery Cove [absolutely wonderful]. I have visited Sea World many times and have also spent the day at Discovery Cove. I cannot imagine how this company, that produced these two parks, could have produced Aquatica. Save your money and go to Disney's water park.

Fantastic time had by all the family! Four children aged 13 down to 5 years old and two parents of course all had something to do, it's a great family waterpark!
The added life jackets were a real bonus, it made the lazy river really live upto it name as you'd just glide along with a jacket one!
The beach effect was also great, our younger two spent over an hour digging and building whilst our older two went into the wave pool right next to it. All the slides were great too, the park was spotless and hardly any queues either. The staff were also more than helpful.
The only negative I would have is that the locker key bracelet is VERY large which makes keeping it on a little bit of a pain, maybe they could change it to an adjustable one?!
I would highly recommend this waterpark if you're staying in the area!
