Great pictures Adam, Aquatica is a great water park. I have always loved the entrance to that park the multiple levels between the entrance path, Dolphin Plunge, the commerson's tank, and the lazy river make that are so dynamic. Omaka Rocka always looked like a weird slide, I haven't been back since it opened but I have a feeling when I do I'm going to think it is kinda lame.

Incredible TR, Adam. It almost looks like Aquatica is a catalogue park for ProSlide Canada in all their attractions.

Unfortunately for some of us, it would be impossible to enter. That close to SeaWorld would end up with me being picked up by animal rescue and thrown into the Killer Whale tank to be saved...

Thanks for the report Adam!

I wonder why the park switched up the menu on the all you can eat buffet. Will there be less food waste with the pizza and pasta which can be left out under a heat lamp with minimal downgrade in taste compared with burgers?

^^I think it's some sort of law that all Merlin parks must have a pizza-and-pasta buffet. If the roast chicken at the buffet is like what they serve at the Festhaus at BGW, I imagine it's pretty good.

I'd like to check out Aquatica the next time I'm in Orlando. I've heard mixed reviews of the place, and I'd like to decide for myself.

I've been there a couple times this year, the clientele is FAR from "cute girls in bikinis." :omg:

However, it's a beautiful water park and despite it being VERY crowded one of the days I went, waits usually aren't that bad. Lots of fun slides, too, although I wish they had a little more to do there. I can go there and do everything I want to do in an hour or two and be done (kinda like SWO).

That's kind of my problem with all of the water parks in Orlando except Wet n Wild, I feel like when it's not crowded I can do everything I want several times in just a few hours. Wet n Wild is probably the "worse" water park in Orlando all around but i think they have by far the best slide selection and better pricing so I end up there more often than any of the others.

Comparing Aquatica, Blizzard Beach, and Typhoon Lagoon my favorite tends to be whichever I visited most recently, they're all really good.

Have I mentioned how awesome donkeys are?

I don't plan to visit Aquatica while I'm down here in Orlando because it looks like a slightly enhanced version of any old "Tropical" waterpark. Whereas I do plan to visit Wet-N-Wild because it has a whole host of badass slides! And they're even themed!
