Is it just me or does it look like this park is missing some of the theming and "story" that Aquatica Orlando has? I guess it will be tough to tell until it opens and we get a full TR, but it just seems to be focusing on the bright colors more than the "tropical" atmosphere in the concept art.
On Thursday, May 17, we are going to open Aquatica to a limited amount of SeaWorld/Aquatica Annual and Platinum pass members DAYS BEFORE we open to the public with this private party! To get in to this event, you'll need to get a wristband on Sunday, May 13 from noon to 5 p.m. (while they last!). We will be distributing these wristbands at Seaside Landing where you will be able to view Aquatica from the large picture windows As with all of our preview events each pass member must be present to collect their wristband.
If you haven’t added Aquatica to your Annual Pass yet visit Guest Services on your next visit to complete your upgrade. You aren’t going to want to miss this private party! If you don’t have your pass at all yet, visit http://www.AquaticaSanAntonio.com to get yours! This exclusive event does not apply to Fun Card or SeaWorld-only annual passes. All the attractions will be open, we will have some great entertainment, and lots of animals. We can practically hear the beaches calling your name!

Besides our amazing team members, animals and attractions what makes Aquatica very unique is the resort like atmosphere we have created. This is truly a waterpark like no other you have experienced in this part of the world. Many waterparks are known for steel towers, lots of concrete and, unfortunately, crowds. We wanted to go the opposite direction with Aquatica.
One of the ways we will do this is by limiting the capacity of the waterpark to make sure everyone is comfortable, has plenty of space and the chance to relax. Therefore, Aquatica’s entry gates will close once the waterpark reaches capacity. So, then what?
Of course we know where will be a high demand for the waterpark especially on hot summer days and some people may arrive after we have reached capacity. Our team has devised a communication plan to make it easy for you to know when we are temporarily closed or open. Simply text the word Aquatica to 90210 (yes, just like the TV show) to get a gate “status update.” When you text this number, you will receive an automatic response stating if Aquatica’s entry gate is open or closed. For example:
You can text this number from anywhere and anytime, which allows you to enjoy your day at SeaWorld until Aquatica’s gates re-open. You can even text this number before you get to the park to help plan your day! Gone are the days of a long line to get into the waterpark; instead, you can see shows, splash around in Bay of Play, visit exhibits and have a great time at SeaWorld. When you are curious about Aquatica’s status, they can simply text Aquatica to 90210!
Aquatica has it all – from the serene to the extreme! This exclusive resort style waterpark is going to be something your entire family can appreciate and enjoy, whether you want to splash and slide all day or curl up on the beach with a good book. We’ve added lights so Aquatica will be open earlier and stay open later than the prior waterpark! We’ve even operate further into the year (through October), which gives even more opportunities to enjoy this incredible place. See you soon!
Over the past few weeks we have been taking a virtual blog journey towards Aquatica. When last we blogged we discussed The Overlook of this new amazing waterpark. Today we're going to learn about Aquatica’s Plaza.
Inside our main plaza there will be lots happening at all times of the day. Once you've passed the overlook, you'll follow a path towards our plaza. The Plaza will serve as a ticket area, gift shop/market area as well as park entrance and exit.
These never released artist renderings give you an idea of what this area will look like.
The first part of the plaza that guest will encounter a gift shop. This shop is multifaceted and multipurpose. It will contain all the sundry items you might need (such as sunscreen, bathing suits and sunglasses) as well as Aquatica souvenirs! During your day at Aquatica, you'll probably encounter some of our park photographers. They will be stationed throughout the waterpark to help you capture amazing memories. When you head out for the day, you'll be able to view and purchase these photos here as well.
We'll have Guest Services, ticket windows and kiosks in this area for those who haven’t purchased tickets or passes to Aquatica prior to arriving and our turnstiles leading into the area will be at the far end of the plaza. This area is where we will greet you in the morning and tell you goodbye, and come back soon when you head home. In between we hope you make amazing memories with your family.
We are just weeks away from Aquatica’s opening; learn more about what is happening everyday at Aquatica’s Facebook page!
^^Nice update and pictures, Adam. So I'm assuming that the Aquatica in San Antonio is not as big as the Aquatica in Orlando, FL....or are they about the same in size and offer the same amount of rides and attractions???
