^Some of the "ice bergs" will actually be enormous Air Wicks.

The water for the penguins to swim in will actually be Febreeze.

The engineering nerd/theme park nerd in me totally just had a major gasm and I might need some more tissues. Seriously, great detail photos of everything this ride has to offer. All the planning that it looks like is going into this ride, it's going to make this ride and whole area AMAZING! I can't wait to get back out to Florida to tackle penguins. Can you tackle penguins in this new area? Can you pet them or feed them? If not, it's still going to be an incredible expansion!

Today Theme Park Review was invited to celebrate the 5th Anniversary of Aquatica Orlando! The day's festivities were brief but fun with some dancing, some animals, cake, raffle prizes for the general guests and much more! Be sure to watch the video below for a look at the "birthday" ceremony, a Laughing Kookabura laughing (yes, it reads exactly as I mean it to) and an interview with Park Vice President Bryan Nadeau.

This was a public celebration, so the park's guests were included in the festivities, starting with lots of dancing.

It wouldn't be an Aquatica event without some awesome animals!

New SyFy B-Movie in the making: Mini Croc!

Followed by Mini Croc vs. Mega Croc vs. Sharktopus!

Ever heard a Laughing Kookabura laugh? Watch the video and you too can joining me in saying that I have.

The Laughing Kookabura wanted to get in on picking raffle tickets for the guest prizes!

There was even a celebratory sale going on in the park's main gift shop.

In the spirit of the park's fifth anniversary, let's take a quick look at the park and some of the improvements that have been made since our last visit.

Shade structures have been added over the queues for Whanau Way and Omaka Rocka.

Roa's Rapids is still one of the neatest water attractions in all of Central Florida!

Taumata Racers is still one of the most thrilling...

It was a gorgeous day to be celebrating at Aquatica!

Hooroo Run never fails to produce some amazing facial expressions.

A Haystack Dryer was recently added to the park.

I've always been a fan of the way Tassie's Twisters were placed in the park.

And the star of the show is Dolphin Plunge, sending guests underwater into a tank featuring Commersons Dolphins.

I had another amazing day at Aquatica today! I've made it a point to revisit the park every year as it continues to grow and get even better!

If you haven't been yet, or haven't been in a while, come by to check out Aquatica Orlando--you won't be disappointed!

Those people were brave as it certainly wasn't 'water park weather' yesterday or this weekend!

I can't believe it's been five years already! The park is looking good though. One of these days I'll have to visit during the warmer months so I can go.
