Orlando in August 

Water Park Paradise
Dear Guest,

It's hot, hot, hot EVERYWHERE, and here in Orlando our amazing water parks elevate swimming and water fun to new levels.  Why just "swim" when you can play with dolphins, go down water slides that are surrounded by snow-capped vistas, frolic in some of the biggest wave pools anywhere and climb to the top of water slides that seem to reach into the sky?  You can do it ALL while keeping your cool in Central Florida.  Read about some of these amazing options below:
Aquatica Dolphin Plunge
Aquatica Dolphin Plunge

SeaWorld's Aquatica is Filled with Water Thrills, Wonder & Adventure


Imagine a white sandy beach right in the middle of Orlando.  Imagine gliding through a tube and watching black and white Commerson's dolphins watching YOU.  Imagine floating around on a balmy day and watching the scenery drift by.  You don't have to imagine this any longer.  At SeaWorld's Aquatica you can experience all this and much more!


Plan to arrive early in the day to secure your very own spot on a white sandy beach.  Take your entire family on the "Hoo Roo", a raft ride that rushes down six stories and 600 feet of thrill enducing curves and tunnels.  Life guards will yell "Hoo Roo" and families are encouraged to yell "Hoo Roo" back before they are sent plummeting down the slide.  That "battle cry" may just help you forget what lies ahead.   You also won't want to miss the "Walhalia Wave." It's a triple-drop raft ride where riders can experience a sense of weightlessness as they raft down a 6-story, triple drop slide. 


For those seeking a gentler pace, the lazy river carries guests around and splits into a "Y".  One way takes guests past a grotto filled with thousands of colorful fish and another through a spectacular underwater view of the Commerson dolphin's habitat.


During your day at Aquatica, enjoy sampling from the assortment of eateries, restaurants and buffets. There's fun, excitement and wonder for guests of ALL ages and you will definitely want to return often.

Can dolphins really communicate with humans?  That's a belief that scientists have shared for quite some time.  Many swimmers over the ages swear that they have been rescued by these very intelligent creatures.  After participating in the "Dolphin Experience" you just may also believe that dolphins are some of the smartest animals in the world.

For the older adventurer, there's the Wave Pool Surf Lagoon where 4' waves continually roll across a huge 17,000 square foot pool.  Everyone can take a relaxing float through Florida's picturesque past with replicas of old boat docks, billboards and picture-perfect waterfalls on the Lazy River.
