Aquatica® Slides and Pools

No-one comes to a waterpark to stay dry--the only question is how do you want to get wet? Aquatica® provides thrilling waterslides, lazy river rides, and gigantic wave pools to fill all your watery dreams. Chief among the rides are:

  • The Dolphin Plunge. Hands down the most popular ride in the park, the dolphin plunge is a thrilling ride through pitch black tubes and past the Commerson's dolphin habitat.
  • Ihu’s Breakaway Falls. A scream-inducing watery free fall, Ihu’s is the steepest multi-drop tower in Orlando, and sure to get your adrenaline pumping.
  • KareKare Curl. Opening in 2019, Aquatica’s newest attraction sends tube-riders rocketing up a vertical wave wall for a weightless experience.6-things-to-do-orlando-aquatica-sunset-360X360.jpg
  • Loggerhead Lane. Looking for a quieter, lazier ride? Loggerhead Lane is a slow river tube ride that offers underwater views of the park’s aquarium residents, including the Commerson’s Dolphins.
  • Tassie’s Twisters. Ride a tube down into a giant bowl and spin to the bottom, where you're ejected into a lazy river.
  • Taumata Racer. Feeling competitive? Why not launch yourself into one of the Taumata Racer’s eight colorful tubes and race down to a splash pool?
  • Ro’s Rapids. Challenge the white waters in this family-friendly thrill ride.
Aquatica’s Double Wave Pools
Aquatica® Orlando has two side-by-side wave pools--enormous lagoons where the waves are always rolling. Cutback Cove offers extreme action, while Big Surf Shores ranges from high surf to slow and easy waves. Aquatica® typically has one pool open at a time, with the second pool open seasonally.
Kids and Aquatica®
Kata’s Kookaburra Cove and Walkabout Waters offers little ones splash pools, water spouts, and age appropriate body slides. Kids and adults alike love the underwater viewing areas for the park’s main attractions--four unique black and white Commerson’s dolphins. These playful dolphins, which can often be seen swimming upside down, are the only Commerson’s in captivity in the United States.

Aquatica® is committed to ensuring everyone in the family enjoys their time at the waterpark and is the only water park in the world accredited as a Certified Autism Center.

Private Cabanas

For those who prefer relaxation and privacy, Aquatica® offers private cabanas--tiki-themed poolside hideaways. Aquatica’s private cabanas come in a variety of sizes and styles, and you can arrange to have breakfast, lunch and snacks delivered throughout the day.
