Video: SeaWorld releases first preview footage for Aquatica San Diego water park

SeaWorld has released its first video preview of Aquatica San Diego, the new water park that will be installed on the site of Knott's Soak City in Chula Vista in 2013.

The company acquired the former Cedar Fair property last month, announcing plans to convert it into a third Aquatica park in the US. It will undergo extensive renovations during the off-season, in order to install some of SeaWorld's signature marine life exhibits alongside the existing Soak City water attractions.

The preview video, embedded below, offers little hint as to what the signature attractions at Aquatica San Diego will be, instead being largely made up of stock footage of existing attractions. However, it does suggest that a flamingo exhibit will form part of the park's line-up.

Few details have been released of Aquatica San Diego, although it is expected to be similar in style to the original Aquatica in Orlando and Aquatica San Antonio, which opened in May 2012. Located around 20 miles from SeaWorld San Diego, it will be promoted as a companion park with combo-ticket deals.

SeaWorld has set itself a challenging deadline to complete the conversion, having spent a full year converting the former Lost Lagoon water park at SeaWorld San Antonio into the second Aquatica park. Aquatica San Diego is expected to incorporate most or all of the existing Knott's Soak City attractions, including a 500,000 gallon wave pool, several sets of body slides and a 1,250-foot lazy river.
