SeaWorld Orlando's water park aims to combine the chain's traditional marine life exhibits with the usual array of water slides, lazy rivers and wave pools. The majority of the attractions at the park, which features a South Pacific theme, could have been lifted from just about any water park. The Dolphin Plunge water slide and Loggerhead Lane lazy rivers, though, are both designed to offer views of Aquatica's Commerson's dolphins.
Aquatica was the third park to open at the SeaWorld Orlando resort (after SeaWorld Orlando itself and Discovery Cove), and the first ever water park to be developed by the chain. While it surpassed expectations in terms of attendance, many guests complained that the promised blend of marine life exhibits and water rides hadn't quite been pulled off. Nevertheless, SeaWorld has reused the template for a second Aquatica park at SeaWorld San Antonio.
