SeaWorld has revealed the ticket pricing structure for Aquatica San Diego, the new water park that is due to open to the public on June 1, 2013. Aquatica San Diego has taken over the former Knott's Soak City site in Chula Vista, and will feature a broadly identical range of attractions. However, prices will be significantly higher, with an adult ticket costing $38 (up from $32.99) and child tickets priced at $30 (up from $22.99).
The chain's third Aquatica park is designed to complement nearby SeaWorld San Diego. The former Cedar Fair property has undergone extensive renovations over the winter, in order to install some of SeaWorld's signature marine life exhibits alongside the existing Soak City water attractions.
The most significant update is to the park's lazy river, now known as Loggerhead Lane. Guests will float around a 1,250-foot circuit, taking in views of more than a dozen Caribbean flamingos.
The Chula Vista site covers 67 acres, although Aquatica San Diego only occupies 17 of these. The others are likely to be reserved for future expansion, with SeaWorld likely to add more unique attractions alongside the fairly generic water slides in its current line-up.
