Aquatica entrance

SeaWorld Orlando has revealed that a towering, 105 feet tall water slide will debut at its Aquatica water park in 2014.

The new addition will be "the tallest water thrill ride of its type in Orlando", according to SeaWorld. This suggests that it will be of a different kind to the Summit Plummet body slide at Disney's Blizzard Beach, which stands at 120 feet tall.

No other details were given by SeaWorld during the announcement, so fans will have to wait and see what exactly lies in store for them next year.

Aquatica debuted in March 2008, and aims to combine the SeaWorld 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.

Great news for Aquatica. Visiting just last week, the park very much lacks 'serious' thrill rides with Dolphin Plunge appearing to be the star of the show. The park is beautiful, but the addition of this slide should bring some thrill seeking life into the place. Definitely looking forward to this.
