Sea World is building a Water Park - "AQUATICA" !
Sea World is finally building a water park to rival Orlando's "Big Three" of Wet N Wild, Blizzard Beach, and Typhoon Lagoon. Sea World will be making their move in the form of AQUATICA - a tremendous, 59 acre water theme park that will combine up-close marine animal experiences with thrilling water slides and an enormous 80,000 square foot man-made beach. Sea World Aquatica will have 36 water slides, six sparkling pools and lagoons, and exotic marine animals and tropical flora from all over the world. Aquatica is slated to open its doors one year from now, in March of 2008. Sea World Aquatica will be highlighted by a first-of-its-kind 300-foot water slide, featuring a 42-foot drop, that will take riders in clear tubes underwater through an actual dolphin habitat. You have to take a look at the artwork and pictures to see what I'm talking about - Aquatica looks unreal! I was told that private cabanas and waiters will be available on the beach, and due to the large amount of rides, the lines will be very short. It seems to me that the people at Sea World know what they're doing, and are trying to make Aquatica stand out from all the rest. As far as I'm concerned, it always does, and I cannot wait until 2008!
