|GENERAL PARK INFORMATION|
BEAT THE HEAT AT AQUATICA: With rising summer temperatures throughout the season, Aquatica SeaWorld’s WaterparkTM has plenty of ways to keep guests cool. Among lushly landscaped attractions with high-speed thrills and the amenities of a beachside resort at this whimsical, South Seas-themed waterpark is one of the largest wave pools in Southern California: Big Surf ShoresTM, featuring more than 500,000 gallons of water guests may swim in and a huge sandy beach to bask in the sun. Guests may also cool off at nearly a dozen other slides and rides, including Loggerhead Lane, a 1,250-foot-long lazy river; and Walhalla Wave, a 78-foot ride that families can enjoy together. Up-close animal experiences with beautiful Caribbean flamingos and freshwater turtles round out this experience — as only SeaWorld® can.
