SeaWorld’s water park, Aquatica, is one of the most popular water parks and arguably one of the best. Found to the south of Downtown Orlando, close to SeaWorld, there are water slides that you may find at other water parks, but one of the biggest draws is the Dolphin Plunge slide, which will take you down a transparent tube that has dolphins swimming around you in the pool that surrounds the pool. The park is a huge 59 acres and features enjoyable attractions for all the family.
Blizzard Beach is a water park that is built around a ski-resort theme that makes it one of the most fun of the water parks in Florida to explore. The slides come down the mountain side next to white-sand beaches. You can enjoy Mount Gushmore, one of the world’s tallest and fastest water slides.
Typhoon Lagoon is a place that not only swimmers will love but surfers as well. The Typhoon Lagoon Surf Pool generates six foot swells using underwater turbines which are perfect for surfers of all abilities to hang 10 on. There are several good water slides in the park which include Crush ‘n’ Gusher and Humunga Kowabunga, which are perfect for older guests, and Storm and Bay for younger children. There is a rapids loop that goes around the park. There is also the option for guests to swim with sharks, stingrays and tropical fish in their Shark Reef attraction.
With a 200ft conical mountain, that periodically roars and lights up at night, Volcano Bay is one of the most recognisable of the water parks in Orlando. This water park is part of the Universal Resort in Orlando and offers a mix of lazy river and wave polls with a high speed ride such as the aqua coaster and a number of slides. With lockers on site and the option of wristbands that you can load with credit, you don’t have to worry about fetching your wallet every time you need a drink or snack.
