Hi Dolphin mad . We are just back and went to aquatica . Thought this park was lovely . There has been a lot of reports of it being very busy but we did not find this to be the case and no busier than any of the other parks . Most of the rides are not extreme so all ages can go on but if you like extreme rides then this would not suit . The dolphin slide is a bit of a disappointment , you shoot down the slide so quickly that you do not see anything . You do see the dolphins in the viewing area and also leaping out of the water . Food is ok and they have a buffet cafe with the options of all day all you can eat or one visit all you can eat aprox $20 or $13 usual burgers,hotdogs, salad . Ally

If you read the hype, you'll be disappointed. if you are goind for the "wildlife" you will be disappointed. If you go for a nice family day out at the water park with somethign for all ages you'll ahve a really nice day

Have you been to Seaworld? If you love dolphins and marine life, Seaworld is the place for you! They have a dolphin nursery, and an area where you can feed dolphins, and an underwater viewing are-we love that park-dolphins, sharks, penguins, sea lions, etc. They of course also have Shamu, and great shows1

We went on Wednesday. Even at 09.00 it was really busy. I would definitely recommend giving it a miss, unless you are prepared to stand in line for 30 minutes per ride. There were to few chairs, with people having to sit wherever they could find a space. Today they were turning people away, as the park full signs were up, when we drove past.

The park is too small and isn't a patch on the Disney variety.

We have visited Orlando several times and have decided, for future visits, to stick with Disney. They are a different class.

In my opinion it's a good waterpark, but that's all. Definitely don't go there to see marine life. For that, you can go to SeaWorld, or if you can afford it, Discovery Cove.

I feel that Aquatica is worth going to, but also that most other parks in Orlando should be given a higher priority. The slides are your basic water park slides. Six different slides - there is a tube slide, a "toilet bowl" slide, two family raft slides, a mat slide, and the infamous dolphin slide, which should basically just be considered a body slide because the dolphins really aren't part of the attraction - you can't even see them. There is a short lazy river that flows next to a fish tank, and a fast river. There are two wave pools. If you want to do a water park in my opinion both Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach are better.

We visited Aquatica several times over a three week period at the end of May beginning of June this year. We always managed to get a great spot right next to the water but this may have been because we always made sure we got there half an hour before the park opened.

In our opinion Aquatica is better than the Disney waterparks but on saying that we do not like big fast slides which is what alot of people like about TL and BB. Aquatica has lovely surroundings, a great wave pool and brilliant kids area. I think its a great family park with something for all ages!

I would recommend it to anyone its worth visit!
