Aquatica Orlando Rides & Attractions
Ihu’s Breakaway Falls™:
Get ready to brave Orlando’s tallest, steepest, and only multi-drop tower slide of its kind. At nearly 80-feet tall, Ihu’s Breakaway Falls is where you’ll face your fears and each other. Step into one of three breakaway boxes or test your bravery open slide, but just as thrilling. You’ll never know who’s going to breakaway first – and the anticipation of who drops next is part of the wild ride. Riders must be at least 48 inches tall (1.22m).
Showcasing the park’s most distinctive animals, Dolphin Plunge takes riders down 250 feet of clear tubes, underwater, and through Aquatica Orlando’s beautiful Commerson’s dolphin habitat. Guests who prefer to see these stunning black-and-white marine mammals without taking the plunge may sneak a peek at Dolphin Lookout. Riders must be at least 48 inches tall (1.22m).
Omaka Rocka is a waterslide taste of half-pipe, near-vertical thrills previously experienced only by daring skateboarders and snowboarders. Riders speed down flumes into massive funnels, sliding high up one side and then the other, rocking back and forth, feeling a sensation of near weightlessness. Coming out of the funnel, they’ll skim into a drenching splashdown and then find themselves wanting to do it all over again. Riders must be at least 48 inches tall (1.22m).
Big Surf Shores™ & Cutback Cove™:
Guests can catch a wave in the world’s only side-by-side wave pools capable of operating together or independently. Filled with a combined 860,000 gallons of water, these enormous wave pools deliver very different experiences. Cutback Cove produces crashing waves with 5-foot swells while Big Surf Shores creates gently-rolling surf.
This adventure river zips guests through 1,500 feet of rapids, past geysers and through waterfalls at a speed three to four times faster than a typical waterpark river.
For a slower pace, this lazy river floats guests through a spectacular underwater view of the Commerson’s dolphins, past exotic birds and through a beautiful 10,000-gallon habitat of hundreds of exotic fish.
For those who prefer life in the fast lane, Taumata Racer speeds riders down a 300-foot slide, in and out of tunnels and around a 360-degree turn before racing them across the finish line.
This eight-lane racing slide is named after a 300-foot hill in southern Hawke’s Bay, New Zealand. Taumata is short for the original 84-letter Maori name: Taumatawhakatangihangakoauauotameteaturipukakapikimaungahoronukupokaiwhenakitanata hu. The lengthy title translates roughly as, “The hilltop where Tamatea with big knees, conqueror of mountains, eater of land, traveler over land and sea, played his koauau to his beloved.” Riders must be at least 42 inches tall (1.07m).
Crikes! HooRoo Run rafters experience a sense of weightlessness as they soar down this 6-story, 250-foot, triple-drop water ride. The 7-foot-wide flume takes three riders at a time on a straight shot down — three times! While the popular Australian term “G’day” means hello, its counterpart “Hooroo” means quite the opposite. Riders must be at least 42 inches tall (1.07m).
This family raft ride splashes four guests at a time down six stories and through 600 feet of tunnels, twists and turns. The enclosed flume is on the same tower as HooRoo Run, but offers a slightly slower journey. Riders must be at least 42 inches tall (1.07m).
Adventurous rafters delight in the twirling sensations of this ride as they spin and splash through a tunnel and into a sparkling pool below. The 129-foot flume takes single or double inner tubes into a super bowl, spins riders around and drops them into Loggerhead Lane. Riders must be able to maintain proper riding position and hold on to handles unassisted.
Seated in double inner tubes, riders head down 5-story slides filled with thrilling drops, unexpected curves and cascading water curtains. At the top of the tower, guests may choose one of four colorful slides, each of which will send them down 340 feet and splash them into a crystal blue pool. Riders must be able to maintain proper riding position and hold on to handles unassisted.
This interactive water playground is 15,000 square feet of pure water excitement. This 60-foot-tall colorful water adventure is the perfect playground for kids to zip down slides and blast water cannons. Height restrictions vary by slide, guests should consult park signage or lifeguards for guidelines.
Kata’s Kookaburra Cove®:
