Orlando’s newest waterpark, Seaworld Aquatica, is expanding its park with a new slide, improved amenities, and new ticket packages that are sure to please Florida residents. Aquatica added a new slide called the Omaka Rocka, the water slide that represents the first expansion of Aquatica, SeaWorld’s water park. Inspired by the design of halfpipes at skateboard parks, the Omaka Rocka tube slide deposits riders in funnels designed to mimic the sensation that skateboarders feel in the half-pipe. Omake Rocka shares a loading platform with Whanau Way near the waves pools. Guests must be at least four feet tall to ride Omaka Rocka.

Other Upgrades

Aquatica also announced their special “After 2 p.m. Pass” deal for the rest of 2010. With no blackout dates, locals can capitalize on a great deal for summer afternoons, by paying just $2 more than the regular cost for an adult for one day. Other upgrades at Aquatica include premium cabanas between the two wave pools, which were installed with upgraded furniture in the private area. The cabanas include an all-day locker, up to 16 beverages, and ceiling fans to keep you cool in the Florida heat If you’re planning a group party, you can opt for the ultimate cabanas, which have been added between the two wave pools in the private area.
