Sew World is a whimsical, one of a kind water park that’s only in Orlando and could only come from SeaWorld, where one river floats you through an undersea world of colorful fish and another races you into rolling rapids. Slides that spin and soak you, and the incredible signature ride – Dolphin Plunge, with two awesome, enclosed tube slides that send you speeding through a lively lagoon filled with playful, black and white Commerson’s dolphins. Especially for the little ones, there’s the huge water play area, Kata’s Kookaburra Cove! Play, in on or over the serene-to-extreme waters in the gigantic double wave pools, then soak in the sun (or the cooling shade) on the white sand beach.
SeaWorld knows water. So it’s not surprising that it has created a world-class water park. What might be surprising, however, is that Aquatica combines water park fun with opportunities to interact with animals.
The 59-acre park offers lots of rides for all ages and thrill levels amid a South Sea Islands atmosphere. Aquatica’s signature ride, Dolphin Plunge, features side-by-side body slides that shoot riders through a pool with black and white Commerson’s dolphins.
While the concept of “interacting with dolphins” sounds intriguing, the experience will be worth the wait. The slides begin in enclosed, opaque tubes and deliver fast, twisting rides in the dark. As riders enter the pool with the dolphins, the tubes change to clear acrylic.
