  • The food is actually pretty cool, but overpriced. They don't allow any type of food into the park, which is reasonable. The rides are fun but lines are usually long and take at least 15 minutes of waiting to get in the ride. Doesn't sound like much, but standing in the wind while wet can suck. Lockers start at $13 so try to bring very little of you can. Parking also starts at $15 so be wary of that as well. My biggest tip is to come as prepared as possible. Wear a windproof top if allowed. Buy some super cheap slippers or water shoes as the ground you walk on can get so hot it can burn your feet. Manage your hair by tying it up or putting it in a ponytail or whatever you do, they don't allow hats in rides really. Get something to hold your glasses to your head if you really need glasses Obviously bring extra clothes and a towel because you will need one and wouldn't wanna pay $22 for one. Bring anything you would to a beach to Aquatica generally. Other than all that, Aquatica does a great job of providing fun water-based rides and attractions. They have some iconic rides and a super interactive and kid-friendly area in the center of the park.
  • love this during the summer season. there's a good variety of water adventures to try. I love the ones I tried. Especially the one that there's 4 of you riding a giant floater, anx you'll slide on a giant and long slide. 😃 Another one is you lay on a mat on your stomach, then you slide from a very high slide! 😉 I recommend getting the lowest price ticket they can offer, cause you don't really need those VIP packages and stuff to make the most of what the water park can offer.
