SeaWorld San Diego's New Aquatica Waterpark

This weeks cloudy days opened up to a beautiful sunny San Diego day for a preview of the summer fun at SeaWorld San Diego's New Aquatica Waterpark. We were greeted by Kat Danganan, a member of the Aquatica PR Team. She gave us a souvenir towel, vouchers for lunch, told us a bit about the park, helped the boys get their wrist bands on, and onto the water park we went! 

Scheduled to open this weekend, Aquatica SeaWorld’s Waterpark in San Diego not only has a 500,000 gallon wave pool and several water slides over 60 feet tall, but also dozens of Caribbean flamingos and freshwater turtles guests can view up-close and personal. All SeaWorld parks offer guests a variety of up-close experiences, from animal encounters, to thrilling rides and spectacular shows, Aquatica does no less!

My boys and I had a great time at Aquatica today! Their favorite spot at Aquatica was the Slippity Dippity which is a toddler friendly area with several water slides and waterfalls. It was just their size and they felt comfortable to go down the waterslides which landed in a pool about a foot deep.

A favorite of mine was Big Surf Shores which is one of the largest wave pools in Southern California with swells of up to five feet. The wave pool was surrounded by a white sandy beach where guests can relax on lawn chairs or in nearby cabanas. With each of my boys at my side, the jumped and crashed into the waves each time. It was so much fun!

My boys are not swimmers so the complimentary life vests, in all sizes, which can be found throughout the park for guests to use, were helpful to keep my boys water safe!

Polynesian dancers, a tropical band, and steel drum players we scattered throughout the park which added to the summer feel to the park! The interactive performances had guests dancing too!

After playing in the water, my kids were hungry! Aquatica has a wide variety of food options! They have everything you could want. From Pulled Pork Carnitas Tacos with Cilantro Slaw, to Mandarin Orange Chicken, Scallions and Chow Mein Noodles, Double Cheeseburgers, Baked Chicken Alfredo Pasta, or Crispy Calamari, they have it all! Our favorite was the Fried Chicken & Funnel Cake with Maple Syrup! Yummo!
