Aquatica Orlando celebrates its 15th Birthday with new Additions and Events

Aquatica Orlando first opened to the public back on March 1, 2008, and this year the water park is celebrating its 15th Birthday with a number of major new additions, and special events to celebrate.

Voted the nation’s #1 Outdoor Water Park according to the USA Today 10Best Reader’s Choice Awards, Aquatica is set to open Turi’s Kid Cove this Spring.

Turi’s Kid Cove

This ALL-NEW water play area will feature watering palms, tipping buckets, spraying jets, water bobbles, and more. Plus, kids can grab a tube and slide into fun on the ALL-NEW Tamariki Twirl water slide featuring a pint-sized half pipe just for them!

This new play area will be located between Big Surf Shores and Mango Market and will be the perfect place for our youngest guests to cool off with plenty of splashy water fun and ample seating all around for rest and relaxation.

Turi’s Kid Cove is not the only ALL-NEW addition coming to Aquatica Orlando in 2023.

Aloha To Summer

Welcoming Summer with excitement every Saturday & Sunday in May, Aquatica Orlando is introducing an ALL-NEW event to kick off summer in style and extended park hours until 8 pm.
