Introducing Aquatica - 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 our incredible signature ride - two awesome, enclosed tube slides that send you speeding through a lively lagoon filled with playful Commerson's dolphins. Delight in the serene-to-extreme waters in the gigantic double wave pools and soak in the sun (or the cooling shade) on the white sand beach. Aquatica is where the fun is as endless as the sea itself.

Winding rivers throughout Aquatica also offer two different journeys from serene to extreme. One river carries guests through gentle waterfalls, past exotic birds and into and undersea grotto with thousands of colourful fish. An adjacent river offers pure thrill, jetting riders through rolling rapids, rushing geysers and racing waters. Colorful eight lane racing slides, triple drop raft rides, double inner tubes and a six story family ride round out the mix of thrills.
Crush 'N' Gusher "water coaster" is the newest attraction located in the new Hideaway Bay section of Disney's Typhoon Lagoon. Themed around an abandoned and decaying tropical fruit processing center, this thrill ride is unique to North America. Guests ride in two or three person rafts, choosing between three different slides, the "Banana Blaster", "Coconut Crusher" or "Pineapple Plunger", that range from 410 to 420 feet (125 to 128 m) long.
The 59-acre park (about one third the size of the original SeaWorld) will open in March 2008, visitor numbers expected to be limited to around 7,500 per day.
The park will contain 6 Pools & Lagoons, 36 Slides, 80,000 sq ft of beach. While not being the biggest water park in Florida it will have the highest attraction capacity of any water park in Florida with an emphasis on a comfortable guest experience.
