On Friday the 6th, SeaWorld Parks and Resorts teased an expansion to their flagship water park, Aquatica in Orlando.

When Aquatica first opened in 2008, Kevin Yee reviewed Aquatica for MiceChat and said, “They need more rides, and more varieties of rides.” Since the Grand Opening of Aquatica by SeaWorld Orlando, they opened their first expansion in 2010 with the opening of Omacka Rocka.  Now, opening in 2014, SeaWorld has teased that they will be building a slide 105 feet tall, making it the tallest water slide of it’s kind in Orlando.  Further details of the expansion will have to wait, because that is all SeaWorld is releasing for the time being.

Where will this expansion go?  Over the past few months SeaWorld has been surveying and preparing an area for major construction right along International Drive. SeaWorld will to have to reroute the current Exit Road.  This addition will also make way for future expansions at Aquatica.
