SeaWorld's Aquatica Waterpark Set to Make a Splash This Summer | Opening June 1st

May 14, 2013

Just minutes from SeaWorld,  Aquatica San Diego, like its sister parks in San Antonio and Orlando, will feature guest experiences from serene to extreme, with water play as endless as the sea itself, and will be home to a variety of exotic animals, providing an educational component to a waterpark visit that is both unexpected and enriching.  Aquatica SeaWorld’s Waterpark in San Diego will be located at 2052 Entertainment Circle in Chula Vista and is scheduled to open June 1, 2013.  The park will feature water slides, a wave pool, a white sandy beach, and so much more, ready to keep customers cool when San Diego gets hot.

Formerly Knott's Soak City, Aquatica San Diego will be a lushly landscaped waterpark with up-close animal experiences, high speed thrills and the amenities of a beachside resort.  Among dozens of slides and rides at this whimsical, South Seas-themed waterpark will be Big Surf Shores - one of the largest wave pools in Southern California, featuring more than 500,000 gallons of water to take a swim in and a huge sandy beach for basking in the sun. Adventurers will also want to check out HooRoo Run, where they’ll have a choice of two enclosed and two open-air slides that take them down an 80-foot descent. Caribbean flamingos and freshwater turtles will round out the experience, as only SeaWorld can.  There will be rides and attractions to accommodate all ages.

Admission to Aquatica will be $38 for ages 10 and older and $30 for ages 3–9.  Membership packages for both SeaWorld California and Aquatica are available and start at $190.
