Aquatica was designed with families in mind, from kid's play areas to the family bathrooms and first aid center, all family needs are centrally located. This makes it easy for parents to create a meeting place for their children when they arrive at the park. It is a good idea to communicate this central meeting place with your family before your day of fun starts. This is especially important because it will become a place your kids will know they can find you in case they get lost. Water isn’t only for play Make sure everyone stays hydrated. Kids often get distracted playing in the water all day and don’t recognize how thirsty they are. Make sure they are drinking at least 6-8 ounces of water or juice every couple of hours. Measure before you wait Some of the slides at Aquatica have height restrictions. When the park is busy, Aquatica makes it easy for families with young kids to determine exactly which slides are safe to ride before they wait in line. Aquatica team members will measure the height of younger guests to determine which color wristband they should wear. On days measuring is not being done at the entrance, guests can take their kids to concierge cabana at any time to get measured and given a wristband. Ride regulation signs have the corresponding wristband colors on them, so it is easy to determine which rides children qualify to ride and helps ensures safety for your kids Banana Beach Cookout This is a great meal deal at Aquatica. It’s an all-you-care-to-eat-all-day buffet where your family can get breakfast, lunch and dinner. These meals include an entree, side and a drink.
