Invertalon Posted October 26, 2011 Share Posted October 26, 2011 Photos below from our visit to Aquatica and Discovery Cove. Both amazing parks, and we look forward to returning each time we go back down to Florida. Not a big TR writer, so on to the pics: For more, higher resolution photos check out my Flickr page: http://www.flickr.com/photos/invertalon/sets/ Aquatica! This are so fun, especially this model. Beautiful Beaches. The normal slides have excellent air on the last drop, especially with two people. The smaller funnel tubes are alright, not the biggest fan of them. Signage Viewing for the Dolphin Plunge. The effect is not noticeable at all. Love the landscaping. The integrated fish displays along this river are a nice touch. Best lazy river ever. It is a "speed river", no tubes allowed. You basically get pushed at high speeds all around the loop. It is fun just to "foot surf" along the river. You will encounter rapids and fountains along the way. Kids area. One of two wave pools. Nap time Another day, when we got in for "early entry". They don't have one, but let us in early anyway. Had the place to ourselves for a solid hour and half with no waits. Toilet bowls Midway wee Airtime! Many times we totally lost it at this point and would have quite a rough "landing" Great slides! Speed river once again... You can also get life-vests and just float around. I wish more parks would get these rivers. They totally kill normal lazy rivers. Always fun to beat your fastest time! For guys out there, the best method to prevent "damage" during this part is raising slightly with your knees to lift your body. Prevents any pain. Safety First! This drop is awesome though. Totally surprised me. Next stop.. Lobby Inside Beautiful, of course. White sand beaches all over. Water is freezing, but the wet suit helps a bit. As well as the free unlimited beer. This was the lazy/exploration river... No fish, but it is warmer temp then the fish exhibit. They brought out various animals throughout the day. Including this owl. Very cool to snorkel around in this exhibit. I really enjoyed the entire day and felt it was worth it! Food was great as well they served throughout the day. One of the snack bars... Free ice cream, snacks, beer, soft pretzels, etc.. It's awesome. There is an aviary you can walk through as well. He was very chatty Dinner time! Colddd Oh yes, they had dolphins too.. Of course. They had about 2 minutes with the dolphin it seemed. We did not add on the Dolphins, and just did everything else. Much cheaper to do it this way. Live entertainment was nice! The rays were great... So fun to be able to interact with them. This concludes the TR! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
