Aquatica San Antonio Names New Attraction

Groundbreaking Ceremony for the Aviary
Aquatica San Antonio's latest addition now has an official name:  Roa's Aviary.  The new attraction will contain more than 300 friends of Papa (a spoonbill), seen above at the official groundbreaking ceremony for the expansion.  Roa's Aviary is scheduled to open at the park, which sits adjacent to SeaWorld San Antonio, in May 2014.

Concept Art for the Aviary
Roa's Aviary is being constructed adjacent to the water park's lazy river, named Loggerhead Lane.  Visitors will actually be able to pass through the Aviary while floating on the river - but can also enter through a brand new wading pool with an elaborate water fall.  Roa's Aviary will cover 13,500 square feet and contain over 50 species of birds.

In addition to enjoying the calm setting of the area, guests will also be able to partake in educational programs and feed the birds, as well.
