What's Aquatica Up To?

Though not yet officially announced, at least as far as I can tell, it seems Aquatica is planning some new slides for Spring 2010. The water park, located next to Sea World Orlando, has been closing the Whanau Way slide tower to work on the new project during weekdays.

The L.A. Times is reporting that the attractions will be new designs form Proslide. They look to be from the company's new Tantrum line of products, which have mini-Tornado funnels along the slide course.

Sea World pretty much leaked the names of the new slides on this press release, noting that the "Omaka Rocka thrills with high-speed tubes and massive half-pipe funnels that will have you sliding frontward and backward and climbing the walls."

The Whanau Way slide tower was built with an extra platform level on its structure, so we can only assume these additions have been planned for some time.
