Aquatica Texas - Opening In 2012

Sea World San Antonio has announced the addition of a new water park for their 2012 season, named Aquatica Texas.  The new, separate admission water park will "feature exciting rides, amazing landscape, wide open white sand beaches and of course sea life – all in a beachfront resort setting."  The water park will be an upgrade to the general admission to Sea World San Antonio, and a totally separate ticket for Aquatica only will not be offered.

The park's current water area, Lost Lagoon - seen above, will be replaced by Aquatica.  The park will keep some of the rides from the current area, but also add several new ones increasing the park's size by several acres.

Two attractions will be definite highlights of Aquatica Texas.  Stingray Falls will be a family raft slide that will pass through both open and enclosed sections, then take passengers on a slow moving river that will take them underneath the stingray pool, allowing them to view the animals from underneath.

The Wahalla Wave will be the first of its kind in North America.  Guests will plunge down a drop and then up a vertical wall that will give them a zero-g sensation.  A nice overview of the park has been created in this video from the park:

 A new site has been launched for the park, and Sea World San Antonio's blog has plenty of information, too.
