New waterslide ‘Ray Rush' opens at SeaWorld's Aquatica

Posted at 1:43 PM, May 16, 2018

ORLANDO, Fla. - A brand-new family raft slide has officially splashed down at Aquatica, SeaWorld’s waterpark!

Ray Rush is a fully-loaded water adventure which combines three unique slide elements, never before seen at Aquatica, into one action-packed attraction the entire family can enjoy together.

The nearly 60-foot tall attraction brings family and friends together as they take on three exciting slide elements in rafts that seat up to four riders. 

First, riders will be launched with powerful water jets designed to propel the rafts into the first of several enclosed tube sections. 

Next, riders enter a giant translucent sphere, rocking back and forth as waves of water swirl around them. 

Finally, riders will drop into the attraction’s signature element, an open-air halfpipe that resembles the shape of a manta ray.

Ray Rush is now officially open and you must be 42" tall to ride. 

The new slide is located next to Walkabout Waters on the north side of the park. The Walhalla Wave family raft slide, which was temporarily closed to accommodate the construction of Ray Rush, has also reopened. 

Aquatica Orlando is open daily, year-round. For more information, park hours and to purchase tickets, click here.
