Best Attractions & Activities: One of the city's most unique water parks, SeaWorld's Aquatica is a fantastical world of twisting, turning rides, colorfully quirky buildings and sparkling white sand beaches. And if you enjoy a side of terror with your water-park fun, be sure to check out Ihu's Breakaway Falls. This towering slide, which opened in 2014, is an eight-story mind-bender of a plummet that is not for the faint of heart. The less adrenaline-addicted will still find plenty of fun splashing from one giant wave pool to another or drifting down the lazy river through a vibrant aquatic world of exotic fish. You can zoom through an underwater tube slide alongside a playful pod of black-and-white Commerson's dolphins, as well.
Best Theme Parks: This park has its share of thrills in the form of rapids and half-pipes and bullet-fast water chutes but what makes it truly special is its wildlife (in particular, its stars: the Commerson's dolphins) and the serene and playful ways in which visitors can observe it. Walkabout Waters and Kata's Kookaburra Cover are ideal for the littlest in your party while thrill seekers might opt for Omaka Rocka or the Dolphin Plunge, Aquatica's most popular ride. And when you're ready to relax, hit the "beach." You can even splurge on one of the park's premium private cabanas.
