#WaterparkWednesday – Aquatica Orlando’s Ray Rush opens to the public on May 12

Ray Rush, Aquatica Orlando’s anticipated new attraction will be making its grand debut to park guests on Saturday, May 12. The new attraction promises to be a fully-loaded water adventure which will combine three unique slide elements, never before seen at Aquatica, into one action-packed attraction the entire family can enjoy together.

At nearly 60 feet tall, Ray Rush is where family and friends can take on three exciting thrills as they slide, splash and soar like never before. First, riders will be launched with water jets designed to propel rafts into the first of several enclosed tube sections. Next, riders will swirl into the giant sphere. Finally, riders will drop into an open-air halfpipe that resembles the shape of a manta ray before ending with a splash. Ray Rush will have a height requirement of 42” to appeal to families with children and will accommodate up to four riders per raft.

The park announced the addition of Ray Rush this past October. The new slide is located on the north side of the park next to Walkabout Waters. A neighboring attraction which was temporarily closed to accommodate the construction of Ray Rush, Walhalla Wave, reopened this past weekend.
