Aquatica is a water park operated by SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment and located minutes from Orlando, Florida. The park opened in 2008 and is located across International Drive from SeaWorld’s main theme park. The park is themed to the southern Pacific and features Australian and New Zealand based mascots, music and ride names. In 2008 Aquatica in Orlando was ranked the fourth-most visited waterpark in the United States and eighth-most visited in the world. The park hosted approximately 950,000 guests. Aquatica’s unique features include Commerson's dolphin exhibit and a giant cichlid tank in the Loggerhead Lane lazy river. The Commerson's dolphin exhibit can also be observed from dry land and the dolphin plunge water slide. For locals an after 2:00pm pass can be purchased at the front gate for $47.99 for adults and $41.99 for children ages 3-9. As Orlando area residents we have went to Aquatica waterpark on multiple occasions. The first videos are from 8/13/2011 between 4:30pm and 8:00pm. Aquatica was less crowded as a result of rain earlier in the afternoon. The waterpark is large enough that it is difficult to ride all of the rides in one day. We had both of our kids with us and our oldest son is just over the 42 inch requirement to ride most of the Aquatica water slides. Some of Aquatica's slides require a height of 48 inches. Life jackets are required on almost all of the slides for kids less than 48 inches tall but Aquatica provides various life jacket sizes free of charge. We have not experienced a shortage of life jackets during our trips.
During our trip we used the GroPro HD Hero Naked attached to a GoPro Head Strap Mount. We were able to obtain 1080p video of our family without concern for damage to the camera. Other items that could be useful are the GoPro Hd Wrist Housing and GoPro Chest Mount Harness. I was happy with the head mount but will be looking into purchasing the extended battery.
