    Which one of these water parks gets your vote? We have not visited either one and would like your advice.

    Thanks!

    Unless you have teens, easily Aquatica.

    I have been to both and really came away underwhelmed with each park. I would suggest doing Disney's Blizzard Beach or Typhoon Lagoon.

    If I absolutely had to choose between the two, I would choose Wet N Wild.

    Aquatica is much better than any other water offering in Orlando or Central Florida for that matter. Their slides are way more modern than anything else other offerings supply.

    I didn't get to go to Aquatica last visit bc my plans changed but I have been to WNW. It was fun but nothing special, just water slides. Aquatica looks awesome - it's new/fresh and the animals look really cool/unique!

    We thought Aquatica was ok- the only animals were the Commersons dolphins (and they were really cute).

    If you want the added touch of animals, choose aquatica.
    If you want the thrill, choose wet n wild.

    Aquatica has a much nicer atmosphere..and is similar to Typhoon if you've only done the Disney waterparks.

    While Wet N Wild isn't as big, it has some very awesome slides. Disco H2O, Brain Wash, the Bomb Bay, and the Black Hole are not to be missed!

    Both parks have great kids areas.

    Rumor has it that both waterparks will be adding new attractions in 2014...

    Aquatica is leap and bounds cleaner than the Disney parks. Roa Rapids is a blast. Easily worth more than an hour of your stay at the park.

    Yes- what you see is THE aquarium- I'm not complaining, I really thought there would be more animals there being a SeaWorld park and all.
