As guests slide through eye-catching, translucent cutouts and rings and twist and turn through over 330 feet of fiberglass, they will spot a vibrant array of marine life in the new dynamic habitat. Animals include Commerson’s dolphins, leopard sharks, sardines and a variety of other cold-water fish will call the new attraction home.

SeaWorld confirmed the new experience will be an update to the former Dolphin Plunge attraction at the park.

“2022 is going to be an exciting year for Aquatica Orlando. Aquatica was voted the No. 1 waterpark in the USA because guests love our year-round operations, one-of-a-kind attractions and laid-back beach vibe.” said Kyle Miller, park president. “We are thrilled to announce that the country’s best waterpark is adding new enhancements for an even greater guest experience and we cannot wait to unveil Reef Plunge next spring.”
