2. Slip and slide your way through Summer at Aquatica

Aquatica, SeaWorld’s Waterpark is not to be missed whilst in Orlando. It was recently voted the USA’s No 1 Waterpark AND became a Certified Autism Centre; its the perfect place to cool off from the Florida sunshine. Float on the lazy river, slide and soar on Ray Rush, the park’s latest ride or let your little ones have fun in the splash zones. We can’t wait to experience their newest thrill-ride KareKare Curl opening later in the spring!

3. Take on the world's tallest river rapid drop - Infinity Falls

Journey past drenching waterfalls to unearth the secrets of this lost rainforest river. You’d better hold on tight, because those roaring rapids might just send you plummeting over a huge drop into the churning white-water below…
