Aquatica Ray Rush

Aquatica Orlando’s newest attraction, Ray Rush, will make its debut on Saturday, May 12th. This featured water slide combines three components that have not been done before at Aquatica.  Ray Rush is sure to be an outstanding family adventure that will leave guests ready to ride again. 

At nearly 60 feet tall, Ray Rush provides an opportunity for family and friends to 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” for this all-new water slide to appeal to families with children and will accommodate up to four riders per raft.

Aquatica announced the addition of Ray Rush in October 2017. The new water slide is located on the north side of the park next to Walkabout Waters.  Walhalla Wave, which was temporarily closed to accommodate the construction of Ray Rush, reopened this past weekend.
