Universal's Volcano Bay

The newest entry into the Orlando water park field is Universal's Volcano Bay. It has quickly made a big impression, with its towering volcano and cascading water slides clearly visible off of I-4.

Blizzard Beach  

Disney visitors have long been able to take a break from the regular hustle and bustle of other theme parks at Blizzard Beach. The water park features a one-acre wave pool and a white sand beach. 

Mount Gushmore features one of the world's tallest and fastest waterslides. There are several activities offered throughout the summer at Blizzard Beach that are based off Disney's "The Incredibles 2." 

Typhoon Lagoon

Disney's other water park, Typhoon Lagoon, also offers the opportunity to glide down a lazy river or take on several exhilarating water slides. If relaxation is your thing, layout and catch a tan on their sandy beach. 

If you are on a quest for adventure, load the entire family on a raft and get swept away in a true white-water voyage with Miss Adventure Falls. One thing that makes Typhoon Lagoon particularly exciting during the summer is that it is the seasonal residence of Disney characters, Lilo and Stich.

Aquatica is one of two Orlando water parks run by Sea World. There are 42 slides, rivers and lagoons to take advantage of on the 84,000 square foot property. 

Aquatica's Breakaway Falls is the tallest, steepest and only multi-drop tower slide in town. Their newest ride, Ray Rush, is a family raft experience that has three different ways to slide, splash and soar. 

Discovery Cove

Discovery Cove is also a Sea World property and the only water park that lets you get in touch with nature. They are best known as the place you can swim with dolphins, but they also offer opportunities to feed tropical birds and swim with rays.
