When you think about record-high new COVID-19 cases in Florida, you probably also think: Water parks!
That's why SeaWorld is here to quench your thirst for poolside fun by reopening Aquatica Orlando, a place filled with water and children. Beginning Thursday, July 2, the park will resume operation seven days a week.
Naturally, many will be eager to race to the park so they can swim with (in?) the juices of others, so "for a limited time," Aquatica is discounting tickets by more than 40 percent off of the regular admission price. Because everything is fine.
Earlier Friday, Walt Disney World published a list of canceled special events, tours and dining experiences that will no longer be available when their parks open on July 11 and 15. Aquatica also posted a new webpage explaining why their water park is safe enough.
Aquatica guests can purchase tickets (but should you?) online at: Aquatica.com/orlando/tickets.
