The new water slide at Aquatica, Sea World’s water park in Orlando, is now open. Omaka Rocka is the first expansion at Aquatica. The ride shares a loading platform with Whanua Way near the wave pools, and features funnels and half pipe action in rafts built for two.

The height requirement for Omaka Rocka is 48 inches.

The new Aquatica Water Park ride will send a pair of guests in a two-seater tube through a set of three tunnels that will replicate the half-pipe experience. Riders will slide up one part of the slide and get a sensation of near weightlessness. They’ll come down that side and back up another, in what SeaWorld officials are calling a vertical thrills experience.
