It’s going to be a sunny, Spring weekend, and there are a lot of fun options if you would like to be On the Go in the Parks this weekend!
Before we head into the park events, let’s talk about a new slide racing into Aquatica Orlando!
Riptide Race at Aquatica Orlando
The all-new Riptide Race has opened at Aquatica Orlando as the world’s tallest dueling racer!
For those over 42″ tall, it all starts atop a 68-foot tower, where racers will grab a two-person raft before racing through 650 feet of slide, with low walls to keep an eye on your opponent.
It’s a dash to the splash as racers compete in this side-by-side raft run through high-speed tunnels, twists, and turns.
