Top Things to Do

Nothing says quality time like a family vacation, except for maybe screaming through white water rapids together or racing down 1,200 feet of slides to a splashy finish. These are just some of the ways you can better bond with your family while at one of Orlando’s many theme and water parks. Here are the 10 best family friendly water park rides in Orlando:

  1. Miss Adventure Falls – Orlando’s newest family water ride is Miss Adventure Falls at Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon. The recently revamped attraction takes families on a fast-paced, white-water adventure that will have you bonding and screaming in no time! On the 4-person raft ride you’ll shoot past Captain Mary Oceaneer’s many scattered treasures from around the world and even meet her co-captain, a parrot.
  2. Teamboat Springs – Gather your “team” and take a ride on the world’s longest group whitewater raft ride, Teamboat Springs at Disney’s Blizzard Beach. Share an inner tube raft and enjoy some family times as you are propelled through 1,200 feet of twists and turns on this thrilling water slide.
  3. Kali River Rapids – You don’t have to go to one of Orlando’s water parks to enjoy a family-friendly water ride. Kali River Rapids at Disney’s Animal Kingdom will give you that family bonding time while serving up some splashes too. This rafting adventure has you navigating the rough rivers of Asia onboard a wooden pagoda. The 12-person raft takes you up a 90-foot knoll, across an erupting geyser and back down a mountain for a thrilling family adventure you won’t forget.
  4. Krakatau Aqua Coater – Nothing says quality family time like getting soaked! The Krakatau Aqua Coaster at Universal’s Volcano Bay will do just that and more as it takes you through mists and into dark twists and turns inside Volcano Bay’s massive volcano. At the end you’ll see how brave your family really is as you plummet through a shimmering waterfall to the bottom.
  5. Popeye & Bluto’s Bilge Rat Barges – Enjoy spectacular splashes and lots of silliness for everybody on board on Popeye & Bluto’s Bilge Rat Barges at Islands of Adventure. You and your family will come together as you brave the raging rapids. Along the way you’ll see classic cartoon humor, an 18-foot octopus and lots of splashes.
  6. Water Beach – Orlando might be smack dab in the middle of the state but that doesn’t mean your family can’t enjoy the beach together. Water Beach at Volcano Bay offers a lush tropical landscape with an incredible view of the Krakatau volcano. Here you can splash, swim and relax together amid the break taking views.
  7. Roa’s RapidsSeaWorld Orlando’s Aquatica lets you and your family race through the white waters of the park on Roa’s Rapids. Enjoy a splashy adventure through a roaring sea of tides, whirlies and geysers.
  8. Loggerhead Lane – Take a break from all of the action at Aquatica and enjoy a relaxing float with the family on a lazy river down Loggerhead Lane. Not your typical lazy river, Loggerhead Lane takes you through an underwater world filled with exotic fish.
  9. Twin Chasers – If you’d rather race your family members than ride with them try out Twin Chasers at LEGOLAND Florida Water Park - Sliders will race 375-feet down an intertwining pair of enclosed water slides into a pool below. Who in your family will be the fastest?
  10. Quest for CHI – The interactive boat ride, Quest for CHI at LEGOLAND Florida takes riders through the diverse world of Chima.
