‘Tis the season for waterparks, and Orlando has quite a few to choose from. Whether you’re looking for a tropical getaway or some splashy thrills, there is an Orlando water park for you.  Here are 5 to splash into this summer:

Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon
Celebrate summer with H20 Glow Nights at Disney’s Typhoon Lagoon. On select nights now through August 24, see the Orlando water park in a whole new light. Typhoon Lagoon transforms into an electric celebration with dance parties, Toy Story-themed experiences, limited-time food and beverages and the parks’ usual water rides with less wait times.

Universal’s Volcano Bay
Orlando’s newest water park, Universal’s Volcano Bay will whisk you away to the carfree island life. The park offers a tropical paradise full of thrill rides like Krakatau Aqua Racer, waves at Waturi Beach, the kiddie area Runnamukka Reef and so much more.

If you’re a LEGO fanatic then you have to visit LEGOLAND Water Park. No other Florida water park lets you build and splash like this one. Take a ride on the lazy river but before you do Build-A-Raft to float on. Kids can also enjoy interactive water play structures, DUPLO Safari, speed slides and much more. 

Aquatica by SeaWorld
Combine your water park adventure with animals at Aquatica by SeaWorld Orlando. Inspired by the South Seas and the animals who live there, Aquatica is one stunning water park. Zip in an enclosed slide with dolphins swimming right beside you, race each other on body slides like Taumata Racer, get in a big thrill on Ihu’s Breakaway Falls drop slide, take a family tube ride on Walhalla Wave and even enjoy some relaxation on the beach.

Disney’s Blizzard Beach
For a ski vacation in the middle of summer head to Disney’s Blizzard Beach. The ski resort themed water park includes rides you’d expect to find in the mountains like slalom courses and toboggan slides. And there are plenty of thrills for the adrenaline junkies like Summit Plummet and Downhill Double Dipper. Blizzard Beach combines the best of water and ski fun.
