Ray Rush at Aquatica Orlando reaches new heights in construction milestone

Installation of Ray Rush's massive 12,000-pound fiberglass sphere

Construction is well underway at Aquatica Orlando for their new water slide attraction, Ray Rush. The park sent us new video of the slides progress showing off the installation of the 12,000-pound fiberglass sphere.

Opening this spring, Ray Rush is where family and friends can take on three exciting thrills as they slide, splash and soar like never before. First, riders will be launched with water jets designed to propel rafts into the first of several enclosed tube sections. Next, riders will swirl into the giant translucent sphere. Finally, riders will drop into an open-air halfpipe that resembles the shape of a manta ray. Rafts will soar back and forth on the wings of the manta before entering the final enclosed tube section that ends with a splash.

Aquatica, SeaWorld’s Waterpark announced the addition of Ray Rush this past October. The new attraction promises to be a fully-loaded water adventure which will combine unique slide elements, never before seen at Aquatica, into one action-packed attraction the entire family can enjoy together. Ray Rush will have a height requirement of 42” to appeal to families with children.
