Take A Ride Through A Magical Aquarium On This One Of A Kind Tubing Adventure In Texas
Texas is full of awesome aquariums, but only one has a water slide flowing straight through it. Aquatica in San Antonio features an unforgettable tubing experience that takes riders beneath an underground habitat of stingrays and other tropical fish. It’s the perfect end-of-summer family adventure!
Owned by SeaWorld, Aquatica has the unique ability to merge ocean life with water attractions. The park features over a dozen rides that all somehow tie into the undersea creature theme.
Many different aquatic animals swim beneath the very water you'll be floating in. One ride in particular offers up-close-and-personal interaction with these majestic beings: Stingray Falls.
First up is the chill: a leisurely float beneath the tranquil sound of water droplets softly cascading into the river below. Sit back and enjoy the ride as a gentle current pushes you along.
Next comes the thrill, where you'll take several twists and turns before finally plunging into an underground grotto. Prepare to come face-to-face with stingrays and other tropical fish, as they eagerly press their faces against the glass to get a closer look at you.
Stingray Falls is the only attraction of its kind on earth, so make sure to revel in every moment. Tickets are $15 a person, and riders must be at least 36 inches tall.
Among many other attractions are a wave pool, lazy river, and the tallest drop slide in Texas. There's something to keep the fun going all day long for every member of the family.
Address: 10500 Sea World Drive, San Antonio, TX 78251. Hours are 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday-Saturday and 10 a.n. to 6 p.m. Sunday.
