San Diego's Aquatica waterpark features seven long water slides, many pools to play in, and even flamingo and turtle habitats. The tallest water slide at Aquatica San Diego is the 80-foot Hoo Roo Run, with four twisting slides, but there are two others that are at least 75 feet long, including a tornado water slide. There are also play pools suitable for younger kids, and a 500,000-gallon wave pool.
Aquatica sits about 10 miles southeast of San Diego in Chula Vista and is not open year-round. The park typically opens in May and closes in late September, with June-August being the busiest months. During open months, the park is open from roughly 10am-6pm, though hours can sometimes vary because of the schedule of an amphitheater nearby. Admission starts at $37 for adults and $31 for children ages 3-9.
