As an entertainment epicenter, Orlando brings out the kid in all of us, even when it comes to underwater adventures. Come discover the wetter side of the city by playing in a new water theme park, dining deep-sea style at a seafood restaurant, and staying in a Nickelodeon-themed hotel with SpongeBob and its own water activities. Plus, you can take the entire family without dipping too far into your savings.
Aquatica: Just across the street from the marine life at SeaWorld Orlando, you're invited to make your own splash at Aquatica. This massive water theme park offers a range of activities, including rafts, rapids, and thrill rides. Don't miss the popular and one-of-a-kind Dolphin Plunge, where you'll ride in an enclosed underwater tube through a lagoon filled with black-and-white Commerson's dolphins. Admission costs $44.95 per adult and $38.95 for kids between the ages of three and nine.
Salt Island Chophouse, Fish Market, & Wave Bar: Fusing Caribbean flavors with Southern and Pacific specialties, Salt Island takes seafood dining to new heights. The restaurant accommodates nearly all tastes and moods, with drinks at the Wave Bar, live music at the Sand Bar, and shellfish from the Ocean Bar, as well as a full dinner menu. Before dinner, your kids can watch underwater life swimming about on the big screen TVs in the Wave bar, while you enjoy one of its 40 specialty cocktails. Entrees start at $12.99. The children's menu features items like fried shrimp or mac-and-cheese.
Nickelodeon Family Suites by Holiday Inn: With Nickelodeon-themed, two-bedroom suites equipped with bunk beds and playstations, your kids may never want to leave the room. That is until they hear about splashing in the two onsite water parks, playing in the arcade, meeting SpongeBob, and participating in a mass sliming. Parents can also find a place of their own at the Nick@Nite Lounge, where they can grab a relaxing cocktail or cup of coffee. Suites start at about $139 in the low season.
