Aquatica - Loggerhead Lane


Here is a “lazy river” ride that lives up to the name. The three-foot-deep water course describes a short, meandering circle punctuated with the requisite water spouts and waterfalls. Most people ride in the one- or two-seater inner tubes provided. Most of them are already in the water, so the river is sometimes clogged with unused tubes.

Given its short length, this would be a disappointing lazy river if it were not for a very special feature. At one end, the river passes through a tunnel with a large picture window looking into the Commerson’s Dolphin Habitat. The effect is spectacular. Not only will you get a great view of the peppy little dolphins as they cavort around the tubes of Dolphin Plunge, but you’ll see that slide’s riders swishing by on their way to splashdown. The current is gentle enough that it’s an easy matter to maneuver your tube to water’s edge, where you can grab the shore and pause for a longer look. Many people do just that.

A short distance away is a shortcut that links the two sides of the river. Here, under shelter, you will find Fish Grotto, a large aquarium filled to bursting with colorful tropical fish.

Note: There are plenty of lawn chairs all along the broad walkway that circles around (but does not completely surround) Loggerhead Lane. If you’d prefer not to deal with the sand of the beach in front of the wave pools, this makes an ideal alternative as your base of operations for the day.
