    Tassie’s Twister is just one of many exciting slides and rides at Aquatica SeaWorld’s Waterpark, opening June 1, 2013.

    Just in time for summer, SeaWorld’s renovated water park in Chula Vista officially opened its doors on Saturday.

    Aquatica SeaWorld’s Waterpark” used to be the site of Knott’s Soak City, which was purchased by SeaWorld last November.

    The Chula Vista location is the third Aquatica park in the country, with another in San Antonio and one in Orlando.

    Aquatica has plenty of attractions, including a giant wave pool, six slides and a 1,250-foot lazy river. Parents can take little ones to kid-friendly areas “Kata’s Kookaburra Cove” or “Slippity Dippity,” which were engineered with children in mind.

    And did we mention the animals? A habitat with dozens of freshwater turtles will live in an exhibit that will feature under- or above-water viewing. Plus Caribbean flamingos can be seen when gliding down the lazy river – because it wouldn’t be SeaWorld without cool critters.

    Aquatica San Diego will be located at 2052 Entertainment Circle in Chula Vista. The park is open daily June 1-Sept. 2, and weekends from Sept. 7 to Oct. 20. Admission is $38 for ages 10 and older; $30 for ages 3–9.
