Aquatica Orlandos Karekare Curl Waterslide Opens on 12 April

inline imageKareKare Curl, Aquatica Orlandos highly-anticipated new waterslide attraction, will make its grand debut to park guests on Friday 12 April 2019.

"KareKare" means "waves" in the Maori language, and combined with "Curl", this new ride could be described as a "curve shaped wave", which riders will experience when surging up the vertical wave wall.



True to its name and holding two passengers per raft, this new slide delivers a high-adrenaline, weightless adventure. With the addition of KareKare Curl, Aquatica Orlando becomes the thrill leader among Florida waterparks, with more high-thrill rides than any other.



The opening of KareKare Curl signals the second year in a row that Aquatica Orlando has unveiled a new attraction, following the opening of Ray Rush in 2018, a fully-loaded water adventure which combines three unique slide elements into one action-packed attraction the entire family can enjoy together. It was recently named the worlds best new water ride in a USA poll.

Ooh thanks for that - we've been wondering what'll have changed when we go back in June as we've been away from Florida for 3 long years now! 😃

Excellent news - something new that'll be open just in time for our visit that shouldn't have too much of an adverse effect on crowds. Aquatica are working hard to keep pace with Volcano Bay it seems - if only Disney did the same!

Gave Aquatica a miss last year, will be good to try this and Ray Rush 😎 but have to say that second artists depiction looks a bit more "vertical" than "curl" to me !

Given the tube is considerably higher up than where the slide starts in that image, I wouldn't worry too much about it's accuracy

That's exactly what we were saying about Disney.
