There's no better way to cool off during the hot summer months than to spend some quality time at Aquatica San Diego. The largest water park in the city is only 1 mile from Best Western Otay Valley. And because it was designed by the folks at SeaWorld, you'll be guaranteed wet and wild fun for the whole family. Stay even cooler by renting a private cabana, which features a mini-fridge, welcome basket, and bottled water.
For starters, there’s the Taumata Racer, a high-speed racing water slide that will take you down a 375- foot slide and around a hair-raising 180-degree turn. Tassie’s Twister features a drop down 75 feet of water en route to a six-story funnel. And Big Surf Shores is one of Southern California’s largest wave pools with over 500,000 gallons of water and 5-feet-high swells.
There are, indeed. It’s recommended that anyone under 42” tall wear a life vest while on a water ride or slide. They also must be accompanied by an adult. Everyone choosing to go on a water ride or slide is required to be able to maintain the proper riding position throughout. What’s more, all visitors must review and comply with requirements posted at each attraction.
