Aquatica water park in Orlando, Florida is a lot of fun during the day in the summer.  Plus, it’s a wonderful way to cool off from the hot Florida sun.

But this summer, you’ll have a chance to have fun at the popular waterpark at night, too.  Yes, an all-new event is coming to Aquatica Orlando.  This exciting event is called AquaGlow!  And as this name might imply, it means your favorite waterpark will have a neon glow at night!

So what can you expect at the event?  Let’s start with the all-new Electric Tides!  This laser light show lights up the sky above you.  You get a great view of that from Cutback Cove, one of Aquatica’s wave pools.  You can enjoy it from the water or while you relax on a beach chair nearby.

Another fun part of the event?  You can experience the fun Roa’s Rapids, but in a new way with Roa’s Rapids AMP’ED UP.  It is an enhanced experience with new mist effects, projections, and immersive light tunnels.

There is also an epic foam party!  You can dance along with popular music throughout the night.

Exclusive AquaGlow merchandise is available during the event over at Kiwi Traders.

And here’s a really neat feature (at least for me): free soft drinks throughout the night!

And of course, you can enjoy your favorite slides and attractions at Aquatica.  Except this time, no long lines!  This event has limited capacity compared to the waterpark during the day.  So all guests get to enjoy short lines all night long.

AquaGlow Dates & Times

Now when I say all night, I mean 8:00 PM from 11:00 PM.  If you get a ticket for the event, you can even come early at 6:00 PM and enjoy the park from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM (though the extra event festivities won’t start until 8:00 PM).

The event takes place on the following dates:

  • June : 7, 14, 21, 28
  • July: 5, 6, 12, 13, 19, 20, 26, 27
  • August: 2, 3, 9, 10

AquaGlow Tickets

AquaGlow is a separate ticketed event, meaning it is not included in a general admission ticket.  Also, if you have an annual pass or a fun card, you will still have to buy a separate ticket for this event (though pass members can access discounted tickets through their pass member portal; you can find out more benefits you can get by being a passholder here).

But for everyone else, you can purchase an AquaGlow ticket here.

And by the way, parking is not included in your ticket.  Parking is, however, offered at a discounted rate of $20.  Also, once again, if you are a pass member you can still take advantage of your pass holder perks whether it is reduced parking or free parking. Also if you already purchased parking for earlier in the day at Aquatica, your parking pass will still be valid for that night.

AquaGlow Dining

You can all enjoy dinner during the event, as dining locations will be open throughout the park.  Select locations will even feature exclusive culinary offerings.  And if you purchased an all-day dining ticket to Aquatica, then it is valid during the event.
