SAN ANTONIO – Beginning May 2014, Aquatica, SeaWorld’s Waterpark, will introduce a 13,500 square feet aviary containing about 300 birds representing more than 50 species.

The newest attraction will be one of the park’s serene offerings, giving guests the chance to float, wade or walk among hundreds of tropical birds. Some of the birds are considered threatened or endangered and our aviary will help in conservation efforts.

The aviary and new pools will be located on the Loggerhead Beach area of Aquatica, creating a new “waterfront beach” for our guests to enjoy.

Guests will be able to access the aviary by floating along Loggerhead Lane river, walking through Loggerhead Beach or wading in a new pool with a grotto-style waterfall. Guests will have the opportunity to hand feed birds as SeaWorld aviculturists and educators will be on hand to teach guests about these amazing animals. When Aquatica waterpark closes for the season, SeaWorld guests will be able to access the aviary.

Aquatica San Antonio is a waterpark only SeaWorld could create, blending up-close animal experiences with thrilling rides and family entertainment. The park offers experiences from the serene, like 42,000 square feet of white sandy beaches, to the extreme, including a “zero-gravity” wall on Walhalla Wave. For more details, visit
