Aquatica SeaWorld Lazy River in Orlando
Aquatica SeaWorld has two (2) amazing and yet very different Lazy Rivers. While the Loggerhead Lane Lazy River is not the longest, it is 1,200 feet of floating fun and takes about 10 minutes to fully float around. For a lot of people, this is plenty because Loggerhead Lane Lazy River is completely surrounded by lush greenery and is a very inviting place to relax.
Access to Tassie’s Twister
Loggerhead Lane Lazy River is used as a gateway to gain access to the Tassie’s Twisters water slides. This means that you have to go through a portion of the Lazy River to get to the entrance. Tassie’s Twister is the water slide that takes riders from an enclosed tube into a swirling bowl of fun. When riders exit the Water Slide, they dump into a small splash pool that connects directly to Loggerhead lane. This is unique in that if you decide that you want a few minutes of adrenaline-pumping excitement during your float, you can just jump off of your tube and walk up to this great Water Slide.
Large Aquarium Views from Loggerhead Lazy River
As you enter the main cave about halfway around, you will notice something that you will not find on other rides. A huge picture window view to the Commerson’s Dolphins tank is the main focal point to the park and also the main reason for riding down the speed slide, Dolphin’s Plunge. If you are a little nervous to take a drop through the darkness you can at least view everyone else as they enter the clear tube that takes them straight through the Dolphin’s Tank. This is a lot of fun because you will see people whiz by with water flying in their faces. Loggerhead Lane gives you the best view in the park to the very unique, black and white dolphins that almost remind you of small Killer Whales.

Roa’s Rapids – Lazy River on Steroids
Definitely a Lazy River but also very special. Roa’s Rapids provides an amazing river floating ride that is a blast for all who enter. Roa’s Rapids is a little longer than Loggerhead Lane and much faster. A tube is not allowed at Roa’s Rapids because of the speed you travel in the water.
If you are under 51″ in height, you are required to wear a life vest, it is optional for anyone taller. Wearing a life vest, or at least using one to float on, creates additional buoyancy that makes this ride even more enjoyable. Of course, if you want to just swim along around everyone else, going without the vest might be the best option. After you have been on both of these rivers, most people prefer the Roa’s Rapids because, let’s face it, most of us like a little faster pace.

If you are looking for something with a little more speed but you still want to relax, give the Roa’s Rapids a try.
