Jump aboard the new family raft ride at Aquatica

Splash into spring 2018 on Ray Rush. Grab your raft as powerful water jets launch your whole family into an enclosed tube, before swirling you into an enormous see-through sphere. There you’ll spin and splash up the walls until you drop into the final section: an open-air slide shaped like the curved wings of a manta ray. You’ll glide back and forth on the ray’s wings as you make your way towards an epic splashdown finale.

Greater Fort Lauderdale

Hit the beach

You’re never too far from Greater Fort Lauderdale’s glorious sunshine and blissful sea.

Don’t forget that between March and October you’ll find turtles nesting on the beaches too!

“Venice of America”

One of the best ways to explore Greater Fort Lauderdale is by spending the afternoon on the 300 miles of inland waterways. Marvel at the mega yachts and mansions along Millionaire’s Row or lose yourself as you meander along the water on Greater Fort Lauderdale’s very own water taxi. We recommend paddle boarding – it’s easier than it looks!

Enjoy the Sunshine at Siesta Beach

Turquoise blue sea, soft quartz sand and the sun in the sky makes Siesta beach a haven away from the busy city. Restaurants, shopping and nightlife can be found on the 8-mile island as well as plenty of watersport activities.

Curious Circus Culture

The circus is entwined in Sarasota’s history, thanks to John Ringling moving the winter quarters of the famous Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus to the area in 1927.
