"Great place get there early"

Went to Aquatica in San Antonio on a Thursday in July. Got there with two grandkids at 10:30. Attempted to get the food bands at the entrance. Wait in line exceeded 15 minutes with nothing happening. Their computers were down and had only 1 window open with young teens in charge. Someone then told us we could redeem inside. Found good location under big umbrella at wave pool. This became our point of location. Went up to the first big ride and line was already long. After waiting and moving slowly, 10 people passed us because they bought speed or questions pass!! Yuck! Getting irritated, went down and left the kids and wife in line. Stood in line to purchase 4 speed passes at $86. Went back to kids who were still in line. Gave each their wrist speed pass and went to the top. I felt bad for folks who stood in line longer than me, and had to let us go through. I HATE that because I was willing to pay the $$$'s, I could go up front! Not fair!! Well,, having a speed pass Does make all the difference! Went on all the rides quickly. The steps kept getting higher and higher! Food bands for the youngsters was worth it. For $15 each got to eat and drink every 90 minutes. Pizza, chicken nuggets, han and cheese subs, chips,fries. And a dessert or small fruit. Your basic junk food. But for kids well worth it. Go during the week! Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday. A lot less crowded. Also stayed at a close hotel that provided excellent shuttle service (Courtyard Marriott). Therefore, no parking lot blues, and up front to the gates. Get your tickets, speed pass, and food bands on line,,, cheaper. All in all, a great time.

"Washed up at Aquatica"
TripAdvisor user rating 3 out of 5
Reviewed July 18, 2019 NEW
The park is well maintained, however, it would have been nice to have more shaded areas available to get out of the sun. The walkways around the pools were very hot and actually burned the bottoms of our grandchildren's feet. There is an abundance of things to do here and is definitely worth a visit!

"Quick Queue///Free Ice Water "
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed July 17, 2019 NEW
We went on a Tuesday and it wasn’t terribly crowded. However, midday we bought a quick queue to line jump because of the awful wait at the falls ride. It’s only $20 a person and totally worth it. Honestly, the system is messed up for families who don’t end up purchasing it though. Either the price needs to be higher, or a better method needs to be worked out. There was nothing stopping us from continuously going to the front of the line (slowing it down and blocking other families from getting on in a timely manner). Despite our kids disappointment, we did not let them keep going to the front of the lines back to back like they wanted to and were entitled to do. We had a blast and would return. Some restrooms need updating. Ice water is free! Just ask for it. Food is expensive. Share.

"Too busy"
TripAdvisor user rating 3 out of 5
Reviewed July 15, 2019 NEW
We visited on a Saturday in July. Was insanely busy. Waited over an hour in line to buy food. Waited 1 hour and 45 mins to ride a ride. Wave pool was so full I don’t think it was safe. Guards didn’t look super attentive, either. They should have a max of people allowed in...this was way too many people. We did see an emergency vehicle come. Not sure what had happened but they are bound to have more emergencies.

"Don’t go if you don’t buy the fast pass"
TripAdvisor user rating 2 out of 5
Reviewed July 07, 2019 NEW
We waited in every line over an hour. Only rode eight rides all day and did the lazy river twice. Early was ok but midday so packed, not relaxing at all. More like bumper floats the whole way. The lines for rides would move until families with the fast pass would go through three times. Everyone else who bought tickets but didn’t spend the extra 25 per ticket, had to wait. This was the weekend after the Fourth of July. It seemed so unAmercan in some way. We pay to go to the park but our time and money isn’t good enough. If someone wants to pay someone to wait in line for them fine. But to cut the line again and again while 90% of the people who paid for their family to go too get ignored and stand there. We are not suppose to be a class system but the fast pass makes it so. We won’t be going back. The rides are Ok. Got a little bruised up on a couple of the tube runs a person lays on their back. The sections are not perfectly lined up. The lines for food were an hour. They didn’t have enough people working in the back. Kid meals are about 9$ a piece. Adult meals about 14. Water is 4$. Excessive when it’s hot and only found one water fountain. Parking was $25-34. Locker was $25 for the day. Kids liked petting the sting rays. So grumpy from standing in line watching people walk by while we waited our turn. Wanted us to buy the fast passes but after all the money just getting in, we just couldn’t swing another 125. So, if you have lots of money, it’s probably more fun. I think they should ban fast pass and pay people to stand in line. It would keep the lines moving for everyone and support capitalism.
