    I am not sure if this should be it's own separate post or is best put in here. Hopefully it works in this thread. :)

    I'm Canadian and just purchased Aquatica tickets through my local CAA website. You fill in the numbers on your card to get access to the Aquatica special pricing. On the main CAA Aquatica page it says you will pay $46.99 USD (pre tax) for an any day ticket. They are currently $49.99USD (pre tax) on the Aquatica website. I wasn't thrilled with the savings but it's better than nothing and I needed four tickets.

    When I went all the way through the prompts to purchase, the ACTUAL price for four adult any day tickets was $36.99 USD pre tax. I was given the option to pay in CAD or USD. The CAD had an extra 3.5 % fee on top of exchange so I just paid in USD with my credit card.

    Anyone in the States can pay through their AAA link for the savings too, but I thought this was particularly worth noting because it was even cheaper than advertised and saved me $52 USD or $70 CAD after exchange on four tickets.

    I can't wait to go.. we love this park!

    Does anyone know if life jackets are free for those over 48"? My kids are not strong swimmers and I don't want them nervous about the water. TIA!

    Does anyone have anymore info than what Aquatica has posted about the PassMember area? I will be hopefully going one day in September before flying home.

    Unfortunately I remembered about the passholder lounge after they closed. It was open from 10-1pm the day I was there. I chatted with a worker from BBB and was told they do serve some food and drinks. It's a small area near BBB with some chairs and a TV.

    Yes. We have season passes to Water Country USA here in Virginia, and I feel Aquatica has a lot more free seating than WC, and provides more shade too.

    I recently went to Aquatica looking for the passholder lounge, but it's been replaced by a bar area, unfortunately. I hope they bring it back someday, as it sounded like a great benefit for passholders. At least the passholder pavilion at SeaWorld will reopen soon!

    Main post has been updated to reflect some changes in pricing and the addition of Ray Rush. :)

    Thanks @FLOIR - so has BB completely switched over to "a-la-carte"? - it is unclear from Aquatica's website but these menus certainly make it appear so.

    It was fully a la carte when we were there in October. No more buffet option.

    It seems like they made a choice to move Banana Beach away from the buffet option at the same time that they seemed to really start to push the All Day Dine. Probably makes sense - rather than having 1 place be a buffet and forcing everyone else into 2 locations, you open up all 3 main locations to everyone and still have the buffet option through the ADD, along with having expanded menu selections for it.
