Luke and I recently had the pleasure of attending a VIP preview of the new Roa’s Aviary at SeaWorld’s Aquatica before it opened to the public. It was such a fun event and I was amazed at the new attraction which is a 13,500 square feet aviary containing about 300 birds representing more than 50 species. It is so neat because you can float, wade or walk in to the aviary and then enjoy feeding and watching a variety of tropical birds. AND…It is NOW OPEN TO THE PUBLIC!

Roa’s Aviary is located on the Loggerhead Beach area of Aquatica which is a new “waterfront beach” for our guests to enjoy. Luke loved playing in the sand and the pool which features a grotto-style waterfall entry into the aviary.

This little guy decided to take flight right when we were taking our picture with him! A little startling but made for a great pic!

You can float into the aviary via Loggerhead Lane river. Tim Duncan and his family actually floated right by us!

These are just a few of the stunning birds in the aviary! I highly recommend stopping by Roa’s Aviary on your next visit to SeaWorld and Aquatica!
