We do like big rollercoasters. Can someone tell me what we should do first at each of these places in terms of lines becoming long.

We visited SeaWorld the week before Christmas last year and Kraken was walk on all evening. Manta wait never exceeded 30 minutes mid-day. We rode Atlantis at night, walk-on also. Plenty of seating was available at all of the shows. I think the longest wait we had the whole time was for the Polar Express.

Headed down in two weeks! We haven't experienced SeaWorld in the summer so I can report on the wait times when we return. I booked a night at Springhill Suites so that we can use the complimentary Quick Queue.
Never been to Aquatica but plan to visit this trip...

Thanks for the info. Does anyone know what should be done first at Aquatica? Thanks:)

We always try to do the raft rides first in case the lines get long. Anytime we've been at Aquatica we've never had an issue with really long lines, and we've always been able to go back on anything we wanted. But we've generally found at waterparks that the lines for raft rides/racing slides get longer as the day goes on, and you can go in the no-line wave pools and kiddie play areas any time of the day.

When will you be traveling?

Atlantis had a long line (60 min) when we were there July 22-23 but the Brazilian tour groups were part of that. We had QQ so we carried on. Kraken was always pretty quick unless you wanted front row, though by the second week that was walk on, even front row. We saw Manta have as long as 40. The shortest we saw posted was 15 but it was really like 5.

I agree with a PP about Aquatica. Do everything once you get there as far as slides go, then repeat ones you like. The longest wait we had was 30 minutes for the one that goes through the Commerson dolphin tank /Dophin Plunge. The fastest/shortest lines were Taumata Racers (8 people go at once) and the Whanau slide (multi-riders - four (?) slides.
