CHULA VISTA (CBS 8) – News 8 got a first look at SeaWorld's new water park in Chula Vista.

Aquatica, on the site of the former Knott's Soak City, will officially open for business on June 1.

The park features waterslides, a 500,000 gallon wave pool, a sandy beach and a 1200 foot long lazy river.

Officials say the park will also have a unique, SeaWorld, feel.

"It's just fantastic to be surrounded by this type of environment, with sand, with tropical landscape. We have flamingos and fresh water turtles. It's a true experience unlike any other," said David Cromwell the Vice President of Aquatica Seaworld Waterpark.

Admission will cost $38 for adults and $30 for children.
