CHULA VISTA (CNS) - The water park in Chula Vista, renovated with a South Seas theme by SeaWorld San Diego, opened its doors to the public Saturday morning.

Called Aquatica SeaWorld Waterpark, the facility includes spruced-up water slides, new lush landscaping and up-close animal encounters.

A dedication ceremony is set for 9:45 a.m., featuring Mayor Cheryl Cox, former San Diego Mayor Jerry Sanders and county Supervisor Greg Cox. South Bay-area beauty pageant winners are also scheduled to take part.

Aquatica opens to the public at 10 a.m.

Like the adjacent amphitheater, the water park has had a series of owners over the years and was known most recently as Knott's Soak City. The facility changed hands in November.

SeaWorld also runs water parks in Orlando and San Antonio.
