Aquatica has three restaurants, all with indoor seating as well as a number of food carts. You can also eat on the beach (see Mango Market take-out) or in your own private cabana.
Note that originally guests were not allowed to bring any food or coolers into the park, unlike Blizzard Beach and Typhoon Lagoon, though there is a picnic area outside the main entrance. These rules have been relaxed and you can now bring in small coolers containing things like snacks and bottled water.
If you don't want to carry money around with you, to make it easier to purchase food and gifts, you can charge your purchases using waterproof wristbands, available at Guest Services.
If you are 21 or over, then you can purchase Anheuser-Busch beverages throughout the park.
Banana Beach Cookout
The Banana Beach Cookout is an all-you-care-to-eat buffet featuring chargrilled burgers, hot dogs, BBQ chicken drumsticks, and side orders such as salads and corn on the cob.
One great feature is that as well as a single meal, you can also buy an all-day pass which allows you to come back as many times as you like for one price. Great if you have hungry kids or are planning to stay all day and need more than one meal.
The menu at Mango Market includes pizzas, chicken platters, tortilla wraps, sandwiches and kids meals packed in a souvenir sand bucket with shovel.
Mango Market offers a take out service so you can take your food in a picnic basket back to the beach. h2>WaterStone Grill
The third restaurant is the WaterStone Grill featuring freshly carved sandwiches, platters, wraps, salads, desserts.
Again the kids meals include a souvenir sand bucket with shovel.
There are four gift shops, Beachies, Sunnies 'n Such, Kiwi Traders and Adaptations, selling a range of gifts, designer items and clothing.
