Today marks the 10th anniversary of Aquatica, SeaWorld Orlando’s Waterpark, and they’re celebrating with a massive sand sculpture birthday cake.
The 22-ton sculpture is inspired by Aquatica’s latest attraction, Ray Rush. Measuring 15′ wide and 8′ tall, the sculpture took skilled artisans almost 25 hours to complete. The beachy birthday cake will be on display in the park through March 5.
Below, take a look at Aquatica’s behind-the-scenes video of the birthday sculpture being built.
