  • We spent almost a full day at Adventure Island and both the kids and adults loved it. There are many different areas to enjoy and lots of fun slides to go down. Some you ride in a single or double tub...  more »
  • We love water parks and frequent them often - this is the WORST run park we have ever been to. It wasn't that crowded when we went, but they are sure to keep the park understaffed and slow moving so y...  more »
  • Overall, this water park is just ok. There are some fun rides and it is small so there is less walking and more riding. The lines weren't too bad. If you've ever been to Water World in Denver, Colorad...  more »

  • Several fun rides. Lazy river is good spot to chill. Wave pool was fun. Most meals are $10, drink included. Kids area has so much chlorine your face will burn; but kids slides where good. Lots of line skipping by kids and even young adults. Be prepared to step up, or be stepped over. Security is spotty at best.
  • I am a season pass holder and returned to the park for the first time this summer. It's a great water park. I enjoy picnicking with my friends and family there for the whole day often. Only to come to find out that they no longer allow coolers and outside food. We were turned away at the gate with all of our food for the day. Only leaving us with expensive, unhealthy food options in the park, which my family does not eat... Being able to bring our own food was one of my favorite things about being an anual pass holder to this park, enabling us to spend the whole day there and for us to return often. We will unfortunately not be able to return as often as we like now. I hope they reconsider this new rule in effect, as I'm sure I am just one of many people who feel the same.
  • We had a great time. This is a very clean water park. I was impressed that they were able to keep the bathrooms nice when they were that busy. They also have a very cool option where you can get a wrist band that connects your debit card to the wrist band so you can buy food and drinks without carrying around money. Also, if you have Busch Gardens refillable cups, you can get them filled with soda here for a dollar, just like at Busch Gardens. There are lockers all over the park so you can lock up your valuables and access the locker all day for one price. Next time we might rent a cabana because we had a little trouble finding a spot to put all our towels and stuff. The food in the cafe was severely overpriced. Otherwise, this was a great experience for our entire family, our kids are ages 1-13 years old. There was something for everyone.
  • Staff greeting you and checking baggage are so friendly and kind, and I had them laughing. Staff at guest relations, well, how wonderful can I describe them. So helpful and kind and patient, since I'm hard of hearing. Security here are great too, and let me tell you how great the staff are at the food and drink huts. Families enjoying the sun, the water, the food, GREAT! Lazy river with plenty of tube to float on, shops to buy things. Can't wait to go back and be lazy in the lazy river. Places for kids to enjoy AND it's just like Disney for the kids, ONLY you don't gave to mortgage your home to go there. Well, don't like it too much either, hahahahaha 😄 😉.
  • The slow river is very nice to relax and refresh while moving around the park and watching the attractions. The slides are fun, they have individual slides or multi person slides as well. Great place to be with Family or Friends. When I went the first day I have readed the signs in the parking lot stating that coolers or food are not allowed while staying in the car, and my first thought was that they only want visitors to purchase inside the park. In my second visit, I have noticed that they have a huge kiosk designated to bring your food or coolers outside in the parking lot. So I believe that they don't want people to be standing around having a picnic while cars are moving around the parking lot, they want everyone to be safe by using that kiosk. I have not used it, but if you have a chance just ask about this either by phone or to the staff, so you may be allowed to bring your own food.
