Adventure Island, Tampa

3.6
Try out 10 water slides and four pool attractions at Adventure Island water park. Throw yourself down rushing water streams into rapids and pools. Hold tight to your rubber raft while tubing down twists, turns, slopes, and showers, or race down a 17 m (55 ft) drop. Try sliding down mountains and through snake-like tunnels, and powering through enclosed high-speed tubes. You can rent a cabana with lounge chairs and a fridge, or a reserve hut on the sandy beach for the day.

  • We had free tickets, so that's always a plus right off the bat. We found out the day before we went that they no longer allow outside food or drinks in the park. But the park hardly had any people and...  more »

  • We were very pleased with Adventure Island. All the rides are easy to get to. It is a well laid out park. There are multiple sitting areas with multiple shaded areas with in them. We chose to do the dine all day bracelets. It is a good deal. The food here is better than any of the other parks we went to this week. Pictured is just ONE Of the multiple seating areas. This one is probably the smallest.
  • Unfortunately this water park is no longer my favorite place. Last year we were able to enjoy with our family the picnic area. This year we had to turn back and leave all our food in our car and it didn't make no sense to just go back and forward to eat, so we had to leave early from the park. Beside there are no healthy food choices in the park and the food is very expensive, that's why I'm only giving four stars. Other than that the park is great for families to spend all day in.
  • Living local, my family and I have been going to Adventure Island for many years. The water rides are so cool! However, it was great in the old days... you could bring in coolers and sit in the picnic areas inside the park and eat/drink. You use to be able to find a great covered area to relax, but today you have to pay $100+ to rent most covered areas. The food is great but the lines are so long. You think that the park would have all registers open for the summer, but they don't. The food is very expensive. Yes they have a meal plan for $35+ but it does not include the snack areas, which are expensive also, $8 for a large dipndots ice cream. If this is a family park they might want to go back to the "old days", when is was awesome and affordable.
  • All of the Busch Gardens theme parks are great, and Adventure Island is no exception. They are always clean, the employees are great, and it is a super cheap way to have fun during the hot FL summer. Tickets are $55 for a day, or just get the two park annual pass, includes parking. Sometimes its fun to leave work and just float in the lazy river for a few hours to decompress.
  • 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.
