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.

  • great for all ages, kids love it (me too) a lot of water slides and every year they add at least one more  more »
  • Spend a day in this water park! Fun for the whole family! Seasonal. A lot of rides that are enjoyable for all ages, from toddlers to seniors.  more »
  • We had a very good day. There's not much choice of food, more on hot days worth. The Park is a little old, but it's nice.

  • My kids and I love this place but it is older! The rides and attractions are a little dated but still so much fun. Lots of sandy/ shady areas to relax while keeping your eyes on the kiddos in the play areas and pools. Food is a little pricey but everything I've eaten there was good. My fave was the pork nachos.
  • I would have no problem giving a 5 star rating, but.... It's fun, no question. The racer slide however is so unsafe! Not the ride itself, the staircase structure leading to it. Being a contractor, you notice things. At the top staircase, I was leaning on the railing until I noticed how much it was leaning, and how easy it would breakaway under the right conditions. All it would really take is someone heavier leaning on it or multiple people, and at that height, a fall would be fatal! Also several boards on the stairs were missing screws and moved! Aren't there any safety checks on the rides? Busch should be ashamed, it's a large lawsuit waiting to happen.
  • This place really needs to renovated. I have been going since I was a kid and it still looks exactly the same. It's like going back into time. With all the other options in Orlando this place needs to step it up.
  • For the price of admission, season pass - the best deal for a water park. It can get crowded with long lines but that is with any park. You can bring water bottles in so bring your own and save $. They don't allow outside food/drink, but leave it in a cooler in your car and eat lunch at the picnic tables in the parking lot if you are trying to save $. Overall great deal.
  • It's a good place to go especially in Florida where it's always hot they have different attractions for all age groups. The only problem if you buy an annual pass the park is closed from the middle of October until March of next year but you still have to pay each month even though you can't go into the park and it's not like it gets too cold and Florida to go into the water year round. But overall it's a nice place to stay cool and have fun
