Rides and Slides
World's first duelling saucer water slide Three, two, one go!
Feel the rush of competition on Rapids Racer! Riders grab a two-person raft before racing through nearly 600 feet of slide, complete with low walls to encounter your opponents throughout this side-by-side experience. The thrill of the chase is amplified as guests swirl through the world’s first duelling saucers in this exhilarating journey full of high-speed tunnels, turns, and more. Who will conquer this high-speed slide first? Find out at the finish line!
Hang on, this is one fast water slide!
Go solo or grab a friend, Aruba Tuba™ is one ride you want to brave! We hope you're not afraid of the dark! This enclosed water slide will heighten all your other senses as you shoot through the dark to the bottom at a raging speed and into the splash pool. Dare it by yourself or grab a friend to join you on the double-person tube.
This high-thrill family raft slide combines high-banking rotations and rapid descents, sending sliders on a swirling journey through two open tailspin features. Manufactured by Whitewater, Solar Vortex will also include three dynamic AquaLucent™ elements – harnessing the power of the Florida sun into colourful patterns that shine through the slide as riders reach speeds of up to 20 miles per hour.
Plunge 70 Feet on Adventure Island’s Drop Slide
Prepare to vanish down an epic free-fall at Vanish Point®. This water slide will literally pull the floor from under your feet. Prepare to drop down this 70-foot drop slide that lets you choose between two skyboxes. And smile for the camera, because we're capturing your moment live! Each slide will send you through 425 feet of spiralling tubes until you reach the splash run finale. Are you brave enough to take on Vanish Point®?
Enjoy waves of water and sound as you splash to the beat of a remixed favourite attraction.
Formerly Wahoo Run, Wahoo Remix is Adventure Island’s first water slide to feature synchronized light and sound elements, delivering an all-new, high energy, family raft ride experience with ultimate party vibes. Enclosed tunnels that were once dark glow and groove as riders zoom through over 600 feet of fun.
Wave Pools, Rivers and Family Fun
The surf's always up in our breath-taking, 17,000 square foot wave pool. A rolling surf with waves awaits you every ten minutes.
This calm, half-mile tube trip will take you on an adventure through the park. Rambling Bayou™ is a relaxing way to take a break from the excitement and keep cool. It's a perfect bit of rest and relaxation between thrills and spills.
Splash Attack® is a maze of soakin' fun with a surprise centrepiece and a huge tree house with more than 50 water play toys. There's no telling what you will get you wetter, the 1,000-gallon wooden bucket that empties every seven minutes or the 500 feet of twisting open flumes and closed tubes gushing with swirling water. The tree house is filled with water toys like jets, levers, and rope pulls, plus twisting slides, bridges, cargo nets, and web crawls.
When your appetite becomes as big as the slides at Adventure Island, head to Surfside Cafe for a variety of delicious meals and desserts. The menu includes burgers, chicken strips, and fresh salads, along with ice-cold beverages and brews.
There are plenty of fan favourites to fill up on at Mango Joe's. The menu offers smoked chicken, ribs, BBQ pork sandwiches, and fresh salads.
