Adventure Island Attractions
Get whisked away on this fast-paced ride that has you flying through a twisted slide at speeds you don't normally experience from a tube ride. When you're done you'll be left completely drenched and with a huge smile on your face.
An open ride flume that lets riders coast solo or with a friend, Calypso Coaster is a speedy slide ride that spits you out into the Rambling Bayou River below for a relaxing end to a thrilling ride.
Don't let the name fool you, Rambling Bayou is one of the most relaxing attractions in the park. That's because the half-mile tube ride will float you through a rainforest atmosphere with lush landscapes, waterfalls, rain, and fog.
It's not called runaway for nothing. This thrilling solo ride will hurl you down a 34-foot mountain-like structure reaching some of the fastest speeds in the park all while twisting and turning your way to a splashy finish.
If you aren't afraid of heights and you like a good thrill, you might want to try Everglides. This adventurous ride speeds you down a 72-foot incline before you skim across the pool's surface and hydroplane up to 20 yards!
Surfs up at this giant wave pool! You can catch a wave every few minutes as the surf rolls in with waves up to five feet high! When the surfs out, you can enjoy all of the fun of a regular pool.
The more tropical areas of the water park, Paradise Lagoon offers plenty of family-friendly fun in a relaxing atmosphere. Dare devils can jump off a cliff, swing from a vine or take a ride on the area's water slides. And those who just want to enjoy the hot summer sun can lounge poolside while you take in the beautiful waterfalls that surround the area.
