Shipwreck Island Panama City Beach
Where are we going today?
How about getting shipwrecked on your family day out? We of course don't mean to be stranded! We mean why not head to Shipwreck Island in Florida where you can cool down on those wonderfully hot days!?
Shipwreck Island has been cooling down families and letting them splash around since 1983. That's a lot of happy families! This tropical themed water park is filled to the brim with fun attractions that the whole family can enjoy.
Over 20 acres you'll find rides, slides and water fun suitable for all ages.
Why don't we start you off in the Ocean Motion Wave Pool? With 500,000 gallons it will give you the feeling of being in the ocean as the gentle waves bob up and down around you! You don't have to be scared of any ocean creatures lurking beneath you here!
Have you some brave little water lovers in the family? Then why not try the White Knuckle River - a 660 foot long tube ride which will twist and turn you down it's path! Sounds pretty scary!
What if we told you there were more attractions to keep you on your toes? The Tree Top Drop is actually TWO slides which both start 65 feet up on a platform! One slide is dark...and that drops onto a free fall slide. Sounds pretty hair raising!
If you STILL want more challenges, why not try the Pirates Plunge Racing Slide, where side by side you challenge other riders - AND your own nerves!
Of course, if you want some attractions a bit softer, then relax on the Lazy River, with 2,000 feet of slow moving waters that you can just sit back and relax as you're taken round the park!
Skull Island is perfect for the whole family to get involved in, as there are little kiddy slides and that infamous tipping bucket - try not to let it dump 700 gallons of water on top of you! The Tadpole Hole is also great for those little ones as it's a children's activity pool.
So - sounds like your family will be making a splash rather than a sprinkle this summer at Shipwreck Island!

What people are saying?
by Kevin Buckley
They are overly cautious about safety. In 3 hours we got in about 6 or 7 rides. They wait until the first person completes the slide and exits the area before allowing the next person to even approach the slide. Then they explain how to ride as if it's complicated. Highly inefficient. I spent most of the day waiting to ride even though the lines were short.

I got here at 11:00 a.m. with my son. There is no place to sit at 11 a.m. Parents, unless you get here before they open or you want to stand up all day, try someplace else. I just wasted $70 to find out I couldn't stay here for more than 15 minutes. I don't believe there is seating for 10 percent of the people who are in the park. When I asked management about this situation they advised me to take someone else's stuff off of their chairs while they were in the water and throw it on the ground and take their seat.

by Jeremy Purvis
great place for everyone, always has been.....as far as the post by someone earlier on safety....grow up ..safety is top priority or should be at any amusement venue...even if it costs you a little precious time....i went here as a kid and have brought my son which is a senior now almost every year....i wish miracle strip and peticoat junction was still up and running!

They close at 5 o'clock for some odd reason, and quit selling tickets at 4, I went the around 3:30 and they were already done selling tickets. I tried to talk to the lady at the gate and she rude to me. I will never spend a dime at the place.
