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!
