we visited before they closed for the season had a great time had to pay to park but entry was free water rides were great weather was over cast just beware that if the weather is bad no rain checks so make sure to go on a good weather day to get in a full day

I took my kids when they were little and we had a good time. Lines of course but you get that any where you go for any thing you do.

Last time I was in the area, I dragged 2 other friends of mine (all three of us adults) to Adventure Island. Sure, it's a lot of kids, but there are so many things to do, we barely got a sideways look walking around. Lots of waterslides, wave pools, obstacle-type pools, and a beach with lounge chairs to hang out on when we got hungry.

They even let us bring in a cooler with our own drinks and snacks. This was good since most of the food is fried or deli-type, and on the expensive side, as most amusement parks are. We packed pop, water, sandwiches, chips, and cookies. It was a perfect day.

I rated this attraction as average due to the "buy a ticket, come back all year" feature. While this is a wonderful feature, this particular attraction appears to have become a "baby sitting" service for local residence. While the park itself is enjoyable, the crowd issue can sometimes be unmanageable.
