Adventure Island is a fun place for family and friends of all ages! Bring a cooler and enjoy a picnic, order from their menus and many restaurants. Enjoy the numerous water slides, the lazy river and the wave pool. Its a great place to relax and have fun! Right next to Busch Gardens and centrally located in Tampa, its a great place to spend the day and have fun!

We went the 2nd day before our vacation was over, and upon leaving asked guest services if we could come again tomorrow at a discount. They did better than that - we got a complimentary day!! That saved us 150 bux and our kids had a blast (so did we). Would definitely go back. Its a little grotty in places and doesn't compare to say the Disney water park, but it was perfect for us and out small kids. The only thing I would say that was a bit disappointing is that two rides were closed the 2nd day we visited, and we didn't get a chance to go on them on the first day.

We went with two small infants, 2 kids under 10, and 2 teenage girls and everyone had fun! there was something for everyone and the food was great. really like this water park and if you're renting a locker, you should get it in the middle, much more convenient than in the entrance. Get there early to find a nice spot in the shade, because the cabanas are too much money

We went mid week before labour day , it was not very full at all so no queues, we laughed, screamed and relaxed. Time went quickly, there we no big thrills like at Busch gardens but it is definitely value for money if you get the 2 park ticket. Been to Tampa area 5 times and we have talked about going before , we have missed out and should have come soon, something for all ages. Will do again next visit, mid week again cos that was a winner!

We visited adventure island during a two week holiday during Orlando. What a fun place. My girls who are five and six only just and my husband and myself loved the high wall where you jumped off and had a fall off roughly three metres before hitting the water. Such a thrill. My heart was in my mouth but was so good. The endless surf, rapids, Everglides were also a lot of fun. We had a great day. There were no queues to go on anything. Had such a fun day
