and Shipwreck Island Water Park is a popular combination water park/amusement park located between Jacksonville Beach and the Intercoastal Waterway. It is the largest amusement complex in northeast Florida, and offers family fun for all ages and can accommodate private group events hosting thousands of guests.

Shipwreck Island, the interactive waterpark, includes a variety of water attractions such as a wave pool, slides, inner tubing and a very unique uphill waterslide. The Shipwreck Island Play Village is the main centerpiece for children, and includes multiple attractions for young guests of all ages.

A one-day admission ticket for the waterpark is $23.99 for anyone 42” or taller and $19.99 for anyone under 42” (there is no charge for children age 3 and under.)

Adventure Landing Rides and Attractions
Adventure Landing/Shipwreck Island Water Park has three “extreme” slides. The newest is the Hydro Half Pipe, where single, double and triple-tube riders experience a sudden, nearly vertical, drop of 40 feet – and then are propelled through a pool of water to another ramp on the other side. The Rage is an “uphill/downhill” water slide and The Eye of the Storm is a once in a lifetime ride – only for the most risky thrill seekers. You must be a strong swimmer and at least 48” tall to take on The Eye of the Storm. The park also features a half-million gallon wave pool. The Shipwreck Island Play Village, designed with children in mind, contains waterfalls, multiple small slides and water cannons that will keep children entertained for hours.
Get ready for non-stop action on Adventure Landing’s dry side. Begin your adventure with the Adventure Speedway Go-Karts, where a twisting quarter mile go-kart track with live racing has results posted on a finish-line leader board. The park advertises that “it is as close to NASCAR racing as you get.” For those looking for something a little calmer, Adventure Golf has two unique 18-hole miniature golf courses designed for fun and relaxation in mind. The two courses challenge all skill levels as they wind through tunnels, over waterfalls and “mountains.” The multi-level Arcade has over 100 interactive games, and kids especially love Laser Tag, an indoor battle arena with “out of this world” lighting and sound. For a thrill of a lifetime, the MaxFlight Coast Simulator takes guests on an adventure into the world of virtual reality. This ride has a 360-degree range of motion that allows you to physically feel what can only be imagined in the “real” world. You must be in good health to ride the MaxFlight Simulator, not pregnant and it is not recommended if you suffer from claustrophobia. The Wacky Worm Roller Coaster is for people of all ages, and the Frog Hopper is an adventure ride for younger children. Adventure Landing also offers Batting Cages, for hardball, softball, slow or fast pitch. It’s great for individual or team practice.
