Adventure Island is a seasonal water park situated close to Busch Gardens Tampa Bay.
For the 2021 season the opening dates are from March 6 to October 31. Adventure Island is generally open every day from mid May to mid August, for the rest of the time, it tends to open around the weekends so do check before travelling.
Sometimes Adventure Island offers weekday (Monday to Friday) tickets which are ideal for local residents during the summer months.
Even if Florida residents cannot get a discount on the Adventure Island annual passes they can take advantage of EZpay which is an interest free payment plan spread over the twelve months.
Adventure Island Reservations
At that start of the COVID–19 pandemic whilst capacity was limited, you could not get into the Adventure Island Tampa Bay park without a specific date reservation, even if you had a multi-day ticket. Therefore you had to make an online reservation for each day you wished to visit.
In July 2021 this reservation restriction at Adventure Island Tampa Bay was lifted though Adventure Island do sometimes sell certain date specific tickets.
Adventure Island Florida Residents ticket options are:
- an Annual Fun Card to Adventure Island
- an Annual Fun Card to Busch Gardens Tampa Bay & Adventure Island
As well as park admission tickets you can also purchase cabana rentals and meal deals.
For admission to Adventure Island, children under 3 are admitted for free. There is no difference in price between adult and child (aged 3 and up) tickets.
To qualify for a Florida residents ticket you will need to provide proof of Florida residency with the appropriate ID.
The Fun Card is effectively an annual pass with a couple of restrictions; i.e. there are blackout dates and there is no free parking.
