Buying Adventure Island Tickets

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.


On this page you will find details and prices for Adventure Island standard one day tickets, combined multi park tickets, parking, Fun Cards and Quick Queue front-of-line upgrades. Note that Adventure Island does not offer Photo Key upgrades.

Adventure Island sometimes offers a weekday ticket plus special discounts for Florida Residents tickets and annual passes.

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 All Day Dining and Meal Deals

An All-Day Dining Deal can be purchased as an optional extra either separately or as part of the admission ticket. Sometimes Adventure Island bundle a special complimentary meal deal with their two and three park tickets.

The all-day-dining deal gives you up to one select entrée, one side item or dessert and one non-alcoholic drink each time through the line at Surfside Café or Mango Joe’s Café. You are allowed a maximum of one visit per hour and no sharing.

Items on the All-Day Dining Deal are marked with coloured dots.

The complimentary meal deal gives you one select entrée with accompanying side and a non-alcoholic drink per day.

If you are buying a multi-park ticket with a dining deal or all day dining then note that there are some restrictions on where you can eat.

The two park and three park all-day-dining deals are not valid at Sharks Underwater Grill, Dine with Orcas and the Flamecraft Bar at SeaWorld, Serengeti Overlook™ Restaurant at Busch Gardens or special events like the SeaWorld Seven Seas Festival or the Busch Gardens Food and Wine Festival.

The two park and three park meal deals are not valid at Sharks Underwater Grill and Dine with Orcas at SeaWorld, Serengeti Overlook™ Restaurant at Busch Gardens or special events like the SeaWorld Seven Seas Festival or the Busch Gardens Food and Wine Festival.

Adventure Island Quick Queue Front-Of-Line Upgrade

If you want to jump the lines to get on the rides quicker you can buy either a Quick Queue or Quick Queue Unlimited upgrade. To help with social distancing, Adventure Island temporarily paused their Quick Queue upgrades but they are now being sold again.

They have also introduced an all-season Quick Queue pass which is like the Quick Queue Unlimited pass but is valid for the whole 2021 season.

Also paused is a complimentary daily round-trip Busch Gardens/SeaWorld Shuttle Express service from Orlando to Tampa each day. Buses depart Orlando in the morning and returned from Tampa in the evening (they do not operate in the other direction; i.e. Tampa to Orlando in the morning). Reservations are recommended by calling 1–800–221–1339 but the service has been temporarily suspended.
