Weekdays 3PM - 7PM

Tampa’s Premier Water Park, Adventure Island will open for the 2023 season on March 4, with a new splash and play zone, Shaka-Laka Shores! The park’s newest addition will open in late March. The new splash and play zone, located in the heart of Adventure Island, will feature an area with 25 individual elements and a central kid-friendly play structure bound to entertain and engage even the youngest of guests. Shaka-Laka Shores will greet guests as they enter the park and showcase the waterpark’s overarching tropical paradise theme.

Shaka-Laka Shores will have more than two dozen playful elements, a variety of interactive aquatic components, all within a zero-depth area – ideal for smaller kids – as well as additional shaded areas. Shaka-Laka Shores will also have three new private cabanas featuring convenient access to the new area.

Super Cabana



The opening of Shaka-Laka Shores, along with recently opened attractions, Rapids Racer and Wahoo Remix, is part of the waterpark’s largest expansion in more than four decades. Guests are quickly immersed in a revitalized and vibrant theme from a newly designed front entrance and carried over into the park with new lounging areas, additional cabanas, and the place where you can find me, the full-service Hang Ten Tiki Bar.
