About Us

The Zoom Flume waterslide was the genesis of Shipwreck Island Waterpark when it opened in 1976. Over the next five years, The Raging Rapids and bumper boats were added. Beginning in 1983 the Zoom Flume and Rapids were merged into a unique tropical themed waterpark filled with attractions for family members of all ages. Our food and beverage quality, selection, and pricing is so good, many season pass holders just stop by for lunch, even when they aren’t coming to enjoy the park. The fifteen-acre park features lush landscaping, a professionally trained aquatics staff, and is one of the most hospitable attractions in all of North Florida.

 

Attractions

  • Ocean Motion Wave Pool is a 500,000-gallon pool that generates three foot waves every ten minutes. These waves contain cool, clear water without any creatures that may lurk in the ocean.
  • White Knuckle River is a 660-foot long twisting, winding inner tube ride that features tubes large enough for the entire family to twist, turn and splash down into a watery finale.
  • Tree Top Drop is actually two slides coming off of a 65-foot tall platform. One slide is a dark tube that drops onto a free fall slide that sends sliders down a rapid drop slide. The other choice is the Tree Top Drop enclosed twisting tube slide.
  • The Pirate’s Plunge Racing Slide is actually dueling slides side by side from a 60-foot tall tower. Riders can challenge their own nerves or other riders.
  • The Raging Rapids is over 300 feet of white water inner tube rafting. “The Rapids,” as they are affectionately known by so many guests, gives riders one of the best white water tubing slides you’ll find anywhere. The 50-foot splash down is a breath-taking finale.
  • The Zoom Flume is the oldest attraction at Shipwreck Island. Three flumes curve in, out and around a huge hill, and finally come together in a big splash pool.
  • The Great Shipwreck is a replica of a 17th century sailing ship. Guests zipline off the ship and drop into a beautiful lagoon pool.
  • The Lazy River is over 2,000 feet of a slow moving meandering river that provides the park’s most relaxing aquatic encounter.
  • Skull Island is a family activity pool that has a kiddy slide called Lickity Split, and a family racing slide called the Pirate’s Race. Skull Island also features a fort with a gigantic tipping bucket that unloads 700 gallons of water on awaiting guests every three or four minutes.
  • The Tadpole Hole is a gigantic children’s activity pool that includes a frog slide, a ship slide, an elephant slide, and a pelican slide.
