Consistently described by visitors as a great place for families, Shipwreck Island Waterpark is a 20-acre facility that features a wave pool, a lazy river, several water slides and flumes, and two shallow pools perfect for novice swimmers. True to its name, it's also home to a replica of a 17th-century sailing ship that allows swimmers to zip line off the ship before dropping into a large lagoon pool. Along with the rides, the park also boasts concessions (though reviewers were not as impressed with the food as they were the attractions).
Recent travelers said the park was a great place to spend a day with the kids and said it never felt too crowded. Visitors particularly praised the facilities available for little swimmers and said a day here is worth the ticket price.
Shipwreck Island Waterpark sits about 2 miles west of the beach. Season opening and closing dates may vary, but generally, the park is open from late April to early October and welcomes guests from 10:30 a.m. to 4:30 or 5 p.m. Single-day tickets for adults cost $34.99; admission for children costs $29.99.
