7 Ways to Make a Splash at Island H2O
This Kissimmee water park at Sunset Walk fuses fun slides and rides with high-tech features, making for an experience that’s cool in every way.
Island H2O is a water park-lover's dream. Jam out to your favorite playlist, glide down video-embedded water slides, and score points for speed. Here are the top ways to chill, swim, play, and celebrate at Island H2O!
1. Take the Plunge With Your Playlist
Island H2O takes connectivity to a new level with the ability to connect your personal playlist to some of the attractions, including The Downloader. Experience dips, twists, and turns while listening to your own personal soundtrack — you control the music, so you can jam out to your favorite tunes while spinning around a sphere of watery fun. Look for the music symbol on park signs for rides enabled with this feature.
2. Feel Weightless on High-Speed Slides & Rides
Hashtag Heights is a high-flying boomerang experience featuring a steep drop with a dose of zero-gravity, making you feel weightless for a few seconds. This fast-moving slide features a video recording so you can relive the fun with your friends when the ride is over! The Profile Plunge and Follow Me Falls, two other high-speed tube slides, also offer big thrills and moments of weightlessness. These stomach-dropping rides are for everyone, but those under sixteen must be escorted by an adult.
3. Record Your Freefall for All to See
This social media-themed experience wouldn’t be complete without a video element! The Live Streaming body slide is a video-embedded water slide that delivers over 300 feet of heart-pounding fun. Featuring a vertical drop through a trapdoor, the Live Streaming slide allows you to relive the rush and share your freefall with a video recording post-slide.
4. Enjoy Pool Perfection & Lazy River Floats
Live! Lagoon is a giant wave pool in the center of the action. With ample seating, this area is the spot to catch live events and entertainment throughout the year. If waves aren’t your style, take a float on the Chat Creek lazy river, where the most excitement comes from dodging the overhead tipping buckets. Float around on one of the tubes provided or swim at your own pace.
Need a break from the kids? Escape to the adults-only Private Domain pool. This 21-and-up area provides a calm place to chill out between rides. Private Domain also hosts the Tag Shack, where you can find a refreshing beverage to help cool off on a hot day.
5. Race & Play, Water Park Style
Pick up some serious speed at Replay Racers! Race down the six-lane slide and rack up points for speed. This timed slide lets you see which of your friends is the fastest and provides ample opportunity for a rematch.
Looking for a bit of competition? Test your skills at Level Up! All ages can race across floating lily pads or enjoy a game of water basketball in this area, where the players stay cool and the competition is always friendly.
6. Take Your Little Ones to Splash Zones & Coves
Candy Stripe Cove is the sweetest place for the little ones to splash around. Six slides with gentle slopes and shallow water make this area perfect for the kids to enjoy some fun in the sun. Partially shaded seating is available in this area so parents can relax while the kids play.
Pelican’s Paradise splash zone also offers a milder version of the larger attractions, complete with five slides and a splash zone. This area features a large water dumping bucket, dropping hundreds of gallons of water on anyone standing below.
7. Rent a Cabana for the Ultimate Way to Lounge
Whether you want a bit of privacy for you and a few friends or you’re throwing a party for a large group, Island H2O Water Park has a cabana for you! Relax in style with amenities such as in-cabana food and drink service, refrigerator, bottled water, tables, lounge chairs, and private lockers with chargers to keep your digital devices connected.
