Shipwreck Island Hits the Top 25!
Panama City Beach’s own Shipwreck Island Waterpark was listed as one of the top 25 waterparks in the country this summer! Rated #18 on Tripadvisor’s 25 Best Waterparks in America, this is the perfect place for a day of family fun on Panama City Beach if you’re ready for a break from the sand. With a 500,000-gallon Wave Pool, a massive kiddie play area known as the Tadpole Hole, a relaxing Lazy River, and a variety of other rides, Shipwreck Island Waterpark is fun for all ages.
For those looking for thrills, the Tree Top Drop and Free Fall are definitely on top of your to-do list! Tree Top Drop is a fully enclosed tube ride that races from a 65-foot-tall platform into a watery finale. The Free Fall starts as an enclosed tube ride then shoots riders out on a free fall drop slide. Other great rides include the Rapid River Run is a white water experience with twists and turns and waterfalls and one thrilling splash down into the river’s catch pool, The Zoom Flume is a classic “mat” waterslide that parents can enjoy riding double with their children, and even the multiple person tube ride – The White Knuckle River – as it twists and turns riders down nearly 400 feet of winding slide to a huge splash into the pool at the end.
While the thrill seekers have plenty of slides and rides to enjoy, those who are looking for a more relaxed day can enjoy a long ride down the Lazy River, sunbathing in the shallow water of the beachstyle entry Wave Pool, and or kicking back in one of the many lounge chairs or umbrella tables with a refreshing beverage! There’s also tons of food venues to choose from that offer up everything from Hot Dogs and Pizza to Meatball Subs, Burgers, Salads and even desserts!
Shipwreck Island Waterpark is located just 1 mile from the Holiday Inn Resort making it a convenient option for resort guests to enjoy, but it’s only open from Memorial Day to Labor Day so to check their schedule http://www.shipwreckisland.com/park-information/ to be sure you’ll be able to visit the waterpark during your summer beach vacation!
