Adventure Island unveils plans for two new attractions opening March 2022

As if the debut of a new tiki bar and the beginning of year-round operation wasn’t enough, one of America’s best water parks just announced even more new thrills are coming. In March of 2022, Adventure Island will unveil two massive new water slides to round out the expansion of their tropical oasis.

Recent visitors of Adventure Island have easily spotted the construction underway on the far eastern edge of the park. Now, park-goers know exactly what’s coming. First, the area will showcase a massive upgrade to the popular “Wahoo Run” group raft ride. Dubbed “Wahoo Remix,” the new ride will bring a first-of-its-kind visual and musical experience to Adventure Island, as the announcement detailed:

“Riders will enjoy waves of water and sound as they splash to the beat of a remixed favorite attraction,” the announcement explained. “Wahoo Remix will be Adventure Island’s first waterslide to feature synchronized light and sound elements, delivering an all-new, high energy, family raft ride experience with ultimate party vibes. Enclosed tunnels that were once dark will now glow and groove as riders zoom through over 600 feet of fun.”

Alongside Wahoo Remix, another 600-foot ride will make its debut as “Rapids Racer” pits riders against each other in a splashy sprint to the finish. Two-person rafts will duel alongside parallel courses with low walls, offering an eye-to-eye view of the competition. The ride will also feature the world’s first dueling saucer experience amidst the high-speed chase.

“The thrill of the chase is amplified as guests swirl through the world’s first dueling saucers in this exhilarating journey full of high-speed tunnels, turns, and more,” Adventure Island said.

Hang Ten Tiki Bar a fast favorite

The debut of these new slides will complete a massive upgrade to that area of Adventure Island, following the opening of the Hang Ten Tiki Bar earlier this month. Hang Ten has quickly become a favorite for the 21-and-over crowd thanks to its rum-soaked menu and craft beer offerings.

Conveniently located between the two new rides, just inside the main entrance to the park, Hang Ten features craft cocktails, frozen treats, local craft beer and an impressive selection of more than 20 international and regional rums. The tiki bar also offers surprisingly filling snacks with fresh-baked pretzels, fish spread and savory, piping hot empanadas.

And now you can enjoy it all year-round with heated pools and extended hours.
