This brand-new, high tech waterpark makes having fun a breeze!

Island H20 Live!
Live The Island Life All Year
Island H20 Live! is now open! This amazing, completely interactive water park is a refreshing change to our current Central Florida water park landscape. Skip the entry lines and buy your tickets online, where you can set up your wristband ahead of your visit. Parking is free and convenient (no shuttle buses, people), but bring your own towels! Once you arrive, leave your wallet in a locker, because your wristband buys you food, drinks, merchandising, and allows you to communicate with the park itself!
Island H2O Live! is completely interactive with games and experiences that let you earn points good for food and merchandise discounts, and the ability to control the streaming playlist. You can even take part in their Live! feeds (why not show everybody what a great day you are having?)!.
Rides, Slides, and Rapids
With 8 different slide rides for big kids and adults alike, you'll have a hard time deciding which one is your favorite. We liked the classic Reply Racers, where you go head to head with fellow racers in your own lane. So many of the slides offer multi-rider experiences, including Follow Me Falls, where riders fall quickly, only to immediately ascend up a vertical wall to experience a moment of weightlessness. Yeah, that happened!
Pools & Rivers
Chat Creek is THE lazy river destination we all know and love. It's big, it's deep enough but not too deep (3' 6") and it's fun. For a more competitive vibe, make your way to Level Up, and entire area devoted to the sports fan. Want some peace and quiet? There's an adult pool too! Private Domain pool area is the escape you've been looking for.
For The Little Ones
Island H20 Live! offers two areas just for the kids: Candy Stripe Cove and Pelican's Paradise. At Candy Stripe Cove, kids can explore a color array of rides and slides themed in bright hues and made for even the smallest splashers to enjoy and easily tackle! Or head to Pelican's Paradise to play and climb in a multi-level water play zone! This area offers zero entry areas for easy in and out access, and plenty of seating so parents can keep a close eye on their little adventurers.
You cannot beat this deal in Central Florida! Adults are $49.99 / Children Under 48" / $42.99, but it's less expensive if you purchase your tickets online! Annual passes are only $89.99.
