When to Go

And if you’re more of a planner? We don’t blame you, either. Use some strategy when choosing which day to hit the park.

Adventure Island is no winter retreat. Cross off December, January, and February from your list as the park will be closed during these months.

When spring comes around, so does the water park! Select days are open beginning in March. You’ll have no trouble planning your visit during late spring and all summer long, as Adventure Island is open in May through August every day.
