What are the best family water slides at Adventure Island in Tampa?

And I define family as slides as those that are suitable for the 42 inches and taller crowd. We didn’t analyze the slides that require riders to be taller than 48 inches, because I have one little peanut in the family so she didn’t make the cut for those slides, so we couldn’t test them out.

I’ve always loved water slides. I’m obsessed. It’s pretty much my favorite thing to do so I feel like I’m a decent judge. It had many years since I’d been to Adventure Island. Well, actually I made a trip there back in 2015 to test out the Colossal Curl as part of Morning Show. I LOVE the Colossal Curl because you can fit more than two people on the raft, but riders must be 48 inches or more, so we did not go on the Colossal Curl.

It was hard to pick favorites when we did this analysis because we really love all the water slides at Adventure Island. So basically, we tried to focus on which ones would be most enjoyed as family rides. Fun for the whole family!

  • 1. Wahoo Remix

    This is my favorite family raft because we all can fit on it. This is the one ride that you’ll be able to go on with the whole family on one tube. Love the music and tunnels.

  • 2. Solar Vortex

    Here’s another tube (for one or two in a tube slide) that excites you with the visual twists, lights, and music.

  • 3. Rapids Racer

    This is kind of like the Riptide, except it’s a straight shot down in double tubs instead of mats.

  • 4. Aruba Tuba

    You’ll get the thrill of a tube ride with some dark tunnels.

  • 5. Riptide

    This is cool if you want four family members to race at a time on a mat.

  • 6. Calypso Coaster

    This one is very similar to Aruba Tuba, except without the tunnels.
