Adventure Landing celebrates opening of new interactive slide complex


Adventure Landing’s Shipwreck Island Waterpark in Jacksonville Beach hosted representatives from the JAX Chamber last week for a ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate the opening of a new $1 million interactive slide complex.

The pirate-themed waterslide complex features five slides and interactive water features, and replaces part of the original pirate village.

“Shipwreck Island Waterpark is celebrating its 23rd year,” said owner Hank Woodburn. “We’re constantly making improvements to offer the best experience to guests, groups and birthday parties celebrated here. Our new complex offers five slides with more water features that are more substantial than the previous village. There will simply be more for families to do and just in time for our spring and summer season.”

The Pirate Play Complex features attractions such as the Cannonball Burst, an enclosed slide for single riders with three 360-degree loops; Black Beard’s Revenge, an open flume body slide filled with twist and turns; and Pirate’s Plunge, a tunneling body slide featuring two 360-degree turns. Guests will also experience a bucket that sporadically dumps endless amounts of water. The youngest guests can safely enjoy the Junior Jolly, a wide platform waterslide and Sea Pups Racer, an open dual body slide racer.
