#WaterparkWednesday – Enjoy late night partying in the sand at Island Nights in Adventure Island and Aquatica

One of the worst things about waterparks in the summer is the feeling that you’re probably going to melt. Sure, there are tons of amazing waterslides, wave pools, and lazy rivers to enjoy, but the oppressive summer heat can very easily turn a day of watery fun on it’s head, as you collapse onto a lounge chair and don’t want to get up again!

Join us during Island Nights® for tropical festivities that will make your summer unforgettable. Guests can enjoy island-inspired performers, a live DJ and games on the beach, starting at 5 p.m. each event night.
