Island H2O

Island H20 Water Park, which is located right next to Margaritaville Resort Orlando in Kissimmee is celebrating making a splash—literally—as it is named one of the Best Outdoor Water Parks in the nation by USA TODAY’s 10Best Readers’ Choice awards.

Featuring over 20 rides, slides and attractions, as well as themed seasonal events, the water park is distinguished for being one of the most tech-friendly water parks in the nation.

Whether looking for a mild or wild experience, the water park is sure to please each member of the family. Visitors can splash in the wave pool, chill in the lazy river, get soaked in the kids’ zone, or enjoy friendly competition on mat racers and tube rides. Thrill-seekers can enjoy adrenaline-pumping drop slides and raft rides taking them on a high-speed journey through twists, turns and vertical drops. The one-of-a-kind water park is themed around social media and offers free selfie stations, video booths, as well as a looping video-embedded water slide to capture on-ride footage for easy social media sharing in real time. Guests can also customize their on-ride experience by selecting their own music and lighting via a state-of-the-art wristband system, and earn points each time they ride with a simple tap of their wristband. Points can be redeemed for perks like free ice cream and merchandise in the park.

“We are incredibly proud and honored to receive this award from USA TODAY readers,” said Todd Andrus, Island H2O Water Park Senior Director of Regional Marketing. “We always strive to create memorable experiences for our guests through fun and exciting events and programming. This award is a testament to our team's diligent work and dedication to excellence.”
