Busch Gardens Tampa Bay has announced that Adventure Island, Tampa’s water park, will debut Castaway Falls, in Spring 2024. The all-new multi-level, interactive water-play attraction will feature more than 100 play elements, including two giant tipping buckets that dump more than 1,300 gallons of water combined.


Castaway Falls will have four exciting water slides, soakers, flow pipes, hose jets, spray jets, water shooters, water curtains, tipping troughs, spinning and sliding buckets, and much more. The new attraction replaces the former splash area and is double the size of the former Splash Attack, making the new addition to Adventure Island bigger and splashier than ever before.


"We are thrilled about Adventure Island’s 2024 season!" said Stewart Clark, president of Busch Gardens Tampa Bay and Adventure Island. "With the unveiling of Castaway Falls, the largest expansion in the water park’s history continues, adding attractions, dining options and events to enhance the guest experience.”


Harmonizing with the water park’s paradise-like ambiance, Castaway Falls resembles a splash haven and a fun-filled retreat for the young and young-at-heart. Castaway Falls will immerse guests in a watery world of excitement, perfect for all park guests, even the littlest splashers.

Castaway Falls is part of the waterpark’s largest expansion in more than four decades. Said expansion includes a park-wide modernized theme, the recently opened Shaka-Laka Shores, water slides Rapids Racer and Wahoo Remix, the renovation of Captain Pete’s, the popular full-service Hang Ten Tiki Bar, and new lounging areas and cabanas.
