Shipwreck Island, located in the heart of Panama City Beach, is an exciting water park offering more than you can imagine. Rides like "Tree Top Drop," "Pirates Plunge," and "Raging Rapids" will thrill you until closing time. If you want to escape the heat, let the gentle currents of the "Lazy River" sweep you around the park. Admission is $29 for those taller than 50 inches, $24 for those between 35-50 inches, and free for anyone under 35 inches.
The ladies at my church went on a cruise and after we went on the cruise my mom and I went to shipwreck island i have no dislikes i love it im going again with my whole family this time if you are interested in going also you made a good choice
My wife and I were looking for something to take the kids (11,7,1) to do this past weekend.
We live an hour away from PCB in Defuniak Springs FL. I was working in PCB this past friday and ate lunch at Chic-Fil-A. While there I received a coupon that stated the following:
Buy one Adults ticket and get a childs admission free!
With this bit of "great" news I decided to bring my family down to the beach to a place that I really enjoyed as a kid.
When we arrived we were told not only that our 11 yr old girl didn't qualify as a "child" but that since our 7 yr old was taller than 50" he wasn't considered a "child" either.
This, in my opinion, is absolutely ridiculous!!!! How can a 7yr old not be considered a kid? The lady at the admission gate told me that I could not speak to a manager and that we had to pay full "adult" price for both of our kids no matter what the coupon said.
This is false advertisement and very unethical. I have spent the last of my hard earned money with this establishment.
OK, there seems to be a lot of misinformation here. First, the park is open (been twice this year)...it's seasonal like ALL water parks in Florida...believe me, you would NOT want to go to one in Feb or Mar. Second, if you're under 48 inches tall, there's only 2 rides you can't ride (both of my children are just under this, so I'm very familiar with it)...
As far as price, it's very competitive with other water parks I've been to in the state. Plan on spending about $45 per person...that's admission plus food/drink throughout the day. I have season passes for myself and my 2 kids and I spend a total of between $30 and $40 each day we go...that includes a locker rental, drinks (I have the refillable mugs...$1 refills!), lunch and a couple margaritas or beers for me.
Compared to Big Kahuna's in Destin, the park is a smaller but the cost is much less at Shipwreck...I feel nickel and dimed at Big Kahuna's...yes, they have more attractions, but they charge for them individually, they also charge for parking. I also do not want to play mini-golf or drive race-cars when I go to a water park...I can do those things separately all around Panama City Beach and not have to pay for a Water Park admission to do so.
I have no problems letting the kids out of my sight...there are lifeguards EVERYWHERE (even on the small "kiddie" slides), the park is clean and overall seems to provide a safe environment.
I've been going to Shipwreck since it was the Zoom Flume then Whata Water Wonderworld. Still decent value but sorry to say sliding in wrong direction as far as improvements. All the areas that used to give it character are now removed or boarded up (Skull Island, the stairway to The Great Shipwreck etc.) Guessing maybe management just trying to survive the economic downturn and maybe will invest some positive dollars once nationally things start looking up and the local school board awakens to the fact that the largest economic generator in the county needs summer employees. I digress.....we'll still go from time to time and hope in the future to see some changes to make more interesting. Bottom line, if your coming to PCB, you'll have fun in the park especially if you haven't already been there dozens of times like us. BTW still shedding a tear from the loss of Miracle Strip...
I think the park had some awesome rides. I took three teens and they had a blast. The park was really clean. The food was really good and they give you alot for your money. I didn't think it was expensive for a park . The employees at the food stands need to get a personality. They acted like they didn't have a brain or the courtesy to speak to you when you ask a question. Overall, I enjoyed our trip and will go back again.
I was surprised by how small this water park is for the price. My daughter was just under 48" and there wasn't much she could do...besides the kiddie areas which she thought were too babyish (she just turned 7) and just swimming in the pools. It is a nice little water park, but it is overpriced for just a few hours of fun.
The prices were insane... We have 2 small girls that couldn't even ride one ride all they were able to do is stay in the kiddie pool. and it cost us 55 dollars for them to just swim. Come on now I know its a vacation place but thats to much money.... For a faimly of 4 its cost us over 300 dollars.....
The staff was sooo nice but the park was smaller than I had expected. It is fun. Most of the tubes you have to be atleast 48" to go on so if you have small children don't plan on being able to do everything.
