While I am so ready for Fall weather, there are those summer days spent in the water with the kids, that I will miss. One of the most fun days spent with my family aside from our recent white water rafting experience this summer was at Wild Island Family Adventure Park, in Sparks, NV. This was our first visit to Wild Island Family Adventure Park, but I guarantee it won’t be the last. As I have been taking inventory of our summer, and what has impacted me the most, I thought I’d write about how fun it would be to say goodbye to summer at Wild Island Family Adventure Park.
Wild Island Family Adventure Park is not your typical water park. They have so much more to offer. While we absolutely loved the water slides, lazy river and wave pool, but the food was also really good. With three different food stands, there is quite the variety of meal options – sure to please everyone in your crew.
We had our own private cabana, right alongside the wave pool, and it made for a nice retreat for lunch and breaks. Having a cabana was also great for meeting back up with everyone, to avoid anyone lost at the water park – a fear I used to have when the kids were younger.
Whether you are a thrill seeker (the Scorpion is for you, a four-story half pipe in water), or like to slide in leisure (Tortuga is easy and fun for all ages), there is something for everyone. Then when you’re ready to retreat from the outdoors, you can head over to Wild Island’s Coconut Bowl. Inside you’ll find bowling, Pirate Cove black light mini golf, High Ballocity, the XD Adventure Theater and laser mazes.
Once you have cooled off, head back outside to play a round of outdoor mini golf or ride the Go Karts. The twins were disappointed they weren’t tall enough to ride alone, but since we are a family of 6, everyone had someone to ride with. It was so much fun!
Wild Island Family Adventure Park has so much to offer year-round, but you can still catch the water fun for a couple more weeks, on the weekends only. Head back out and catch some sun before summer is officially over, and don’t forget to make a visit next summer. For those who don’t live in the area, but travel through Nevada, make this place a stop! Truly a ton of fun!
