Riptide Water Slide at Adventure Island Tampa Bay

Riptide

Dive Head First on the Racing Mat Slide

Race your friends down this four-lane water slide. 3, 2, 1, Go!

Florida’s first four-lane mat slide is a high-speed thrill ride making a splash at Adventure Island. Riptide allows guests to compete against three other riders for a competitive mat-slide adventure. All four racers are released simultaneously from a height of 55 feet into their own tubes, twisting through a hairpin turn before plunging into four open-air lanes for a drenching finish!
