Enjoy the Water Parks of Florida
by Adam Singleton

With glorious weather and wonderful scenery, Florida is the top destination for many holidaymakers from all round the world.

While its climate does occasionally produce some interesting weather, you will find plenty of time to make the most of Florida's water parks. There are lots of them and they are dotted quite evenly around the state. So wherever you are staying on holiday you won't be too far away from at least one of them.

One of the top venues to try must surely be Wet 'n' Wild. Located in Orlando, it takes up over two dozen acres in all, and packs them with enough water rides to keep all the family entertained all day long.

There are some challenging flumes and funnels ready and waiting for you, if you have the stomach for them! If you don't fancy riding solo you can always jump in an inflatable tube with the rest of your family and ride the Black Hole.

What other water parks are there in Florida? Is this the best one, or are there others vying to take that title?

You'll find Jacksonville Beach over on the east coast of Florida, and that is the home of Adventure Landing. This has miniature golf, batting cages and a lot more besides, but it's the Shipwreck Island Water Park you will love the most.

There are water slides and even a water coaster to enjoy here. The wave pool and a lazy river to navigate while sitting in a tube also combine to make this a wonderful day out during the summer months.

Some 300 miles south of Jacksonville Beach along the same coastline is the aptly named Rapids Water Park. This boasts more than two dozen water slides so you probably won't ride the same one twice!

They also have the largest Floridian water ride of all, which you will see even before you get inside the park. The blue and yellow funnel is what you will find yourself inside towards the end of the ride. Even though you are sitting in a large four person tube, you'll probably need to sit down after you have finished the ride. It's quite an experience.

There are lots of water parks along the west coast of Florida too, including Adventure Island and the Sunsplash Family Water Park. So when it comes to booking your Florida flights and accommodation, you shouldn't have far to travel to reach some of the best water rides in the state.

The great thing is, once all those high speed rides get to be too much, there are lazy rivers and swimming pools to enjoy as well. Just make sure you save those until last.
