Holiday Nights at Island H20 Water Park includes two lighted Christmas trails: Dessert Island and Tropical Trail.
What is stressed spelled backwards? Desserts, of course! Take a delicious stroll through this candy-filled wonderland. Along the way you’ll find oversized cupcakes, ice cream cones, and lots of sweet photo opportunities.
My favorite part of Holiday Nights at Island H20 Water Park, the Tropical Trail is a one-way path filled with summertime imagery such as flowers, birds, and pineapples. Watch out! You might even come face-to-face with a Santa Shark!
If you prefer Santa in his human form, head to his Florida cottage for a special meet and greet with the Big Guy himself! Professional images will be available for purchase.
Island of Elves Scavenger Hunt
The elves are on a tropical vacation, and Santa needs you to find them. Grab a trusty map and search through the park for these adorable, fairytale creatures. Once all of the missing elves have been found, return to the front gift store for a special prize – a Christmas-themed lei! My kids LOVE a good scavenger hunt, and this was one of their favorites.
Holiday Nights Train Ride
Included in your event admission, climb aboard this adorable train for a quick ride through part of Island H20 Water Park.

Looking for a bit of Florida sledding? We might not have snow, but these inflatable hills still offer a satisfying taste of wintery fun. And BONUS-Adults can play too!
Blizzard Bash Foam Party
Ready for a snoap storm? Throughout the evening, you can visit the Blizzard Bash Foam Party for a few minutes of unforgettable fun. We had a blast dancing to the music and playing with all the foam.
