Welcome to one of the premier indoor water parks in the area. Built in 2001, Adventure Island offers year round, indoor fun for the entire family. Zoom down the 20 foot high water slide; jump off the one-meter or three-meter diving boards; stay fit by swimming laps in one of the (8) 25 yard lap lanes; enjoy the warm water therapy pool to relieve joint/muscle pain; or just play in our leisure pool with tumbling toucans, floor geysers, a ship wrecked boat slide, spray arches, or spinning vortex. Whatever your recreation goals are, we’ve got you covered.

We are excited to announce the City of Elgin has joined USA Swimming Foundation’s water safety initiative, Make a Splash. Consistent with the goal of saving lives and providing every child in America with the opportunity to learn how to swim, Make a Splash, a national child-focused water safety initiative, was created by the USA Swimming Foundation in 2007. Make a Splash partners with learn-to-swim providers across the country to provide swimming lessons and educate kids on the importance of learning how to swim. Many partner programs are located in disadvantaged or ethnically diverse communities and provide training programs (including certified instructors, resources and quality programming) to help children become water-safe and share with them a lifelong physical fitness activity. Make a Splash’s awareness campaign is built around the staggering statistics that minority children ages 5-14 are most at risk for drowning, and drowning is the second leading cause of accidental death for children under the age of 14. Make a Splash educates parents through a national awareness campaign; saves lives by joining forces with grassroots learn-to-swim programs and reaches millions of children through its programming, promotions and publicity tours.
