Guests are in for the slide of their lives when Adventure Island® Tampa Bay's new epic drop slide, Vanish Point®, opens today, March 9, 2018.
Inspired by the point on a wave where water and gravity form a perfect partnership, the crest of this 70-foot tower challenges you with two 425 ft. wave paths. Step into one of two skyboxes, and face your fears as the floor disappearsbeneath you. Or, get horizontal on a 455-foot long slide ending with a high speed finale. 

TAMPA — From now on, call it ZooTampa at Lowry Park, and maybe bring a towel.
Officials at the former Lowry Park Zoo announced upgrades and a planned new water attraction Thursday, along with a new logo and name for the nearly 60-year-old zoo.  This spring, ZooTampa will open Roaring Springs, a boat ride that will allow passengers to catch glimpses of the surrounding park.
