The Island is closer to my house than Wild Waters, but that doesn't make it worth it. There isn't much grass or shade like there is at Wild Waters. The atmosphere just seems a little lacking without many trees. The rides are all good fun of course, and very wet, as they should be. To me the price is kind of expensive, but they have coupons to help that, and also season passes if you plan on going more than a couple times - then it becomes worth the money.
