Attractions That Have Reopened in PCB

  • 09 Jun 2020

During Florida’s stay at home orders, most of the city’s attractions temporarily closed. As Florida begins its reopening process, the local attractions have opened with a few modifications. Always check with the attractions for the most up-to-date information and operating procedures!


Shipwreck Island Water Park

Open daily from 10:30 AM – 5:00 PM

If you’ve visited Panama City Beach before, you have more than likely spent the day at Shipwreck Island Water Park. Shipwreck Island has been awarded the 3rd best water park in the United States by TripAdvisor for two years in a row, and it is easy to see why. Kids and adults alike can spend the day racing between the Lazy River, Wave Pool, Zoom Flume, White Knuckle Rapids, and more! Shipwreck Island’s plan for reopening was approved by the Governor and new guidelines including staying six feet apart on lines for rides and dunking inner tubes and life jackets in the chlorinated water before use have been implemented. Additional hand washing stations have been added throughout the waterpark, as well.
