Island Oasis LOOKING FOR SUMMER FUN?
Island Oasis is the COOL place to be this summer.
The only water park of its kind between Lincoln and Denver.


Grab you sunglasses; throw on your swimsuit
and discover a day of summer fun at Island
Oasis Water Park.


Racing down one of four giant waterslides and attempting to
conquer the surf in their 350 thousand-gallon wave pool is
only the beginning of summer fun at the Water Park.


You will encounter sprays, bubbles, fountains, and showers as you float down the new
750-foot lazy river. This endless river ride has zero depth access and winding curves just
waiting for your exploration.


Kids will love the zero depth area that includes spraying fountains and a wacky wet
otter slide. Plus?.they can build castles in the sand, stroll across the lily pads, or test
their skills on the log walk.


Enjoy a match of sand volleyball, take a dip to cool off, then refuel at their full concession
and patio area. Qualified lifeguards are always on duty.


The excitement is mounting as the six-acre complex opens May 26th through the
summer. Easy access to this six-acre complex located northwest of Fonner Park, go two
blocks east of Locust Street on Fonner Park Road.

$4.00 ages 5-15, $5.00 ages 16-54, $4.00 ages 55, children under 4 are FREE, and a family one day pass is $15 (2 adults & up to 4 children).
