Castaway Island offers two interactive water playgrounds: one for smaller children, with climbing features and a small slide, the other with features more suitable for older children, including buckets that regularly fill with water and dump it out onto the playground below. In 2007, the water park's original sand-bottom lagoon was replaced with a zero-entry, hard-bottom Swim Lagoon with a waterfall at one end. The aquatics complex also includes a marina with boat rentals.

The park's regular gate fee of $1.50/person (children 5 and under free) is also in effect on weekends and holidays. Applicable Florida sales tax will be added to all fees except gate fee.
