The depth of the water ranges anywhere from 4 feet to 20 feet, and all guests are required to wear life vests for their safety. There are also numerous lifeguards around the “islands” to make sure that everyone’s safe. A safety briefing is also conducted right before guests go in, for additional safety.
There are 2 main areas in Inflatable Island, with one for adults and the other one for kids. Walking around on an island is a very unique experience since it seems unstable, yet very slippery.
