Wild Willy's Adventure Zone

 If you are looking for something fun to do with your kids on Okaloosa Island, Wild Willy's Adventure Zone is sure to provide hours of entertainment for all ages.

The Tree Top Challenge Rope Course is by the entrance for those who are brave enough! There is a height requirement to go up alone, but smaller children are allowed to go up with an adult. The course is not only fun, but the view is amazing because you can see the gulf and the sound.

Unfortunately guests are not allowed to take cameras or phones up (for good reason), so I don't have any photos from up above.

There are two golf courses: T-Rex Island (18 holes) and Hatchling Haven (9 holes).

We tried out Hatchling Haven, and the kids really enjoyed it.

Dinosaurs can be spotted along with the course along with relevant information.

If you look carefully you might even spot some dinosaur footprints along the way.

You never know when a powerful  mist will spray out on you so watch out!   :)   Don't worry, it feels great!

The battle boats were also fun!

When you get hungry or just need a break from the heat head inside Salvati's for DELICIOUS pizza. I promise you will not be disappointed. This is not your typical amusement park food. Salvati's is an Italian brick oven pizza restaurant featuring a full menu of specialty pizzas, roasted chicken, fried chicken wings, paninis, and salads. 

The Ptero Jump is another fun spot at Wild Willy's.

And what kids don't love inflatables...especially inflatables full of dinosaur eggs!

The arcade is state of the art with the coolest games I have seen. And trust me, my kid drags me to EVERY arcade he can find so I've seen my fair share.

The best part? There are no tokens or tickets to carry around. You simply use your WILD card to play keeps track of your "tickets".

Of course there is a large selection of loot to choose from after you finish playing games.

After games we decided to go try out the frozen yogurt. I am a total yogurt snob. I rarely find yogurt that I like, but this is great. I enjoyed the coconut mixed with the mango sunrise.

Cole enjoyed a little bit of EVERthing mixed together.

We had such a fun day that we almost forgot to go to the 4D theater. There are three movies to choose from, and we saw the Wild West. Let me tell you, Disney has nothing on Wild Willy's. The experience was so realistic and amazing - complete with effects and smells. I can't wait to go back and see another one.

Wild Willy's was such a fun experience, and we can't wait to go back. It is truly a fun time for all ages. Everyone we came in contact with was professional and friendly. I'm sure we will be regulars there this summer.

If you are looking for things to do with kids in Fort Walton Beach - head on over.

If you are staying in Destin, it's only a short drive over. You can find Wild Willy's here:
