Wet n Wild in Orlando, Florida

Florida Guide > Other Parks

Wet ’n Wild was the first water park to open in Orlando and despite both Disney and Seaworld opening water parks Wet’ Wild still stays very busy.

There are so many different things to do here. You can start with the Black Hole where you and another person can go on a two-person raft propelled by a 1, 000 gallon-a-minute blast of water which sends you on a 30-second, run-away journey through 500 feet of twisting, turning darkness.

On the Flyer you are seated in eight-foot long toboggans and begin your descent from a vantage point located 40 feet above the park. The momentum builds with the first curve of the course sending the toboggan twisting and turning as it circles above the park spiraling downward. You then race through over 450 feet of banked curves and speed-enhancing straights before you glide to a stop in the final run-out lanes below!

All the family can enjoy Bubba Tub where groups of four people splash, laugh and scream with delight ( or fright! ) as they plunge down a six-story, triple-dip slide in a tube big enough for the entire family.

On to the Surge which is a multi-passenger ride that takes you on an incredible journey from a six-story tower twisting and turning through almost 600 feet of exciting, banked curves.

The Blast is a tube ride where you encounter many twists and turns, explosive pipe bursts and drenching waterspouts that lead up to a final waterfall plunge.

A four-person cloverleaf raft descends through a time warp, toward a watery disco nightclub, the Disco H20. Once “inside, ” you’ll find yourself rotating around the aqua club surrounded by music, lights, and disco balls while you hear music of the 70’s.

If you like thrill rides go to Blue Niagara where you will discover the excitement of this slide as you race, turn and splash through 300-feet of intertwined looping tubes that twist from six stories above the park and conclude with a splash landing.

Another thrill ride is the Bomb Bay which is designed to operate like the area in the fuselage of a military plane from which bombs are dropped. Enter a bomb-like capsule and you feel the floor drop from beneath you as you take a plunge down a 76-foot high, nearly vertical slide.

Wet n Wild is famed for Der Stuka a thrill ride which involves is a six-story speed slide which lets you ' free fall' down a 250-foot slide, then coast to a stop along a 115-foot long water runway.

The Hydra Fighter allows guests to create their own unique water ride experience. Guests are seated in back-to-back swings equipped with water cannons. By regulating the water pressure, guests control how high and fast the swing goes. This is great fun.

Smaller kids do not have to miss out on the fun at Wet ' n Wild because Wet ' n Wild' s Kids' features miniature versions of the park' s most popular adult attractions.

Children love the Bubble Up which is a large, multi-colored air-filled balloon. It is crowned with a mushroom-shaped fountain that sprays water over the Bubble Up' s slippery surface. Children can climb to the top with the aid of a rope and then bounce down the side into the three-foot-deep landing pool while their friends squirt them with water guns. Children must be 42' to 64' in height and under 13 years of age.

Kids Park is for children under 48 inches high. Here there is a large area for children and included in this is a 5-foot tall sand bucket that periodically fills with water, overflows and creates a waterfall from high atop a kid-sized sandcastle. Children can splash about on miniature versions of our adult rides and enjoy lots of thrills at a gentle speed.

If you need to take a break from the rides and soak up the sun you can enjoy the Lazy River, Wave Pool, Volleyball, or spend time on the Wet ' n Wild beach. Do be careful and apply plenty of sun protection.
