Wet ‘n Wild Orlando

Water Park on International Drive

Orlando’s long-running Wet n’ Wild – hailed as America’s first ever water park - still remains one of the most popular attractions in the Central Florida region today. Owned by Universal Resort Orlando, the park is located just off the busy International Drive – just opposite most of the Universal’s other big-name theme parks.

There is a mix of old and new slides and rides, with highlights at Wet n’ Wild including the Aqua Drag Racer, as well Blastaway Beach, 15,000 square feet of family-friendly water slides and soakers. The park is open daily from 10:00 with day tickets starting from $47.

Wet n’ Wild may be showing its age now (there are plans for it to close in 2016/2017), but that doesn’t mean it’s short on fun slides for the whole family. The most popular has got to be the Aqua Drag Racer, which the park claims to be ‘the tallest, fastest 4-lane drag race without wheels in Florida’. We also like the free fall style ‘Der Stuka’ ride, where riders slide down an almost vertical flume, with six levels in total.

As well as individual rides, Wet n’ Wild Orlando goes big on the ‘group rides’, such as the multi-passenger ‘Surge’ which takes you through 600-feet of steep turns. Another not-to-be-missed ride here is the new ‘The Black Hole The Next Generation’, which takes you through illuminated tubes depicting a space adventure from millions of light years away.

If high-adrenalin rides aren’t your thing, then Wet n’ Wild has plenty of slightly more laid-back fun, including the enormous Blastaway Beach – great for the kids with water fountains, jet soakers and smaller slides, as well as the very tranquil ‘Lazy River’ where you can float around the park on a rubber tube. No water park is complete without its very own wave pool; Wet n’ Wild’s one has waves of up to four-foot high across a total area of 17,000 square foot.
