FEATURED LISTING: Florida ::: Wet n Wild


Wet n Wild

Introducing Wet ‘n Wild’s raging new tube ride that will soak you to the core. This is no ordinary water ride – it’s The Blast. Blasting water thrills, colorful icons and fun sound effects stimulate the rider’s senses on this unpredictable journey.

Guests are left unprepared for the many twists and turns, explosive pipe bursts and drenching waterspouts that lead up to the final waterfall plunge. This unique two passenger thrill ride experience is sure to leave riders completely soaked.

The new water thrill ride adventure is an excellent addition to the already established collection of world-class rides and signature slides located within Wet ‘n Wild.

Wet ‘n Wild is continuously renovating and improving to keep its rein as one of the world’s best-attended water parks. An entire makeover of the Kids’ Park attraction was completed early last year and other popular sections of the park, including the area around the Surf Lagoon wave pool, have been updated with a focus on more lush scenery.
