Offering more rides and multi-person slides than any other water park in Orlando, Wet ‘n Wild is packed with thrills fit for the whole family. Guests can experience rides like Aqua Drag Racer™—the tallest and fastest four-lane tube-racing ride in Florida, Blastaway Beach™—Florida’s biggest family water play area, and The Surge—a multi-person tube ride with 600 feet of banked turns.

As it is closing for good at the end of the year, we wanted to go for a last visit. A couple of the slides were closed, but we enjoyed It all the same. It really is a shame to see it go.

Went with my girlfriend, had a fantastic day out. The rides were great and the staff were friendly and helpful. Would recommend to everyone
In a city dominated by lavish, highly "themed" and immaculate water parks, Wet'n'Wild's existence is a bit of an oddity. Located in the heart of International Drive (known by locals as tourist hell) this waterpark may seem outdated and generic at first glance. The park's skyline is dominated by exposed steel structures and its parking lot is offsite. How does it compete with the 3 other waterparks in Orlando? Wet'n'Wild differentiates itself with the most thrilling slide collection in Florida and with relatively cheap admission. Wet’n’Wild’s is perhaps the most barebones waterpark in Orlando. The place isn’t covered in fake snow like Blizzard Beach or made to resemble a tropical paradise like Aquatica or Blizzard Beach. Wet’n’Wild is a concrete jungle. Yes, there are trees and plenty of shade, but the park didn’t go to great lengths to create an alternative reality. The park might not be “beautiful”, but it is clean and generally maintained well. While other parks theme the landscape, Wet’n’Wild themes the actual rides. While other parks hide generic rides in a lavish environment, Wet’n’Wild does the opposite. I will give a few examples. Disco H20 is a 4 person raft ride. Inside the enclosed slide, disco music pumps through the speakers. After a steep drop, the raft goes into a “toilet bowl,” where there is a laser light show and even more music. Its incredible, and unlike anything else in Florida. BrainWash is another 4 person raft ride (WnW has many multi-person slides) that plummets riders into an evil scientist’s laboratory. The ride uses strobe lights and there is even a video projection inside the “tornado” portion of the ride. It is insane. There are some bad things about Wet’n’Wild. The food is your average, overpriced amusement park stuff. The food and ticket employees are largely unmotivated. It isn’t on the level of Disney. However, the life guards were great and the ride operators were efficient. Because Wet’n’Wild is so cheap, it attracts many locals who want to get away from Disney and experience some thrills. The blaring pop music can get a bit annoying. As long as you know what you’re getting into, you should have a great time. Go to Wet’n’Wild before it closes in December 2015!
Fun waterslides and the price is right. We've never visited any other Florida water parks, but we had a good time at Wet n Wild. The food is okay and decently priced. Crowds were not too bad when we visited.
