    As the sweltering temperatures reach the shores of Australia for Summer, cool down by sliding down some adrenaline pumping water rides or relaxing on a beach chair by the huge wave pool, all at Wet ‘n’ Wild Sydney.

     

    Sydney’s newest water theme park opened on the 12th of December and since then has been flooded with excited guests. The park is located in Western Sydney, only a 30-40 minute drive from Sydney’s CBD and with over 40 thrilling slides and attractions it provides entertainment for the whole family. I was lucky enough to be part of the team that opened Wet n Wild Sydney and try out the rides before the general public.

     

     

    There are a huge variety of rides and if you want to avoid the queues be sure to get to the park early or purchase a fast pass, which allows you to skip the lines and minimise waiting time.

     

    The 360 Rush, a 60ft free fall and 360 degree loop experience is perfect for the adventure seekers. The T5, swirls you through a 45ft dark funnel while the Tropical Cyclone has a series of twists and turns sure to leave you ecstatic. The H2GO racers allow up to 8 friends to race each other down some amazing water slides.

     

     

    The Beach is Australia’s largest wave pool and a big hit with both the young and the old. If you’re looking to simply relax, the beach is a perfect place to do so either on the beach chairs in the sand or in a cabana overlooking the beach. Boomerang Bay is an endless river where guests can drift along in inflatable donuts and choose between a gentle and relaxing route or a more thrilling one with waves and fountains. 

     

     

    There is also a specific section just for kids, Wet n Wild Junior, with 10 slides to ensure the kids don’t miss out on all the action. With various fountains and water features as well as the Southern hemisphere’s largest tipping bucket, kids are sure to be busy exploring the exciting water playground.

     

     

    There are two attractions, the Surf Deck and Skycoaster, that are not covered in the entrance price and require an additional fee, but they are well worth it. If you’re a surfer or always wanted to give surfing a go, the Surf Deck is perfect for riding some waves. Each session lasts 45 minutes and the intensity of waves is dependant on the level chosen, either beginner, moderate or advanced.

     

    The Skycoaster is great for those daring few who are not afraid of heights. Similar to a giant swing, the Skycoaster lifts 3 people 76 metres off the ground and enables them to fly at 60km per hour. The Skycoaster has been undergoing testing for the first few weeks and as a staff member I was lucky enough to test it out. Despite my initial nerves, it is truly amazing, the view is spectacular and it really does feel like you’re flying! The Skycoaster is due to open up to the public next week, so be sure to give it a go.

     

     

    Once the sun sets, the ambience of the park changes. A light show is put on display as the rides flash various bright colours. The thrilling experience of the rides is taken to another level after dark.

     

    Open from 10am to 11pm daily, Wet n Wild Sydney provides the whole family with an adventurous day out. Keep an eye out for information on the various social media websites that Wet n Wild hold, as the park frequently reaches maximum capacity.
