Wet and Wild Gold Coast is one of the best water theme parks in Australia. This is probably one of the most favourite theme parks out of the three Village Roadshow theme parks on the Gold Coast. It features the world’s latest water slides, leisure pools and other attractions, and it is located adjacent to Warner Brothers Movie World. Here are Holiday Holiday’s 10 must do Wet and Wild Gold Coast rides and slides, and # 5 may not just be what you expected.
Take the Tornado and get in a four person clover-leaf tube and blast down a 40 metre long tunnel with speeds of up to 40km/h. Begin your journey from a 15 metre high platform, at this height and speed, Tornado is only for the brave!
Jump on board one of the biggest waves in the world and surf your way to heart pounding action. You’ll be strapped onto a giant surfboard with your fellow surfers, gliding up and down a giant 30 metre wave while spinning round and round. Experience 60 heart pumping seconds thrills with speeds of up to 70 km/h and be ready for 360 degree turns. This ride is certainly NOT for the faint hearted.
Are you ready to take on the tightest and meanest turns in the world and hit speeds of up to 30km/h? Survive the triple 360 degree coils of the massive snake and splash down into the turbulent waters below. Get ready to slip and slide your way into the belly of the snake!
For gut wrenching, adrenaline pumping, gravity defying action, take the AquaLoops. You will enter the trap door before being released down a giant 40 foot heart stopping free fall drop, and up into a full looping slide at insane speeds of up to 60 km/h.
Take on the thrilling Blackhole at the Extreme H20 Zones as you are sent into an adrenaline pumping pitch black spiral of darkness at speeds of up to 40km/h. Pitch black, and we mean pitch black spirals. If you are scared of the dark, perhaps this ride is NOT FOR YOU!
Don’t let go as you get ready to plunge down a near vertical 11 metre drop at a steep 70 degree angle, and reach speeds of up to 50 km/h! This giant U-shaped slide will have you clinging onto your two-person tube for dear life as you fly in forward and reverse motions.
Sidewinders are the two longest slides at Wet’n’Wild Gold Coast spanning across 160 metres. Can you handle sliding through 160 metres of twists and turns in open air flumes?
Get ready for some family fun with the three follwoing family slides:
Challenge your friends and family to a ride on the Super 8 Aqua Racer as you plunge head first down the 86 metre long slides. Reach speeds of up to 40 km/h on one of the most advanced racing slides in the world. With the help of sensors at the finish line, each slider receives their placing to an accuracy of 1/1000th of a second. Who is going to be the winner?
Share an awesome white-water rafting experience on Mammoth Falls with the whole family. Wind around the raging rapids in mammoth four-person tubes on this 4.5 metre wide, 250 metre long slide, as you twist and turn all the way to the bottom.
Most definitely a family favourite at Wet’n’Wild. Climb to the top of White Water Mountain to find the entrance to the two open and two closed slides. Choose the slide that you like and race down the rapids. These slides wind their way over 150 metres to the splashdown zone. Catch your child in the splashdown zone and don’t let go!
How about if we just chill if rides and slides are not your thing? Check out the various low and moderate thrill level precincts:
Cool off and splash about in the crystal clear waters of the Giant Wave Pool and enjoy the intermittent cycle of the gentle waves. Immerse yourself in 3 million litres of water and relax in the shallows as you wait for the waves to roll in.
Mini slides for the mini-me’s. Wet’n’Wild Junior features kid-friendly water slides including miniature versions of the larger thrill slides like Tornado and the Aqua Racers. Wet’n’Wild Junior also includes a fun multi-level interactive play structure which features a giant tipping bucket.
Laze back in a tube and gently meander down a slow flowing, crystal blue, tropical island river, drifting through sub-tropical gardens, the remains of a pirate castle and a Caribbean Shanty town.
Cool off in the hot summer sun and warm up in the cooler winter months. Relax in one of the huge hot tubs in winter and unwind in the calming cold waters of the summer springs – the perfect place to chill out after a day of adrenaline-pumping action.
