Built on the site of Wet ‘n Wild’s current kids’ park, the new
attraction will be a beach-themed area unto itself with only one
entrance/exit. The area will include dedicated seating set amidst lush,
tropical landscaping. “We’ve all seen kid’s areas at waterparks”, Mr. Black
stated, “but this will be bigger and unlike any other around. It will be fun
and engaging for everyone, stimulating our youngest guests and
delighting entire families.”
