Wet 'n Wild - Part 1
I want to tell you all about this great water park in Orlando. This park is located on International Drive, the easiest way to get to it is to drive down Interstate 4 and then come off at exit 74AB or exit 75AB If you come off at Exit 74 you follow the road to International Drive, the road your on is Sand Lake Road, as you approach the lights you need to get into your left lane and then turn left onto International Drive, you then continue for about a mile and half until you see the big slides on your right, you can’t miss it. If you was coming off at exit 75 then you follow the road to International Drive and then keep to your right and then turn right at the lights for International Drive and you only drive for about half a mile and Wet’nWild is on your left.
Now to the Important bit what is this park really like, well I thought this park had everything you would ever want from a water park, huge slides, thrill rides and a gigantic wave machine in a huge lagoon for everyone. We start with the thrill rides; I will break these into 7 categories.
First is the Blue Niagara, Discover the excitement of this slide as you race, turn and splash through 300-feet of intertwined looping tubes that twist from six stories above the park and conclude with a splash landing.
Next is the bomb bay. The Bomb Bay is designed to operate like the area in the fuselage of a military plane from which bombs are dropped. Enter a bomb-like capsule and feel the floor drop from beneath you as you take a heart-stopping plunge down a 76-foot high, nearly vertical slide.
Next is the Der Stuka. Wet 'n Wild's first signature thrill ride, the Der Stuka, is a six-story speed slide which lets you "free fall" down a 250-foot slide, then coast to a stop along a 115-foot long water runway.
Next is Mach 5. Choose from three different flumes totaling 1,700 feet that twist and turn over different thrill courses ending in an exhilarating splash below.
Now for the Hydra Fighter, The Hydra Fighter is the first water ride in the Orlando area that allows guests to create their own unique water ride experience. Guests are seated in back-to-back swings equipped with water cannons. By regulating the water pressure, guests control how high and fast the swing goes.
Next up is the Storm, Wet 'n Wild's swirling body coaster a whirl! Reach maximum speed as you drop from an elevated chute into a giant open bowl where you spin in circles to a splash landing! It's a raging ride that will blow you away.
The last thrill ride is the wake Zone. The wake zone has no less than 3 different rides, which consist of the Wakeboard, the Knee ski, and the wild one. I won’t say too much but let’s just say it has something to do with a speedboat and skies and boards, I think you get the picture.
I will return with my second Installment of Wet ’n Wild.
