Wet n Wild on the Gold Coast


Wet n Wild is one of Queensland's three world class theme parks. It is a great water park for the whole family and, with one ticket (the SuperPass), you can also access Sea World and Movie World. In the case of Movie World Gold Coast, it's right next door so no worries there.

The SuperPass costs A$60 for an adult or A$35 for children and seniors.

As with the other parks Wet n Wild is closed on Christmas (December 25th) and Anzac Day (April 25th). Wet and Wild is open from 10am-4pm or 5pm depending on time of year. During winter the park closes at 4pm but, as the pools and rides are heated, you can still enjoy the water during the day.

One of the great features of this park is the Splash Cash wrist band.

Even though Australian dollar bills are waterproof, they can still fall out of your pocket while you are zipping around the rides.  The wrist band allows you to load money onto it for spending at the food and drinks vendors throughout the park.

Wet n Wild has six water slides where you can race your friends or go down together in a big inner tube. There's also Calypso Bay, a lazy river type feature, and the whirlpool hot springs, which both allow you to relax and soak up some sun.

For the kids, and the big kids in the group, there's Buccaneer Bay, a water park, with water cannons and other playground features. There's also a wave pool to give you the chance to experience the ocean without having to go in the ocean.

If you need to dry off for a bit, there's Skycoaster, a bungee swing, and also a Zipline to give you some time out of the water.

Visit their site for latest details on tickets and rides.

Another great feature of Movie World Gold Coast and Wet N Wild is their packages with Sea World Resort. If you're planning to stay on the Gold Coast then the Sea World resort is a great way to save money while getting a hotel in a great location and with excellent amenities.

So Why Not Stay at the Seaworld Resort!

Sea World resort is on the coast at Broadwater, with beach access and right next door to Sea World theme park and reasonably close to Wet n Wild.

The Resort also has jetty and pontoon access for boats.

It's close to Surfer's Paradise, the heart of the Gold Coast's night life, tourist centre, and shopping.

In the hotel there's a 50 metre pool with a waterfall, a children's paddling pool, a spa, and a tennis court and gym. As well for the kids. there's a playground, Kid's Club and games room and a water playground.
