Opened in May 1999, Wet’n’Wild Hawaii is one of Oahu’s most popular family attractions with many options for adults, teens, kids and families of all ages. Located in Kapolei on 29-acres lush tropical acres set against natural cliffs the water park boasts more than 25 attractions offered on a rotating schedule. There are “chill” attractions for keiki and adults who want to simply relax on the water, slides and wave pool for a little more action, and pay-to-play extreme rides if you really want to get your heart pumping.
Families flock appreciate the childrens’ areas with kid-friendly fun action including mini-slides, splash pads, tipping buckets, water cannons, surfboards, spray features, and other keiki-size fun. For more moderate action, you can choose from a variety of water slides or the fabulous “Hawaiian Waters” 400,000-gallon wave pool where you can body board on machine-generated waves strikingly similar to the gentle rolling surf on Waikīkī Beach. There are no flat surf or jellyfish days at Wet’n’Wild! Thrill-seekers won’t be disappointed at the Shaka Slide, which plunges 36- feet in a nearly vertical drop, or the Tornado, which catapults guests through a swirling 45-foot funnel, plus other extreme pay-to-play experiences.
Be sure to read about height and other safety requirements for each ride. Guests who do not meet the posted ride requirements will not be able to ride. A five-rating signifies the most extreme experiences, down to the tamer activities in the one and two range.
