By: Zona Marie Tan-Sheppard, ellaslist 2016
When is warm and the sun is in its full glory, our kids absolutely love to be outdoors splashing about and cooling down. So it’s no surprise that we are eager beavers to get to Wet’n’Wild Sydney waterpark this Summer.
Read these 10 awesome things we’re about to tell you about Wet’n’Wild Sydney and you’ll definitely want to grab the kids and make a mad dash for the world’s biggest ’n’ best water theme park.
- Lower Ticket Prices
At a time where the price of everything is going up, we’re super excited that Wet’n’Wild’s ticket prices have gone down! Single day tickets are now priced at $64 for little kids under 110cm tall, $99.00 for big kids over 110cm, while under-3s are free.
- Value For Money Season Passes
We reckon the best way to experience Sydney’s best summer playground is with a Season Pass because once you have a taste, the family will keep coming back for more. Forget the queues, get ahead and enjoy off-peak only access with a Bronze Pass (only $99), unlimited access during the whole 2016 season, free unlimited parking, massive discounts on the rides and more with a choice of the Silver, Gold or Platinum passes.
It’s Open Longer
- Remember the hassle of getting your family organised for a trip to the beach in the Eastern Suburbs or the Northern Beaches? Forget about that…once summer is in full swing, Wet’n’Wild will be open from 10am to 10pm! So head on over to Wet’n’Wild day or night for a more relaxing time with the whole family. How great is that for value for money?
- More Under 5-Friendly!
Your young ones will go mad for Nickelodeon Beach! Designed specifically for younger kids, Nickelodeon Beach features kid-friendly water slides including miniature versions of the larger thrill slides that’s guaranteed to keep them entertained all day. Features we also know your kids will love are the southern hemisphere’s largest tipping bucket, the kid-sized river on Mini Boomerang Bay and the interactive splash pads.
- It has the Best Beach in the West
If you live out West, there is no need to tackle the traffic to get to the beach. There’s one on your doorstep. In fact the spotless beaches at Wet’n’Wild Sydney are only 5.8km from Blacktown. Nickelodeon Beach is home to the world’s best known Nickelodeon characters Dora, Boots and Diego, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and the Bubble Guppies. Challenge the family to take selfie after selfie with your kids’ favourites and share them with us on Facebook and Instagram!
- Hire a Family Cabana
Having a central meeting point is a terrific way to spend the day without getting a panic attack about losing the kids. ellaslist loves the fact that you can book a Family Cabana and make it your hub for the day!
- Be a Wet’n’Wild Life Saver
Bet you didn’t know that your kids could be a Wet’n’Wild Nipper. Why drive to the Eastern/Northern Beaches to get when you can hang out at Australia’s largest wave pool and learn to be a Wet’n’Wild Life Saver?
