I’ve been waiting seven long years for this moment. My eldest child’s first review of an attraction on this website. Nathaniel, aged 9 has been reticent to contribute to to the blog having relegated it to the list of “daggy things mum does”. A keen fan of waterparks Nathaniel spends much time on the internet searching the waterslides of the world. We couldn’t visit Queensland’s Gold Coast without taking him to one of the water parks and Wet ‘n’ Wild topped the list. I promised him if he starts writing reviews for this site he might just get his own category on this site (you may want to encourage him by adding some comments to this article).
Nathaniel’s brief for this review was specific – he was to share his experience of Wet ‘n’Wild Junior – the section of the waterpark for kids under ten. The reason for this is two fold – firstly, I was on little kid duty at during our day at Wet ‘n’ Wild hence all the photos I have are of the Wet ‘n’ Wild Junior area. Also – as this was Nathaniel’s only chance to experience it (he is turning ten at his next birthday) he made sure to go on all the waterslides in Wet ‘n’ Wild Junior.
What Nathaniel has to say:
In the summer school holidays 2017/ 2018 our family went to Wet ‘n’ Wild Gold Coast. I’m here to tell you about the under 10 area , Wet ‘n’ Wild Junior.
Wet n Wild is made up of two parts, a play area and miniature slides including a smaller version tornado. The play area has water jets ,water cannons slides and a bucket. Some of the slides are a halfpipe tube slide, a mini racing slide, a mini tornado like I said and more.
I think that it was a good area for little kids and would recommend taking your younger kids there.
I as always have my opinion on Wet ‘n” Wild Junior and have some tips to share with parents:
-As a parent that has been carting my kids to waterslides for a while Wet ‘n’ Wild Junior really is the best young kids area that I’ve seen at a waterpark. Often the waterparks only make a token effort to keep the young kids happy – Wet ‘n” Wild Junior is substantial and fun for kids aged 18 months to ten years.
-Shade is at a premium at busy periods and believe me you need some. Arrive at opening time (10am) to ensure you nab a shaded area.
-Dress your kids and yourself in rashes and hats – my own shoulders paid a price for the day at Wet “n” Wild.
-Bring an esky, cold drinks and a picnic lunch.
