After almost 40 years of operation, Wet ‘n Wild will permanently close on December 31, 2016. Since its opening in 1977, Wet ‘n Wild Orlando has delivered smiles and wonderful memories. Wet ‘n Wild Orlando has been the birthplace of what is now considered a common part of the water park experience.
The spirit of Wet ‘n Wild will still continue in the development of Universal’s Volcano Bay, which is set to open in 2017. Universal’s Volcano Bay is a next-generation water theme park that will change the definition of a water park.
Wet ‘n Wild employees are expected to be transferred to Universal’s Volcano Bay or somewhere else at Universal Orlando.
