Gold Coast water park Wet'n'Wild Water World broke the mark for one million annual guests on Wednesday, catapulting the park to become the third most attended water park in the world.
Behind two giants - Disney's Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach at Walt Disney World in Orlando Florida - sits Wet'n'Wild Water World celebrating its most successful year ever with one million guests.
Warner Village Theme Parks Chief Operating Officer Steve Peet said that Warner Village Theme Parks had experienced a sensational summer across all parks including Sea World, Warner Bros. Movie World, Wet’n’Wild Water World and Australian Outback Spectacular.
“Wet'n'Wild Water World had its biggest ever summer this year since opening in 1984, with record attendances achieved not only for one day visits, but for the financial year also.”
Mr Peet said that Wet'n'Wild Water World’s newly completed Extreme H2O Zone and the prolonged summer season had fuelled significant interest from local and interstate visitors.
He also confirmed plans for a variety of new attractions and events planned for the coming summer.
“We’ve made an ongoing commitment to be the home of Australia’s biggest selection of water rides and the best line up of summer events, and as such have a number of new attractions and activities in the pipeline”.
Surf Rider will open later in the year at the park, blurring the line between roller coaster and water ride, as well as other yet-to-be revealed attractions.
“We are absolutely committed to create a full day of fun on all our rides and attractions, which extends into the evenings with our seasonal operation of Dive’n’Movies.
“The Gold Coast’s position as the entertainment capital of Australia is largely supported by our development and marketing of new attractions,” added Mr Peet.
