General Overview

Construction began in September 1982 on this water park originally known as Cades County Waterpark. It was renamed Cades County Wet'n'Wild in 1985 and shortened to just Wet'n'Wild in 1986 after a deal with the United States chain of the same name. Renamed to Wet'n'Wild Water World in 1997 to fit in with Warner Village Theme Parks' other parks (Sea World, Warner Bros. Movie World).

The original park cost $18 million to build and was owned and operated by the Herringe Group of Companies until 1989 when it was sold to Village Roadshow.

»One of my Favorites.
Terror Canyon and Terror Canyon II
28 Jan 2008 . When I visited these they were some of the best slides I've ridden and remain as such. While they are outclassed by newer attractions they remain some of the best slides at Wet'n'Wild. No matter what, the ride always seems different every time you ride the slides.


»It was worth the wait
25 Oct 2007 . The line went for ages but it was worth it! You finaly reach the top and i was dry at the time but then when you reach the end your soaked!

The only bad thing was carrying the raft up the stairs. Very Tiring.
