Wet n' Wild is a local water-based amusement park that offers two things: luke-warm water, and lines long enough to waste two days on an Orlando Flexi-Ticket. The park boasts technologically superior water-slides at a fraction of the cost to visit a Disney water-park. Unfortunately, unless you go in the super-awesome off-season, you might not see but half of what the park has to offer.
My favorite slide, "The Storm", is a pipeline slide that propels you into a large bowl where you get to experience sliding along a giant toilet, before plummeting through the hole in the center and dropping six feet into freezing cold water. The experience is themed with broken strobe lights, a "rain-storm" (water misters along the top of the bowl) and thunder/lightning sound-effects reminiscent of that crappy Halloween sound-effects CD you bought at the dollar store. However, the 30-45 second experience is undermined by the 30-45 minute wait on the most cramped and uncomfortable spiral staircase in existence.
If slides aren't your thing, the park also features the staple "lazy-river" tube ride, but navigating past hormone-crazed teenagers making-out around eveyr corner, and children who scream to their parents that their raft is too scary make the relaxing river ride more like a trip down the River Styx.
Visiting in the off season (anytime that's not between mid-April to mid-August) can provide a good day of fun rides and experiences that can be shared by the whole family, or with a group of friends. A kid-friendly play that appears rather clean can assure parents that the E-Coli scares from the 1990's are gone, and plenty of thrill rides prove excellent re-ride value to teens and young adults alike. The wave pool and river allow adults a chance to get away from the ridiculous rock-and-roll theme songs of the slides. But make sure you all gather back up for a ride on the Disco H2O (a 1970's themed raft-ride similar to The Storm) and the Brain Washer, an giant cone-shaped slide that provides an awesome trippy experience at high speeds.
So if you're visiting during a warm time of year and the parks aren't to crowded, it's worth a try, but anytime during summer it's a disastrous waste of money that could easily have gone towards a dinner show.
