Hey Thrill Seekers,
As we all know, sadly Universals Wet ‘N Wild is permanently closing on the 31st December 2016. Due to this closure there has been some changes to the operating calendar for the remainder of this year.
From November onward Wet ‘n Wild will be closed on Wednesdays and Thursdays. There is however an exception to this as the park will remain open every day during the weeks of Thanksgiving and Christmas.
“Wet ‘n Wild will be open each day of the week except Wednesdays and Thursdays for the remainder of the year. As an exception, it will be open November 23-24 and December 28-29 during normal park operating hours of 11am-5pm. This partial, seasonal, adjust of hours is common in the water park industry.”
Wet ‘n Wild will be closed on the following dates:
November – 2nd, 3rd, 9th, 10th, 16th, 17th, 30th.
December – 1st, 7th, 8th, 14th, 15th, 21st, 22nd.
The parks operating hours will be 11am – 5pm for all of the dates that it is open with the exception of the 26th December – 31st December where it will be open between the hours of 10am – 5pm.
Wet ’n Wild opened in 1977 (this was waaaaay before i was born!!) and has been owned by Universal since 1998. Upon announcing the closure Universal stated:
“Since its opening in 1977, Wet ‘n Wild Orlando has been a place where guests have created wonderful memories. As America’s first water park, Wet ‘n Wild has been the birthplace of numerous innovations that are now considered a common part of the water park experience.”
It will be very sad to see Wet ‘n Wild close at the end of the year and if you’re wanting to visit again one last time before it closes for good, or if you haven’t ever been to Wet ‘n Wild but want to be able to experience it before it’s gone forever then don’t forget to purchase one of our Universal 3 Park Bonus tickets.
