Great Wet 'n' Wild Phoenix Details!

The all new Wet 'n' Wild Phoenix was kind enough to send me some great shots of their exciting water park that I'm happy to be able to share with you. First let's start off with this awesome shot:

The $30 million park is set on 35 acres in North Phoenix and is the largest theme park in Arizona, featuring more than 30 exhilarating slides and attractions. The above aerial view lets us check out all the slides, pools, and attractions they have to offer. Click to view a much larger image.

On the left hand side of the park we see the yellow and green dueling water coasters, named Maximum Velocity. The park describes the slides as "dueling H2O Coasters that accelerate into a new area for water slides. The first and only ride of its kind in the world, this unique coaster allows guests to race in tandem tubes down two side-by-side slide tracks. The gravity-defying water coasters blast riders uphill on jetted water and over 830 feet of hair raising drops and breathtaking curves."

Also visible is the newly refurbished Monsoon Bay wave pool, which is also home to the Dive 'n' Movie series where park guests can watch films projected at the pool in the evening - and it's free with park admission!

Wet 'n' Wild Phoenix also features the Tornado, a massive swirling blue and orange slide that four passengers at a time can partake in, as well as the brightly colored Desert Racers which allows families to experience the ultimate racing slide together.

The three blue and green enclosed slides above are the Phoenix Flyers, which "gives guests the opportunity to create a true family fun experience with a choice of three slides with multiple twists, turns and drops down a four-story tower."

Here we see the Raging River family raft slide, featuring over 600 ft. of exciting action as the rafts move over an elevation change of more than 40 ft. This ride also shares the tower with...

Mammoth Falls! "A category five river rapid experience! All the fun of the white water rafting with an unexpected trip over Mammoth Falls." This slide "drops guests 57 feet before the raft goes vertical, shooting up a wall, then falling back to experience weightlessness before arriving safely to the calm waters below."

But the park is not all extreme attractions. They have plenty for the little ones as well, including the park's lazy river, called Cactus Cooler - more than 1,200 ft. of relaxing waterways. The Serpentine Complex features two smaller slides as well as a bowl slide for the family, too. And seen above is the Soak'em Playground, a popular interactive water playground the kids are sure to love.

You can also take notice in the aerial above that the park has been filled with shade covers to help protect visitors from the sun - something I think every water park should have! The park is rounded out with a great selection of food and merchandise locations to please your every desire while visiting.
