Disclosure: I received tickets to Wet’N Wild Emerald Pointe to faciliate my review. As always, all opinions are my own. See full disclosure policy here.
Last week I told you we were on our way to Wet’N Wild Emerald Pointe. Well, we made it, and the day turned out perfectly. We couldn’t have asked for better weather, and we had a blast!
My older teenage son had to work, so my younger one took his friend along, but that was the only hiccup in our plans. The two boys had a great time. I made them stick with us for a little while so I could take their photo, but then just had them check in every hour or so. I didn’t realize that Wet’N Wild announces the time hourly so that you can meet up with your friends or relatives–or, in our case, your kids will know to check in. This is just one of those little things a company can do that makes a difference.
Another thing I appreciated was the abundance of life jackets all over the park. It’s included in the admission price—you just grab what you need in kid’s or adult sizes. There were also lifeguards absolutely everywhere, and it was clear that they were very focused on their jobs. It made me feel confident about letting my son and his friend go on off on their own. Although they are young teens, I’m an overprotective mom.
So, let me take you on a tour of Wet’N Wild Emerald Pointe. Keep in mind, this certainly doesn’t begin to cover the whole park! You’ve got to experience it for yourself, and you still have time to make the trip. You also get $5 off per ticket with code 14006 when you buy online here. If you live in the Carolinas, check out the season ticket prices too. If you visit the park a few times, they will you save you money!
|This was one of the first rides the boys went on. Of course the lifeguard is on duty!|
|You can find life jackets everywhere at Wet’N Wild.|
|I like that there was a regular pool to swim in. Notice the lifeguard (in the red shorts next to the lamp post).|
|The sunken ship at Wet’N Wild is popular!|
|There are SO many places for the little ones to play! This is just one. The kids seemed to be having a great time as the “cyclone” moved them in circles!|
|I loved this area for younger children. There were lots of shady spots for the parents.|
|If you want to take a break from the water, you can play a little volleyball!|
|There are plenty of shaded places to sit and relax when you want a break, including this one near where we ate. There are pizza, burgers, and more.|
|Finally, this was the view from my lounge chair at Wet’N Wild Emerald Pointe. I sat at the wave pool, and got in the water to cool off whenever it got too warm.|
I can highly recommend Wet’N Wild Emerald Pointe if you’re in or near the Carolinas. This park is fun for kids of all ages, and the adults will love it too!
