Wet ‘n Wild Orlando celebrated the grand opening of its newest attraction today, June 2, 2012. Blastaway Beach is a family-friendly, sandcastle-themed water playground. It’s touted as the largest water playground of its kind in Florida and Wet ‘n Wild’s first new attraction in over four years.
Built around a sandcastle rising 60-feet high, Blastaway Beach spans an acre and features 15 slides and expands across two pools with 160 soakers, jets, waterfalls and water cannons. Designed especially for families, the new area has a single entrance and exit, creating a secluded environment that is safe and fun for all ages. There’s also no height limit, so adults can enjoy all the slides with their kids.
To mark the occasion, Wet ‘n Wild asked local elementary school students to submit artistic representations of Blastaway Beach. Fifty winners were selected and invited to bring their families to enjoy the new area. Wet ‘n Wild also gave the first 35 families to enter the park free access to Wet ‘n Wild’s All-U-Can-Eat Barbeque for the day.
