Here's a great place to go on a hot day. What could be more fun than a water park in the beautiful tropical setting of Hawaii ? The Wet-n-Wild Hawaii water park is just the right size. Big enough to have fun for a full day and small enough to be able to easily experience all of the rides. There are attractions geared toward very young children, older children, teens, and adults. For the young ones, there is the Keiki Cove: small slides, shallow water, and splashy fountains. For older kids, there is Water World: bigger slides, a little deeper water, and rope/log challenges. For everyone else there is the Island Racer, Raging River, Tornado, Shaka, an assortment of larger slides, Da Flowrider and more. There is even an adults-only section with a hot tub, small pool, lounge chairs, and bar. The Wave Pool and the Kapolei Kooler (lazy river ride) is fun for everyone too. Check out their website for a complete listing of attractions.
In addition to the water rides, you'll find a food court restaurant, souvenir shop, lockers, changing/shower area, first aid station, games, and 18-hole miniature golf.
The water park is open year round. Hours of operation vary depending on the time of year and day of week. During peak times, it is open 10:30AM - 5:00PM. It can close as early as 3:30 PM during non-peak times. For current hours, call 808-674-9283.
