Recently, my family, a friend, and I got the great opportunity to go to Wet’n Wild Emerald Pointe and enjoy all the watery fun they had to offer! Thankfully we picked a wonderful day to go. The park was extremely crowded, the weather was nice and hot, and there was a slight breeze. It was a little cloudy, but it never rained and made for a perfect day.

Family Fun At Wet ‘N Wild Emerald Pointe

The first thing my friend and I did was go to Thunder Bay. I have been to Emerald Pointe a few times before, but she hadn’t. So, a wave pool was a whole new experience for her. She loved it! In fact, she said it was her favorite feature of the park. She loved swimming around into the deepest parts, and then jumping the waves at last minute. We had a blast. Meanwhile, my parents enjoyed loafing sitting on the comfy lounge chairs under big umbrellas to avoid sunburn.

Next, I took her down what is personally my favorite slide: Dr. Von Dark’s Tunnel of Terror. I love the slide because it is completely dark and it is impossible to tell what direction you will be going next. Although I am extremely claustrophobic and usually can’t stand to be in an enclosed tube slide, I can stand this one because it is big and spacious so I don’t feel too scared. Just scared enough. 😉

Then, we decided to enjoy a few laps in the Lazy River. We got in our tubes and chilled out as we slowly drifted along the water. This is always one of my favorite features of the park because it gives you a few moments to relax, catch your breath, and soak up the sun.

A little bit after that, my parents decided they wanted a go at the Thunder Bay. Meanwhile, my friend and I decided to lay on the lounge chairs and soak up some sun for a bit. Sadly, I got too relaxed and fell asleep. A few hours later, I was feeling the burn. 😉

Some great things about Wet ‘n Wild Emerald Pointe that you might not know about are:

– You can find life jackets in every size all around the park. These are great for young children, but also for anyone who doesn’t feel too confident in their swimming abilities.

– If you forget your sunscreen or tanning oil, you can find some in the park at the gift shop! That’s what I should have done.

– The park sells souvenir cups that allow you to get refills all season long. Also, if you buy more than one, you get a discount.

– There are life guards stationed at every attraction, including the slides.

– If your family gets hungry, you can find anything from funnel cakes to pizza for sell in the park. They also have cabanas and picnic areas.

– Lastly, there are a multitude of pools of every depth found around the park.

Overall, we had a wonderful time and can’t wait to go back again as soon as possible! My friend also enjoyed her first experience at Wet’n Wild Emerald Pointe and hopes to return again soon.

  1. I love water slides.. not a huge fan of the dark ones, but i would garner up the strength and go for it..

    • Dawn McAlexander says

      It’s a little scary for me, but my family loves it! I am more of the relax by the pool type. It really is a water park for everyone.

  2. All kids love water parks, I would love to bring my daughter to one.

  3. Sounds like you had fun. The last time intent to wet n wild in was probably 8/9. Was a blast though, the lazy river and slides are my favorite.

  4. This looks like a really great water park. That pirate ship is sweet!

  5. Wow! That Dr. Von Dark’s Tunnel of Terror looks scary but my hubby and my daughter would love it. LOL

  6. I haven’t been to a water park in forever! I sure do like those lazy rivers though. It’s so relaxing!

  7. Those slides are pretty scary! They are too high and I’m kinds afraid of heights! I think children would enjoy their time there most.

    • Dawn McAlexander says

      I don’t ride the rides or get on the slides either but I always have a great time. They have nice beach chairs – the ones that lay back – and I always take a good book to read. It’s so relaxing. 🙂

  8. So much fun!!! I think today was the last of our warm weather, turning cool-too cool for pools or waterparks.

  9. Looks like a really fun water park! I hate when they’re crowded though because of the lines. It sucks to get dry while waiting and then getting wet all over again!

  10. Amanda Young says

    I looooooove water parks! Looks like a fun place for some sun and water play!

  11. Oh man, this looks like so much fun! I haven’t been to a waterpark in years!

  12. My family and I are overdue for a waterpark trip. They’re so much fun!

  13. Melissa Smith says

    This place looks like a blast! Although I don’t think I would have the guts to go down Dr. Von Dark’s Tunnel of Terror. The Lazy River is much more my style. 😉

  14. Rebecca Swenor says

    I have never been to any water park yet and this would be the one I would go to for my first time. The slide looks so scary but I think I would have to try it. Thanks for sharing.

    • Dawn McAlexander says

      You definitely must try out a water park and should make it a priority for next summer if you can. They are so much fun.

  15. What a fun waterpark for the whole family. This is one of the things we will miss about summer is getting to go play in the water at a water park. We will have to visit this one next year.

  16. Pretty sure anyone would have a great time there. That place looks like fun!

  17. Totally awesome. With the weather still being warm I wonder if they’re still open. I know don’t they usually close right after or before labor day?????

    • Dawn McAlexander says

      I think they are actually closed for the season now, but are still offering season passes for next year.

  18. Ann Bacciaglia says

    I love water parks but would likely stay away from that slide you love!! Sliding in the dark…no thank you LOL. I do love the wave pool and lazy river at any water park. Maybe one day I’ll make it to this one. 🙂

  19. Next time you go there come and get me that places looks like so much fun and I need to get away.

  20. Wet n Wild brings up my so many childhood memories. 🙂 It looks like you had a blast and like someone else mentioned here in the comments…I also am a huge of the Lazy River. So much fun! 🙂

  21. Thats such an amazing place to enjoy with the whole family… I loved it
