Water parks abound in the desert, but Wet 'n' Wild offers something for every member of the family. With adult slides, rides for teens, as well as kiddie pools, for the diverse family, there's an option for everyone.
First Things First: Gear Up for Hot Summer Days
Water shoes are advisable for hotter days. Flip flops are another option, but these may fall off on some of the more wild rides. With most water parks, there are bound to be long lines on some days, and of course, some little whipper-snapper who cuts the line, but with such a spectacular location, it's easy to let this go.
