Water park fun at Wet ‘n’ Wild
We Phoenicians love our backyard pools, but sometimes we just need something a little more adventurous. Head out to Wet ‘n’ Wild and take a spin on Tornado, race your pals on the Cactus Cooler, and duel head-to-head on the one-of-a-kind, 830-foot-long Maximum Velocity. Check Wet ‘n’ Wild’s event calendar throughout the summer for dive-in movie nights, fireworks shows and more.
