Wet 'n' Wild Phoenix To Open Expanded Children's Area Called Wet 'n' Wild Jr.

Phoenix, AZWet 'n' Wild Phoenix announced the groundbreaking of their all-new children's area that is scheduled to open Memorial Day weekend. This expanded area called "Wet 'n' Wild Jr." will feature kid-friendly versions of some of the waterpark's most popular attractions.

Three new slides – Tiny Typhoon, Screamin' Streamers and Banzai Racers – and a splash zone with water hoops and squirt guns will be added to create an all-new area of the waterpark that is designed especially for children and families.

Tiny Typhoon will send kids spinning through a miniature funnel, Screamin' Streamers will take them on a fun and leisurely downhill river ride and Banzai Racers will give kids a chance to compete against their friends in a side-by-side race.

No longer will the park's youngest visitors be spectators while their older siblings have all the fun. Wet 'n' Wild Jr. will offer experiences similar to those found on the park's larger attractions, but in scaled down, kid friendly sizes.

"Wet 'n' Wild Jr. provides a place for children to experience the adventure of our world-class slides in custom- designed miniature versions," said Scott Cooper, general manager of Wet 'n' Wild Phoenix. "With three new slides, a variety of other kids-only attractions and plenty of shaded seating for the parents, Wet 'n' Wild Phoenix is the first waterpark in Arizona to create an environment the entire family can enjoy."

The park says this multi-million dollar expansion will be the largest since the park's opening in July 2009.

Wet 'n' Wild Phoenix is open for spring break March 17 – March 25, then select weekends in April and May. The park's summer operations start Memorial Day weekend and continue through September 9.
