Wet 'n' Wild Water World, Oxenford
(3.3/5 based on 1,700+ reviews on the web)
Wet 'n' Wild Water World provides a thrilling place to beat the heat in the Gold Coast. Ride the biggest wave in the world aboard while strapped to a giant surfboard with other park goers, choose from a handful of themed waterslides--including one that runs through total darkness and another that tests the outer limits of gravity--and zipline across the entire venue. Opt for tamer fun by tubing down a lazy river and splashing around in the wave pool. For travelers who use our world travel planner, Oxenford holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Wet 'n' Wild Water World and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • Arrived at 10:15, left at 1700 when the doors closed, 15 min break. Tuesday, no school holidays in QLD, but in NSW. We managed to get 7 rides in in the first 5 hrs, and another 7 in the last hour. Price for a family of five about $340. A few points: 1) The processing of tickets at the entry is insanely laborious and takes for ever. There were not that many people in front of us, but we waited 25min to get in, only to be told that our tickets would have allowed us to bypass the queue (but the guys handling the queues had looked at the tickets and sent us to the queues). 2) As mentioned above, the wait for the rides were unpleasantly long despite it not bring a very busy day. There were however rides that were running at half capacity (one side closed). Reason given was that there was not enough staff to man all the rides. These waits seem to be by design, it's ha d to believe. Those two first points are so frustrating as they not only are as inconvenient as they are unnecessary, but most of all, they show an incredible lack of respect for the park visitors' time. 3) The rides themselves are very good, we had a lot of fun despite the long queues. 4) Staff were friendly and helpful Hint: Unless it's a very hot day, if you can, wear a wet suit. You get wet (no kidding) and then you need to line up for the next ride. There are waiting times you top of the towers too and it's often windy there, hence it can be quite cold. Hint: Don't park your car under one of the trees in the car park. It is tempting, but don't do it, not sure what kind of birds are in those trees, but they sure poo an awful lot.
  • Absolutely spectacular. You can't miss the loop-de-loop or whatever it's called. You stand on a platform, then there is a countdown and it drops out from under you so you're essentially free-falling while you automatically ghasp and seize until you are going so fast that you assume it to be physically impossible to slow down safely. You find yourself at the top of the loop and go down the next bit relatively peacefully. By the time you're at the bottom you've either soiled your swimware or you're jumping back in line to go again. That slide alone makes it worth it but there are plenty more great ones that have so much variety the fun doesn't run out before your energy levels. 10/10 would recommend 2 days if you have the time to spare. If you want to also visit seaworld just skip it because it's garbage. This is where the fun is at. One more thing: I would strongly recommend going during the off-season. We had very few lines and that made for maximum slide time instead of having to wait 40-60 minutes in some cases.
  • Loved this place. Come here often with a little miss 5yo, the new kids section is perfect as they dont get bowles over by the older kids.
  • The rides/slides themselves are fun enough. A lit of them require you to actually drag an inflatable raft up many, many stairs, which honestly feels like a safety hazard. Staff were friendly, but gave us incorrect information. Locker hire was overpriced. Almost all the food places were closed, and those that weren't cost a small fortune. A few experiences in the park required additional purchases despite the high price tag. Don't pay full price.
  • A great way to spend a sunny day. I would suggest pre-making your lunch and bringing it, snacks & drinks with you as the prices once you're inside are very expensive. If you go during winter, be prepared that not all the rides will be running as many of them close for maintenance over this time. Staff could be friendlier. Overall a fun experience!
