We arrived as soon as they opened at 10 am on labor day and people were just beginning to show up.The first 2 hours were pretty pleasant with short lines to the various slides which range from mild to crazy.My 6 year old son enjoyed them all but their were a couple of slides like the screamer and the amazon...

Every year we get to go to Wet n Wild Anthony area for a company picnic. On summer weekends this place is mayhem - including waiting lines to go into the "wave pool"... Which is the attraction with the largest capacity. Flooring is uneven throughout the place, so I do recommend those swimming shoes for all family members to walk... More

Because of my husband's job, we were able to get half price tickets to Wet 'n Wild, or else after reading these reviews, I probably wouldn't have gone. We went on a Tuesday afternoon, which was nice and quiet. There weren't very long rides for any of the attractions, and there were lots of tables to plop our stuff down.... More

Was an OK day the park is very worn and was pretty mad you have to pay $2 for parking on a dirt lot? Felt weird that alcohol was allowed especially because there are young children and families around seemed trashy watching people come in with an 18 pack while I was with my 2 year old, the park had...

I'm literally sitting in the park now. It's old and worn. The water level on many of the rides is too low, so it makes it difficult not to get stuck. Not many rules, which is good because they don't enforce them anyway. Lots of families barbecuing which is fine. I love that we could bring in food and beverages.... More

There aren't any waterparks whatsoever around or in El Paso so this is definitely a decent place to visit on a hot summer day. It may not be the best waterpark but it's nice.

Unfortunately I bought tickets for this place before reading reviews....the negative reviews are spot on! First we get charged for parking on a non paved parking lot. (Can the income pay for pavement upgrades?) THEN, we get charged to rent tubes to ride slides?? I can understand a deposit but not $5/person! The whole place needs a reno to include... More

We thought going to the waterpark would be a great family activity, and we were wrong. This place is more like a cookout area with some water placed around it. There are not many pools or slides available for children or anyone to use. Tubes must be rented, which I think is ridiculous for the $20+ ticket price AND the... More

I find it comical that Wet N Wild has responses to almost all the negative comments here. Your excuses do not work. You can also add me to the list of negative experiences at Wet N Wild. Many of us are locals and we KNOW how long you have been in existence. However, clean it up! The pools DO smell,... More
