Owner description: Wet ‘n’ Wild Hawaii is Hawaii’s biggest ‘n’ best water park and #1 family attraction. Located in Oahu’s “Second City” of Kapolei, the park features more than 25 exhilarating attractions for families and thrill seekers alike. Adrenaline addicts can enjoy slides like Shaka –plunging guests down a 36 foot drop almost vertically; or Tornado, which catapults guests through a swirling 45-foot funnel. The park also features tamer attractions like Water World Playground, an interactive children’s area and Hawaiian Waters, a 400,000-gallon wave pool.

“What a scam!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2013

I really made me mad that I could not bring in any of my own food and was forced to buy crappie fried food that was REALLY expensive. Would of liked it if all the rides were open at the same time too.

“KIds had a blast!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

We just went here and the kids had an absolute blast, just a note bring your own towels. We ended up buying them for $12.00 each, that is not bad at all, but just did not think to bring our own.

“Waiting, waiting and waiting”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

We called in advance to make sure Saturday is not the "busy" day and when we have been assured its not we did go there. Obviously it was a mistake because even park lot was half way full, half of the slides has been closed all the time and they were switching between two nearby slides all the time so the lines was looong and waiting time was unacceptable. I overheard a couple of people arguing its because of water quality or technical issues - I think the truth is they are saving money and have not enough employes.
The food is just unhealthy as expected and over priced as well. It was very hot and sunny day but they have no water mist anywhere, not even enough shade. Old not very clean bathrooms with a couple of doors you re not able to lock and mini golf with a lot of debris on. We paid for gold pass (mini golf included) because we though we will come back during our visit a couple of times but this experience was good enough to not return to this park anymore.
Be prepare to pay for storage box top of the ticket $12 for small, $17 for 12x12x17 (bigger) box. If you ever visit water parks in Florida or even Wisconsin you will be totally disappointed.

“Fun, small, expensive”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013 via mobile

We have been to many waterparks and amusement parks so this one is small compared to others, but we'll take what we can get! It's expensive and you have to pay for parking. Lockers are expensive, and the food is very expensive. You can't bring food or drinks into the park, but you can leave a cooler in you car and eat lunch at your car if you want to save a little money. The rides are fun and the lines weren't too bad. They do rotate which rides are open every 30 minutes but we just rode the ones that were open and eventually you will get to ride them all. The staff (ticket people, locker people, lifeguards, etc) all looked pretty unhappy and some were rude. Overall we had fun, though.

“For young kids”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

Nothing like the one in Australia. Only about 6 rides and none really thrilling. I think this park is more for young kids. Only good thing was no lines so we had fun just bored of it very quickly. Better things to do hawaii
