Not impressed....$70 entry and no allowance to bring in your own food. Just over priced and a whole lot of waiting and getting cold....even on mild day..... Waiting to get in, waiting for coffee, food, rides etc etc.....And to rub salt into the wound after spending close to $700 they demand parking fees! Thieves. We averaged something like $11 a ride. Just got fed up with standing in lines and getting cold.

We were given season passes for Christmas and they expire in May (tip off 1). Cabana's (shelters) extremely expensive $89 and $249 and offer no security (for your valuables) and have nothing in them that justify such ridiculously high prices. Food really average and service at food counters not that good. Customer service needs a little improvement in small areas but majority of staff friendly indeed. All the rides were Greg and the music excellent. Not being allowed to take your own food is stupid as their food is not all that great and also overpriced. Entry fee way to steep but once inside and a few rides had the sting of paying so much for so little is put in the back of your mind. Recommend only if you have no other choice and want to blow loads of money

We thought we planned a day well. Organised the tickets online and arrive early. It was weekday so it was not busy at all. When we arrived, the staff asked us to queue for group entrance. The people who bought a tickets there can go straight away from entrance, but we are not. In fact, people organised a tickets online need to queue and pay for car parking ($9 as of Feb 2014), and locker too. What is the point to buy online??

After about 30 mins of waiting, we finally came to casher and show the staff our ticket on our mobile phone. She said "you need to print out'. Hello? It's 2014 and asking the customer to print out the ticket?? Then she asked me to send the paid ticket to their email so she can print out. We sent and wait for another 20mins to print out our tickets. Eventually she said that their printer is broken...I nearly lost it. The manager is watching the system is working or not. Obviously not working at all.

The large locker is not that large. 4 people and we need 2 large locker. The attraction was great. Kids had a lovely time and I can not complain about the attraction. The staff who is working at the attraction is helpful.

No BYO to the park but many Asian customer (especially Chinese) brought their own food. Just a sandwich cost $9. The food is absolutely expensive.

The shower area, we wanted to use Family changing room and shower. There were 4 of them and 2 of them were broken. So eventually my daughter and I went to lady's shower and there were only 3 or 4 of them in entire park to share.

It's shame, such a great attraction, but the management, facility and food are not so good.

My girlfriend and myself visited Wet n Wild Sydney yesterday and honestly we had an overall fantastic time. A majority of people are complaining about crowds and long queue times, theme parks can sometimes be unpredictable but being patient and using your brain to do some research before you go can increase your chances to avoid crowds. For a park in it's early stages it's great day/night out with plenty of slides to choose from, i wouldn't go as far to say it's better than wet n wild queensland but give the place time and it might be on par with it sooner or later. I'll be definitely going back next year to see what improvements have been made.

Anyhow it's great place for all ages and just remember that people are more likely to leave a negative comment than a positive one. Thanks Wet N Wild Sydney for awesome time!!!!

The attractions themselves were a lot of fun - obviously the lines were endless and the waits long, but otherwise enjoyed each one. Food can be a bit pricey - and you are not allowed to take your own food inside with you. Getting a season pass is worth it considering the price of a one day pass!
