Wet-N-Wild Waterworld’s Newest Attraction Set to Open Thursday

Wet N Wild Waterworld has completed construction, testing, and inspection of Jaguar Falls, the largest attraction in the family-owned waterpark’s 38-year history, and it is now ready to ride.

“This project represents a huge investment in our guests and our community! We have been working non-stop on this ride since the winter, and we are thrilled to finally open it to our guests,” says Chandra Edwards Cottingham, one of the family owners of the water park.

Edwards Cottingham adds, “The suspense has been building since we announced the new ride, and we have revealed facts and details of Jaguar Falls to our customers week by week through our very popular Facebook contests. They are all now Jaguar Falls experts, and we can’t wait for them to try it out!”

The Jaguar Falls complex has a footprint of over 42,750 square feet and includes a six-story tower with room to add more rides in the future.

After climbing the ninety-five steps to the tower, guests will enter the raft with family and friends and experience thousands of gallons of water per minute twisting and turning them down the slide at speeds up to 25 feet per second!

The ride ends with an exhilarating splashdown into a refreshing catch pool.

The family-friendly Jaguar Falls, located between the Amazon and Alien Vortex, crosses over the park’s main entry drive, providing an eye-catching yellow, black and green promise of fun.

According to park officials, “Two to four people (500 lbs max, 300 lbs max per person) can ride together in a raft at the same time! And there won’t be any worries about dragging those rafts all the way to the top of the ride tower –a speedy raft conveyor will whisk the rafts from the pool to the entry tub in record time.”

Adding to the adventure, and keeping with the jungle theme, after splashing down into the catch pool, park guests will make their way back to the Jaguar Falls complex via a 58.8-foot rope suspension bridge swaying high above the ground.

Construction on the project involved thousands of work hours from architects, contractors, and other skilled workers and includes hundreds of tons of concrete, steel and fiberglass, as well as multiple slide components shipped from different parts of the world.

This new addition has allowed the park to provide temporary work for dozens of people and several new seasonal job openings on top of the 300 positions it fills every summer from April to September.
