Wet n' Wild Emerald Pointe

Things are definitely heating up, and it’s not even officially summer until later this month! But don’t sweat it. You can cool off at Wet n’ Wild Emerald Pointe all season long!

What’s new at Wet ‘n Wild Emerald Pointe

Take the plunge in a dramatic way at Wet n’ Wild Emerald Pointe thanks to the all-new dual drop thriller, Bombs Away!

This double-dare doozie starts with riders brave enough to step inside one of two enclosed capsules. Then the floor drops—and so do you!

Riders will fly straight down a six-story drop reaching speeds up to 26 feet per second. Or they will twist and loop their way down a closed tube that’s 266-feet-long. Either way, they are in for the ride of the summer!

Did you know this is the first new attraction to debut at Wet ‘n Wild since the Riptide Racer in 2015?
