Theme park project for western Sydney WET N WILD

Theme park project for western Sydney

Construction of the $115 million Wet‘n’Wild Sydney theme park has been launched by NSW Premier Barry O’Farrell on a 25-hectare site at Prospect. The start of work follows the department’s approval of a Complying Development Code, which will complement last year’s major project approval for the site by allowing future development of rides and attractions to be carried out without a separate development application.

3.1 Vision
Prospect Aquatic Investments vision is to create an exceptional, world-class water theme park, entertainment and recreational destination to be known as Wet ’n’ Wild Sydney. Wet ‘n’ Wild Sydney is expected to become one of the world’s top 10 water theme parks by attendance and will have a spectacular array of the world’s most state of the art water theme park rides and attractions providing the residents of western Sydney with a beach like destination they can call their own, and enhancing the lifestyle of the community in Greater Western Sydney.

Wet’n’Wild Sydney will deliver to the residents a water theme park that is set to make its mark as an iconic piece of social infrastructure across the Sydney landscape. It will provide the youth of Sydney with a single venue for all their fun and entertainment in a secure environment. For the young, it will become a ‘cool’ place to be seen, providing all the action and entertainment, aquatic and otherwise, they could imagine - plus more - and for parents it will become an exciting, entertaining environment where they can relax and unwind in the peace of mind of a safe environment for the whole family. 

Tourists from overseas and around Australia alike will make Wet ‘n’ Wild Sydney a “must do” part of their holiday. The business and corporate market will also be accommodated with an unrivalled environment for staff parties, picnic days and other special event functions.

Wet’n’Wild Sydney will provide quality amenities set amongst striking architecture, landscaping and foliage. Water parks are about good, healthy, exhilarating outdoor fun and entertainment for the young and old alike. There will be specialised areas for groups including families, children and teenagers along with corporate function facilities, hospitality, food & beverage and retail offerings. 

The water park is to offer unique full day experiences for friends and families to both locals and tourists, and will promote repeat visitation from locals. Complementing the core water theme park activities will be a strong events calendar reinforcing the destination status of the park and maintain its position as a world-class water theme park.

Water Theme Park Rides and Attractions
A preliminary concept plan for Wet’n’Wild Sydney has been prepared and will be further developed and finalised over the coming months. The final list of rides and attractions are currently being finalised and can be separated into three broad categories or themes for Children, Families, and Teenagers.
Children will be well catered for with a wide variety of attractions that have proven to be popular at Wet’n’Wild Waterworld on the Gold Coast and other water theme parks around the world. The children’s area will be located within a themed area that will typically include:
  • 􏰁  Toddlers Pool Area – the toddler’s pool area will include a wide variety of water play attractions designed specifically for ages 1-9 years. Attractions may include soft-play animal structures, mushroom fountains, spray structures and large themed interactive soft play features such as Pirate Ships, Submarines and the like.

  • 􏰁  Interactive Waterplay Zone – the interactive waterplay area will be located within close proximity to the toddlers pool area and may include a themed tower structure with interactive water wheels, water cannons, sprays, geysers and other water attractions.
    Water theme parks offer all the natural attractions of the beach and Wet’n’Wild Sydney is aimed to become the beach for the families of Greater Western Sydney, bringing the pleasures and lifestyle of Sydney’s coastline to the people of western Sydney.
    A large number of rides and attractions capable of entertaining the entire family will be provided for and include:
  • 􏰁  Wave Pool – will form the signature attraction of the park;

  • 􏰁  The wave pool may also cater for “dive in” movies. Children, teenagers and adults will be able to float around or laze adjacent to the wave pool whilst watching movies on a big screen above the wave pool;

  • 􏰁  Lazy and Action Rivers - a lazy river and action river may weave throughout the water theme park and act as water transport around the water theme park. This attraction has multiple “rides within a ride” which may include various themedsectionsincludingrapids,waves,cavesanddiversions. Itisriddenon a tube and can cater for the entire family; and

  • 􏰁  A combination of family and thrill style water slides. Teenagers
    A number of rides listed within the “family entertainment” category above cater to the teenage market as teenagers can use many of the attractions with their friends. In addition, teenagers will be especially attracted to the ‘jaw dropping’ and ‘adrenalin pumping’ water slide rides and attractions.
