Oxenford's Wet 'n' Wild Water World boasts magnificent, adrenelaine-pumping water slides; a wave pool with 3-foot-high surf; tandem, entwined-tube and family-friendly slides; and the new Surfrider that simulates the sensation of surfing the world's biggest waves, plummeting you 30 meters (over 100 feet) while you spin on a giant board. In the Extreme H20 zone, you can plunge down pitch-black spirals of water in the Black Hole, hang on through the churning Tornado, race
your friends on the Mach 5, or survive the scary Kamikaze: a giant, U-shaped, friction-free slide with a near-vertical 11-meter (36-foot) drop. Enough aquatic thrills? Take it easy on Calypso Beach, a "tropical island" fringed with white-sand beaches, or relax in the rolling surf of the 3-million-liter Giant Wave Pool. Meanwhile, kids will love Buccaneer Bay: a pirate-themed aquatic playground with multiple levels. Select pools and slides are heated May through September, when days are often still sunny and warm. The park is ½ km (¼ mi) down the Pacific Highway from Warner Bros. Movie World.
