Oxenford's Wet 'n' Wild Water World boasts magnificent, adrenaline-pumping water slides; a wave pool with a 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. 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-shape, friction-free slide with a near-vertical 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. Kids love Buccaneer Bay, a pirate-themed aquatic playground with multiple levels, and the new Wet 'n' Wild Junior area, featuring another eight kid-friendly slides, including mini versions of the park's most popular thrill rides. Select pools and slides are heated May through September, when days are often still sunny and warm. The park is ½ km (¼ mile) down the Pacific Highway from Warner Bros. Movie World.
