Wet ‘n’ Wild Water Park

Wet ’n’ Wild lays claim to being the largest theme park in Arizona. It has everything you'd expect in a water park: waterslides, waterslides for giant inner tubes that take the whole family at once, and ... did we say waterslides? There are sections specifically for younger kids, too. Open seasonally.
