Universal is shutting down this beloved water park
There is no shortage of theme parks in the Orlando area, but soon there will be one less — Wet N’ Wild Orlando is shutting down.
The water park is closing after nearly 40 years at the end of 2016, Universal announced today.
Wet N’ Wild was a water park with a variety of slides and rides. It’s closing because Universal is focusing its development on its new Volcano Bay park, a “next-generation water theme park that reimagines what it means to be a water park,” the company says.
Still, for those who wish to mourn, Universal is asking visitors to submit their memories of the park.
