Wet? Check. Wild? Check.

By July 3, 2012

Follow me on:

It's a matter of some dispute, but the place that is generally acknowledged to be the world's first water park is Wet 'n Wild Orlando. (Among the sticking points, River Country at Disney World actually opened a few months earlier. But those in the know consider Wet 'n Wild the prototype and its founder, George Millay, the father of the water park industry.) 35 years after it opened, it still remains one of the biggest, best, and most popular parks. See why in my overview of Wet 'n Wild Orlando.
