Sydney’s $130 million Wet’n’Wild water playground showcases some of the tallest and fastest rides and slides in the world.

Developed by Village Roadshow on a 25 hectare site in Prospect, Wet‘n’Wild is the largest water theme park in the southern hemisphere and has more than 40 slides and attractions. Since its opening, it has out-performed similar parks on the Gold Coast, Hawaii and Las Vegas.

The project features the world’s largest man-made beach. Among the challenges overcome by the design team were issues of durability, maintenance and safety, as well as efficient use of energy. And, with so many pools a key design criteria was efficient use of water for the large number of pools.

We developed an existing master plan by WTI in the USA. We also designed and documented all the buildings, including the iconic entry, restaurant facilities, amenities and administration.

The finished product caters for a range of demographics, from toddlers all the way to grandparents, and the team took this into consideration during the masterplanning process.
