Wet'n'Wild Sydney announced

Wet'n'Wild Sydney will be a water park to be located in Prospect, New South Wales, Australia. The park was announced on 11 September 2010. It will be the fourth Wet'n'Wild water park to be owned by Village Roadshow Theme Parks who own a Wet'n'Wild water park on the Gold Coast, as well as two in the United States: Hawaii and Phoenix.

On Saturday, 11 September, 2010, Wet'n'Wild Sydney was announced. New South Wales Premier, Kristina Keneally, joined Village Roadshow Theme Parks' Chief Executive Officer, Tim Fisher, to announce the project. The proposal is for a 25-hectare (62-acre) water park in Prospect, New South Wales. Set to be one of the top ten water parks in the world, Wet'n'Wild Sydney will play host to a variety of attractions including:
  • Boomerang Bay - a surf wave pool
  • Two lazy river attractions:
    • First featuring a standard river in addition to a river rapids loop
    • Second described as an extreme river
  • WhiteWater West dueling master blaster tube slides
  • Shark Lagoon - teen activity pool
  • WhiteWater West Whizzard six-lane mat ride
  • Two spa locations:
    • A hot spa pool
    • Starfish spa pad
  • WhiteWater West Family Boomerango
  • WhiteWater West Family Python slide
  • WhiteWater West Giant AquaPlay structure
  • Platypus toddlers pool
  • Two beach volleyball courts
  • Pretzel - two WhiteWater West AquaLoops
  • Six inner tube slides with WhiteWater West Super Bowl
  • Single high speed body slide
  • Family raft ride
  • WhiteWater West Abyss Master Blaster

At a cost of AU$80 million, Wet'n'Wild Sydney is set to deliver numerous economic benefits. During the construction and operation of the water park, more than 300 jobs will be created. Due to the expectation that Wet'n'Wild Sydney will be host to almost a million visitors in the first eight month season, the Western Sydney economy will benefit. It is estimated that a contribution of over AU$500 million in turnover within the first ten years of operation as well as over AU$320 million added during construction and the first ten years of operation will be injected into the Western Sydney economy.
