Wet 'n Wild opens new water attraction

Wet 'n Wild Orlando held a grand opening Monday of its newest attraction, Blastaway Beach. The sandcastle-themed water playground is expected to be the largest water playground of its kind in Florida and Wet 'n Wild's first new attraction in more than four years. Built around a sandcastle rising 60-feet high, Blastaway Beach spans an acre and features 15 slides and expands across two pools with 160 soakers, jets, waterfalls and water cannons. Designed especially for families, the new area has a single entrance and exit, creating a secluded environment that parents of toddlers appreciate. See for ticket options. Right now the site is offering a $34 Florida resident deal, a $15 savings on a single-day ticket. — Sharon Kennedy Wynne
