Summer is just not complete without a visit to Wet ‘N Wild Emerald Point at least once. You will feel like you are on a vacation miles away with no cares in the world. There is enough excitement to last all day long here! And the best part – it’s located here in the Triad!
Ranked one of the Top Ten Water Parks in America…Wet ‘N Wild Emerald Point is for all ages from tots to seniors featuring all thrill levels from MILD to WILD! Guests will enjoy over 36 rides & attractions, beautifully shaded areas, private cabana’s for rental, comfortable lounge chairs, lockers, cooler & basket storage, a relaxing redesigned group picnic area, Club Bermuda Group & Activity Island, along with a wide variety of delicious foods, beverages (from snacks to catered meals), games and lots more including exciting entertainment shows!
Upon arrival, it is suggested that you rent a locker. This way, you can bring a camera, money, etc but not have to worry about keeping up with those items the entire time we are in the park. If you have tiny ones who will spend most of their time in the Happy Harbor area, you may feel comfortable just leaving your belongings along the side of the pool on one of the many lounge chairs available, but remember that the park is not responsible for any lost or stolen items, so leave them at your own risk! Once you have been to the park a few times, you may be able to visit by just bringing yourself and a towel!
Outside food and drinks are not permitted in the park, but unopened water bottles are an exception. There are plenty of cafes and eateries in the park, so it’s just as easy to plan on eating while you are there. If you want to bring a cooler or other picnic items, you are able to leave the park to eat and get a wristband to return. Picnic tables outside of the park are very limited.
A few of the rides require life jackets for children under 48 inches, and they do have those available for you to use. Wet ‘N Wild also welcomes guests with disabilities. Guests with special needs may contact Guest Services at 336-852-9721 for information regarding accessibility to rides, attractions, shops and restaurants.
There are two areas that are perfect for little ones. Children must be less than 52” tall to play in Happy Harbor and Splash Island, so this makes it a perfect play area for children who may be a little more timid. There are huge shallow swimming pools, as well as a kiddie-sized wave pool, double tube slides, two mini-slides, and other interactive play elements.
Children over 48 inches will have plenty of thrill rides from which to choose. There are also some rides that only require a child to be 40 inches. Your best bet is to check out all of your options on the website here. The large wave pool, Lazee River, and Shipwreck Cove are great spots that the entire family can enjoy.
Daily General Admission tickets are for persons 48 inches and taller. Junior Admission tickets for persons under 48 inches tall. Children ages 2 and under are free. Daily Tickets, Combo Meal Packages & Cabanas may be purchased on line at www.emeraldpointe.com
