Awesome!

Love love love this place! Had so much fun with all the slides, and the lazy river is soooo great for relaxing and seeing the shark tank from the neighbouring aquarium.

Well planned attractions. Attractions have various levels of adrenaline requirements. There is something for every one from small children to high speed rides for adrenaline junkies.

This place is simply poorly managed with some possible design flaws leading to a genrally bad attraction. Good management could make a difference though. I would recommend this place if you have children and during the daytime only.

This is a great place to bring the whole family with great food available, a bar, the highest water slide in Africa, and the Aquarium next to it it's an excellent place to spend a hot Durban summer's day.

best place to take the kids in durban my children could have just moved in if they were allowed to. we struggled to get the kids out of the water which was so warm by the way and great weather we were lucky.

My first time back at Wet n Wild after at least 5 years and I was happy to find all the old favourites still in place, as well as some exciting additions.. Wasn't brave enough to try the highest slide this time but all the other slides provided more than enough fun for a few hours

A lovely day and good fun on the slides was had by all. We still enjoyed the dolphin and seal shows even though we have seen better on previous visits. The shows seem more educational rather than good entertainment. All in all, still very enjoyable.

Good fun and warm enough in late August to enjoy it. We went after visiting the aquarium (got a combination ticket) - definitely better to do that way round I'd say.
