Wet ‘n’ Wild Hawaii Coming Soon

(Updates: 6/20/09 – Rode the Island Racer at Wet-n-Wild Hawaii                      6/27/09 – Rode the Raging River at Wet-n-Wild Hawaii)

Hawaiian Waters Adventure Park will become Wet ‘n’ Wild Hawaii this summer.  The sale of the Kapolei water park to CNL Lifestyle Properties was announced last week.  According to the article in the Honolulu Advertiser, the park will continue to be operated by the current owners, Village Roadshow.

This is great news for those of us who love to spend an afternoon at the water park.  The current owners added the new Tornado ride and are in the process of replacing the Volcano Express and Cliff Hanger with two new rides.  For those of you who are fans of the Volcano Express, fear not, your favorite ride will only get better.  They are adding a winding tube section to the top of the slide and are renaming it  “Island Racers”.

Here are  the tunnels being added to the top of the old Volcano Express

For those of you who are fans of the Cliff Hanger, oh wait, there are no fans of the Cliff Hanger.  I’ve been to the water park at least 20 times and have seldom seen anyone actually riding the Cliff Hanger.   Plans call for a new whitewater raft ride (the Raging River) in its place.

The water park also opened a putt-putt mini golf course a while back that requires an additional fee to play.   I can’t imagine that the owners are happy with the results of this million dollar upgrade.  I seldom see people playing the course.  Who wants to play putt-putt at a water park?   I predict this attraction will be replaced in a few years.
