Wet ‘n Wild Orlando to close permanently as Universal Orlando makes way for Volcano Bay water park

in Theme Parks, Universal Orlando

Nearly 40 years after it opened, Wet ‘n Wild Orlando will be officially closing permanently on on December 31, 2016.

The announcement came on the official Universal Orlando Blog and Wet ‘n Wild’s Facebook page.

Wet ‘n Wild Orlando first opened in 1977, purchased years later by Universal Studios. Now Universal is building their own new water park, Volcano Bay, leaving no reason to keep Wet ‘n Wild Orlando around any longer.
