Singaporeans can now fight waves, battle fierce waters, manoeuvre daredevil moves and experience gravity-defying stunts at a brand new Water Theme Park.

Wild Wild Wet opened its doors at Downtown East in Pasir Ris on 5 Jun 2004. Singapore's largest water theme park gives visitors access to some of the most exciting water park rides ever seen!

Five exciting anchor rides have been introduced with the opening of Wild Wild Wet, which was built at an estimated cost of $20 million, and which extends over a two-hectare area.

The rides are:

1. The Sidewinder

The first of its kind in Singapore, The Sidewinder has a broad valley-like curve which will appeal to extreme sport enthusiasts.  Its challenging and gravity-defying ride will send riders up and down and side to side in a huge float which can take up to 2 people at one time.

2. Professor's Playground

Yet another ride making its debut in Singapore is the Professor’s Playground.  This three-storied high structure has five different slides visitors can slide off from, promising to give everyone a refreshing good time.  With the option to waddle and soak in the Fun Pool or cool off under cascading water from a giant bucket which can dispense up to 6000 litres of water, this ride is bound to be a favourite!

3. Ular-Lah and The Waterworks

Shaped like a giant human eating snake, Ular-lah is the first in South East Asia.  The 10-metre high ride can accommodate up to six persons per raft, allowing them to course through the waters as they collide head on with exciting turns, bumps and dips much like a real life white-water rafting experience!  Complete with full 360-degree spins and high-banked corners, this is one intense ride visitors will not want to miss.

Also part of the same physical structure is the Waterworks, which are two separate rides in spiral-like tube slides.  The ride in each tube is of a different intensity, thanks to the varying radii of its curves.  Visitors can either choose to enter the completely covered tube for a greater sense of adventure, or the one which is exposed on top to catch a glimpse of the spectacular water theme park while they continue through the adrenaline pumping ride.

4. Tsunami

As the name suggests, experience the thrill of waves like those in the open seas.  Varying strengths of waves are simulated, suitable for all in the family to enjoy the coolness of the water while basking in the tropical heat.

5. Shiok River

The less adventurous water baby can also bask in the warmth of the sun on a float or revitalise their spirits with a cool dip in this 350 metre long and 1 metre-deep winding pool, which will traverse the perimeter of Ular-Lah, the Waterworks, Professor’s Playground and Yippee.  Visitors will relish just drifting along, forgetting the worries of real world.
