Wet ‘n’ Wild Hawaii

Amusement Park in Kapolei Area

Every temperament from timid to thrill-seeking is served at this 25-acre water park. Float on a lazy river or brave a seven-story waterslide and the football-field-sized wave pool with bodysurfable rides. The hillside Tornado offers superb views across O‘ahu before guests are shot through a series of watery tubes and slides. Some activities cost extra and parking is $8.

Various reserved seating areas and cabanas cost extra too. Bus 40 takes 1¼ hours to get here from the Ala Moana Center in Honolulu; it runs every half-hour between 8:30am and 6:30pm.
