Our Day at Wet & Wild Waterpark

Yesterday, Saturday, we spent a couple hours at the Wet & Wild Waterpark in Glendale, AZ.  My brother and sister in law were able to get some discount tickets from someone they met.  Which is a good thing, because there is no way we could afford $30 a piece for tickets. 
The waterpark features many water slides, a lazy river, a wave pool, and a kiddie spray area.  Of course we spend most all of our time at the kiddie area.  Jayden loves the water so he had fun splashing around.  He was too little to go on any slides, which was fine because I don't think he would want to go anyway. 

We took the boys over to the wave pool area.  The babies were required to wear life vests in this area.  Neither wanted to wear the vest.  But Jayden forgot about the vest once he was playing in the water, but Tanner wanted nothing to do with the vest so they didn't play long.
After some time in the wave pool we went back to the kiddie area.  These are pretty much the only areas that the boys could go.  I guess we could have tried the lazy river, but didn't think they would want to stay in the tube that long.
Both Jayden and Tanner loved the water that squirted up in the air, but were cautious.  Tanner was like a little energizer bunny running around.  He does not stay still ever.  LOL!
There is a really big tiki bowl thing that fills up with water and then falls down on the area.  Both boys would kind of run away from it.  After a while Jayden would watch for it and say, "Here it comes, here it comes." 
I think the boys had a great time.  And it was nice to get out and do something.  Its not always easy to get out when it gets over 100 degrees.  Plus Jayden and Tanner had not been able to spend time playing together in a while.


  1. Hey looks like you’ll had a blast at the Wet & Wild Waterpark in Glendale, AZ. It is very important to keep your kids busy and entertained this summer. Camp is a time to meet new people and have fun while learning coping skills and building self esteem. I found this great camp for kids at Scottsdale, 'AZR SUMMER CAMP’, and it looks quite interesting. It’s got great summer activities, best yoga Zenergy’, fitness training Enerjoy Fitness’, Oxford Learning, climbing, playing climbing related games and many more. I have signed my kid for this camp. Take a look at their website and give your kid too an opportunity to learn something new.

  2. Coming on over from your Tuesday Tag along comment on my blog and started reading...
    Isn't it amazing how expensive most of the summer fun things are? I'll be taking kids to a roller coaster park at the end of summer and I'm working on budgeting it so that I can still have money left over for other fun summer things :) I'm glad that at least one of the kids went ahead with the vest - some kids love them (because it bounces them right back up) and others steer 100% away from them :)
    Thanks for stopping by!


  3. Looks like fun! Gary and I talked about taking the kids, but since Logan is the only one who can swim I worried. But the kiddie area sounds perfect! We'd have to try and find some good coupons too though. $30 a ticket is INSANE! HELLO, who can afford that with this economy?? Crazy...

  4. Looks like you all had fun :) My sister and I took our 3 kiddies total last year and could only do the same activities as you. Though it was seriously cold. As long as the kiddies had fun that's all the matters...We bought ours online at a discount.
