Wet ‘n’ Wild
The December 2013 opening of this 62-acre, $80 million campus located in the western suburbs of Sydney was a game-changer for the city. You can easily make a day of it here—Wet ‘n’ Wild boasts four gigantic, multi-tentacled towers from which slides of varying degrees of thrill emerge. Not scary enough? The Sydney SkyCoaster puts daredevils nearly 250 feet in the open air before dropping them in freefall. Too scary? Take a dip in the wave pool, which holds a whopping 1.8 million gallons of water.
