With one world down (Sea World) and two to go, we decided to take advantage of Queensland's gorgeous summer weather and take a trip to Wet 'n' Wild Water World.

A forty-five minute drive from Brisbane, Wet 'n' Wild is the least expensive theme park on the Gold Coast. A one-day pass costs $59.99 for an adult and $34.99 for a child (age 3-13). You can also take an Esky filled with food and drinks inside with you, saving you a bundle.
Buccaneer Bay
We arrived just after 10am with our packed picnic and set up base at Buccaneer Bay, a pirate-themed paradise for preschoolers.

Wet 'n' Wild is a water wonderland for all ages. Our youngest had a splashtastic time at Buccaneer Bay while our five year-old really enjoyed frolicking in the wave pool and floating down the river on a tube at Calypso Beach.

Our eight-year old and her older cousin headed to the Extreme H2O Zone for more daring rides, like The Kamikaze. My husband, the biggest kid of all, got his thrills on the Aqua Loop; a trapdoor is released, plunging daredevils into a massive vertical free fall down a transparent looping waterslide reaching speeds up to sixty kilometres per hour.
Surfrider
For extreme thrill seekers, there is the Surfrider, Tornado, and Blackhole.

All rides and slides are included in admission with the exception of these: Flowrider, Zipline, and Skycoaster.

Dive 'n' Movies are also included with admission and screen every night from December 27 until January 15. You can watch the latest movies on a huge 15 X 10 metre screen with surround sound while floating in the wave pool or lounging poolside.

For a limited time, Locals Summer passes (expiring in February) can be extended until the end of June 2012 for only $20. Upgrades must be done at one of these theme parks: Wet 'n' Wild, Sea World, or Movie World.
