Is it really Summer if you don’t take a visit to a waterpark? Located in Greensboro North Carolina, Wet ‘n Wild Emerald Pointe is an amazing place to spend the day. This water park is one of the top-rated in the Carolinas.

The Cabana

On this trip to Wet ‘n Wild, both my significant other and I rented one of the Cabanas. There was a great view of the harbor from our cabana. The Harbor View cabanas are located in Happy Harbor and can accommodate a maximum of ten guests. You do have to pay extra if you go over eight people. It is only $10 per extra two guests. Cabanas are great because they are both private spaces as well as have waiter/waitress service. By doing this, you can enjoy your visit to the park without having to wait in long lines. If the park gets busy, you can relax in your own cabana with a table and chairs all day. It is important to note that a cabana rental does not include park admission.

Reservations for cabanas must be made online at least 24 hours before arrival, and check-in must be completed by 1 pm to avoid cancellation. If you rent a cabana, you can order food and drinks (both non-alcoholic and alcoholic). There is also a locker inside your cabana. I highly recommend renting one of these because the convenience is worth every penny.

The Rides and Water Fun

I just want to start off by saying this water park is fun for all ages. There are adrenaline-pumping rides like Dare Devil Drop and Bombs Away and relaxing attractions like Lazee River. Try out the Dragon’s Den, The Edge, Dr. Von Dark’s Tunnel of Terror, or Raging Rapids if you want a thrill. For those of you who have little ones, Happy Harbor, the Leisure Lagoon, Soak Zone, The Cyclone Zone, or Thunder Bay are perfect for a day of cooling off and play.

We had so much fun that we didn’t want to leave even after a full day of activities! I especially enjoyed the Dare Devil Drop. I went two times. It’s a long way to the top though, so brace yourself! The Lazee River is also my favorite because it’s so relaxing. I could float there all day long! You can check out photos from my visit below.

Overall Thoughts

There are many family-friendly activities at Wet’n Wild Emerald Pointe, as well as kid-friendly attractions and, of course, the slides that will delight thrill-seekers. It offers more than 40 rides and attractions. It’s true that North Carolina has plenty of fun things to do, but nothing compares to a day at Wet’n Wild. This is a classic place to create priceless memories for you and your family. I also recommend taking a photo with the old-school octopus if you visit the park. (Hint… it’s near the Soak Zone!) Happy traveling.
