GREENSBORO — It’s officially summer; that means the kids are out of school and already complaining of boredom.
You’re in dire need of finding entertainment for them with all this newfound free time, right?
There is a solution to these problems right in our backyard. Visiting Wet ’N’ Wild Emerald Pointe Water Park is a great way to entertain the kids (not to mention the adults) this summer. From thrillers like “Daredevil Drop” to the kid-friendly rides such as the “Cyclone Zone,” there’s something for everyone.
New this year is the “Soak Zone,” which features a half-acre of water spraying features. Unlike water slides where it’s only one or two to a float, the “Soak Zone” is a great way for the whole family to bond.
Being the 12th largest waterpark in the nation, there’s no shortage of things to do. Relax in the wave pool or lazy river, push the edge of your comfort zone on waterslides such as the “Dragon’s Den” or “Dr. Von Dark’s Tunnel of Terror,” or simply catch some rays.
