We're committed to investing in the future of the park
– Jose Diaz

The Wet 'n' Wild waterpark in Sydney, Australia, is to reopen on 28 September, having undergone a rebrand to match the three California waterparks owned by Parques Reunidos, the Spanish company which purchased the property in 2018.

Raging Waters Sydney is the new name for the attraction, which was purchased last year by Parques Reunidos purchased from Village Roadshow for AU$40m (US$28.1m, €24.9m, £22.3m).

According to the park's new website, it will feature a new ride – Whirlwind – a 206-metre journey reaching speeds of up to 25kmph, taking riders from dark tunnels into the open air, back into darkness and then emerging with a splash at the bottom. Whirlwind is due to be open from November 2019 and will be located close to the H2Go Racers and 360Rush rides.

A statement on the park's new website says that Parques Reunidos is investing millions of dollars during the off-season, and claims this is the largest investment the park has had since opening in 2013.

As well as Whirlwind, there will be new food outlets, revamped retail locations, more shade throughout the park, a refreshed group event area, new family VIP cabanas, and easy payment plans to pay off season passes.

There are more than 30 slides and attractions, including the world's tallest double SkyCoaster, and Nickelodeon Beach – a kids' area including characters such as SpongeBob SquarePants, Patrick Star and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

Tony Brancazio, general manager at the park, said: "We have listened to our guests and have made some key changes that will improve their experience in the park. We are looking forward to a great season."

And Parques Reunidos CEO Jose Diaz, emphasised that the company was "committed to investing in the future of the park through new attractions, infrastructure and services".
