I visited Wet & Wild with my partner and daughter (aged 3 years). I am 50/50! Admission was a little over priced, not much signage to direct you to the changing area, Chcnaging cubicles are small, the family changing room was not big enough for all of us to change in so I had to get my own. I noticed sufficient life guards spotted around the pool and can safely say they were doing a good job after watching one of them help a young boy who got a little too out of his depth, very fast...

Well, It started when me and my freinds arranged to go to wet 'n' wild, Having seen the reviews i exsplained to them about everything i over read on my laptop.
when we got in the pool it was filthy! There was moss and dirt all over the pool side which was horrid! We got into the water and it was freezing! after 15 minutes most of my freinds including me had blue lips, We went in the so called 'Lazy River' which did not work at all, THe same for 2 of the slides and the wave machine, We then...

WETNWILD North Shields-When we arrived it looked pleasent but didnt like the idea off walking around with our shoes on when people have to use the changing rooms with no shoes. The cleaner was using a dirty mop,and the canteen wasnt very clean,and very expensive for what you got.
Getting into the water was a shock was so cold we had two babies with us and there lips were blue after 30minutes,we were in a group off 12people so spent nearly 130 just to get in and only spening an hour or so in... (read more)

I would not recommend going to wet and wild in North Shelds. Its run down, dirty and very cold. Most the showers don't work and the shower water is luke warm at the best. I think they must be running it into the ground and squeezing as much cash out of the place before its closed. (read more)

We enjoyed all the slides and the lazy river and all that, and we understand about the mould because that is what constant water does. But the bad thing about it is that you cant go back out to get something to eat unless you stayed out, the showers wernt very hot. And waiting in the ques were freezing, especialy when you have to stand in front of the fan. But the staff and everyone is kind and freindly. But some of the water slides are pretty rubbish and i always get stuck in the tube. But... (read more)

I have just visited Wet n Wild today with my partner (28), my nephew (4) and my partners little girl (9). Although we had a fun time, the place could do with a MAJOR MAKE OVER as I don't think it's had a lick of paint since it opened, nothing has changed since I was there 12 years ago! It cost £43 entry, which I think is a little pricey. The changing rooms are small and could do with revamping, same goes with the toilets. The lazy river isn't very lazy as there aren't very many rings to... (read more)

As this is the only park of it's kind in the North East - there in maybe lies the problem - no competition! My family and friends love the slides. However, the place is filthy. The tiles are broken and dirty. Look behind the 'lagoon' and see litter, bottles and chips - presumably thrown from the cafeteria and never cleaned!The foam which lines the pools on one slide is dirty, ripped and harboring goodness knows how many potential micro-organisms! Try not to look at the water too closely... (read more)

From the start it didn't bode well. There were chavs hanging about outside in their swimming costumes having a fag and the entrance and grounds were dirty and overgrown. When we went in the glass and tiles were all dirty and smeary. Wwe paid anyway (£55 for 2 adults and 3 children) and I couldn't quite believe that people in outdoor shoes could get right up to poolside. The changing roms are accessed by a steep set of stairs which were dirty due to people in trainers going up them and wet... (read more)

I'd not been to Wet n' Wild since I was 16 (am now 28), and I read some of the reviews posted on here before I went which did put me off a bit! Having been today, I had a really good time! The place was pretty much how I remembered it with one extra slide. I think some of the reviews posted err on the negative side a little too much - I didn't notice any mould growing up slides, nor would that really matter if it was on the outside and they were in full working order.

I previously worked at Wet n Wild as a lifeguard.
Here are a few TRUE facts that I think people should know:
Wet n Wild is privately owned, therefore prices are not value for money.
Wet n Wild is privately owned, therefore the water is not heated to save running costs.
Wet n Wild is privately owned, therefore a cheap alternative to chlorine (used in council pools) is used, and the absolute minimum is added to the water.

Excellent great value for money having as long as you want for £10.00 wow. Recommended to all ages as it is fabulous! Changing rooms very dark and are too little the black hole isn't even black the paint is peeling off and needs to be fixed. Kamikaze was great however would not recommend it to any one below the age of five. Mistral was rubbish I stopped half way and couldn't get going again I therefore had to shove my self the rest of the down. Over all absolutely fantastic. (read more)

Wet 'n' Wild is a very suitable water park for all ages. For younger children there is an area with simple and open slides for them to go down. Each ride is rated either slow, medium or fast. There is 'The Lazy River' where there is rubber rings (not many) for you to go down and there is a small pool with a shallow and deep end and a little cave you can swim under with a wave machine every hour I think. The slide suitable for everyone is 'Calamity Canyon' where you go down some slides into a... (read more)

Some of the slides are ok - the double ring ride and the yellow ring ride (cant remember their names). The Black Hole ride looked good but was closed for no given reason. The other fast rides are good too.
The lazy river - there were about 4 tyres for everyone to share, and it was pointless anyway as there was no current so you didn't go anywhere.
Dirty - how hard is it for someone to put a stepladder by the palm trees and clean them? The branches hang vertical with the weight... (read more)
