I was compensated for this post but all opinions are my own.
When you live in the South, finding a way to cool off is essential to surviving the summer!
So today I’m bringing you my experience visiting Wet n Wild Emerald Pointe with little kids plus a special opportunity (just for my readers) for Wet n Wild discount tickets.
Emerald Pointe Greensboro Water Park
The Wet n Wild Emerald Pointe address is 3910 S Holden Rd, Greensboro, North Carolina. It is only a 45-minute drive from our home outside of Durham, NC.
Emerald Point has more than 36 rides and attractions and has been named one of the top 10 water parks in the US by USA Today.
Visiting Emerald Pointe With Little Kids
Wet n Wild is our absolute favorite area attraction to visit in the summer. We’ve gone every year since my daughter was 2 years old, and there is more and more she can do every year.
There is surprisingly a LOT for little kiddos here. When I first went I expected maybe a kiddie pool, but there are TWO areas specially designed for little ones.
They have a slide you can go down with your little one (the big yellow slide in the background) which is a great way to get them warmed up to water slides.
There are many more kids’ slides, a kids’ raft ride, a miniature wave pool, and more.
My daughter loves all of the above attractions plus the Lazy River.
We can stay busy all day just in the parts of the park geared for little ones.
There are also several larger pools that little ones can go in provided they are wearing a Coast Guard-approved life vest (which are provided free of charge).
And of course, there is the famous wave pool at Wet n Wild. Just be prepared that the waves are strong even in the shallow water!
Emerald Point Cabanas & Food
I was the guest of Emerald Point this week and they treated us to a Cabana, which is a fantastic way to “plus” your experience.
You can have up to eight people per cabana and have access to your own table and chairs, lounge chairs, a safe for your valuables, and a server who can deliver food right to your cabana.
Starting at $125 per day they certainly aren’t cheap, but they could be a nice way to celebrate a birthday or other special event with family and friends.
And of course there’s food! Unfortunately, you can’t bring your own food into the park like you can at Disney, but I think the food isn’t overpriced and is at least decent quality. We like the pizza the best.
Wet N Wild Discount Tickets
There are many ways to get discount tickets for Wet and Wild Emerald Pointe.
One is through NC State Employees Credit Union branches.
Here is a link to discount prices from years past, but you will have to call your local branch to see what this year’s discounts are.
Or if you think you will visit more than once, get a season pass!
I think season passes to Wet’n Wild Emerald Pointe offer incredible bang for your buck. You’ll have a blast every time we visit and save hundreds of dollars compared to a pool membership.
I hope this post answered your questions about visiting Wet n Wild Emerald Pointe with little ones and gave you an opportunity for Wet N Wild discount tickets.
