North Carolina’s Wet’n Wild Water Park Officially Re-Opening This Weekend


Wet’n Wild Emerald Pointe, located about an hour north of Charlotte in Greensboro, just announced it will be opening its gates to guests for the first time since Labor Day 2019, a 627-day closure caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Along with bringing pools, rides and slides online, key popular events like Girl Scout Day and the Father’s Day Flop are back on the calendar.

“We can’t wait to open Memorial Day weekend and welcome guests back for the Wet’n Wild Emerald Pointe experience,” says Adam Good, General Manager. “This summer offers much to be excited about, and we’ll keep the safety of our Guests and Team Members as top priority as we welcome everyone back to the park.”

While Wet’n Wild Emerald Pointe begins to regain some normalcy in 2021, providing a clean, safe and fun experience remains essential. Visitors and staff will note additional sanitizing stations and enhanced cleaning measures compared to pre-pandemic operations. In keeping with the latest guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services, Guests and Team Members who are fully vaccinated can forgo those precautionary measures, while those who are not fully vaccinated must wear a facial covering and practice social distancing during their visit. Facial coverings cannot be worn while enjoying water-based activities due to water safety best practices.
