Improvements have been made to a popular attraction just 15 months after it re-opened.

More than 400,000 people have visited Wet ‘n’ Wild, in North Shields, since it re-opened.

And those visiting the north east’s largest waterpark will have noticed a number of improvements.

Work has been carried out on the Discovery Island play area. Improvements saw all the slides relined, and repainted giving mini Wet ‘n’ Wild a bright, colourful, and fresh appearance.

Kevin Nolan, duty manager, said: “We are regularly looking at ways of offering our guests an even better experience when visiting Wet ‘n’ Wild.

“With this in mind we have made significant improvements to our Discovery Island children’s play area.

“The work involved stripping back the slides, then relining them and giving them a new paint job.

“We are really happy with the work that’s been carried out, and we’re sure that our guests will notice the improvements.

“The children area really stands out, and gives a bright, colourful feel as you enter the building.”

Following comments on the water temperature during the winter last year, Wet ‘n’ Wild have installed four new boilers, which will offer guests great water and shower temperature.

Further improvement works are planned.
