All 36 rides and attractions are open, and new events will be announced in June.

The water park has a majority full staff and is still hiring.

Up to 600 employees were trained in preparation for the reopening. Not all are new to Wet’n Wild.

Johnathon Jessup is a re-hire.

“It’s wonderful. So being not opened last year was, you know, a little devastating because I love it here. It’s like a family. It’s a very enjoyable place to work,” Jessup said.
