Although at first we felt we would be a bit too old for this (late 20s) it was actually a great day out and lots of fun (if you like water slides) - it does get busy in the afternoons so my advice is to do Wet n Wild in the morning before the crowds arrive, and then the marine... More

perfect for every age group, lots of shady spots if you early, if not carry big umbrellas and fold up chairs, no food allowed inside unless you buy from the inside take aways, very clean public facilities, good lifeguards

We enjoyed the photo's that the Park took off us while on the rides and it was not expensive to purchase these photos from them. There is also sufficient food stalls so you cannot say you went hungry. Overall this is an awesome fun place to have fun in the sun with your family.

Really enjoyed the rides, was a lot of fun and laughter. Mamba slide was awesome.My teenage sons enjoyed it so much and was so much fun just to be out and about with family. The food was not too bad but I would like to suggest they have a wider variety .

Quite fun place, pretty cheap. Nevertheless, this Wet & Wild in Durban has nothing to do with the ones you can find in the US for example. Half a day will be way enough...

A great day out with the little ones. Quite demanding and really fun rides. Have been to Ushaka a few times but sadly, it is becoming very tatty. Chunks of concrete broken in the shallow pool, (left laying on the floor of the pool). Food is typical of an overpriced, low quality African theme park. I ordered a "Russian on... More

If you want to move to the times where you were young and wild you must visit this place. Mamba slide was the best for me.

If you want to feel like a kid again visit uShaka Wet 'n Wild! We love the very high slide and racing down on the tubes but the toilet bowl has to be the best!

You got to love all the slides and the tube swimming tour while seeing the safely secured sharks in a glass. The live music band next to the swimming pool was lovely as we swam and dance to the lovely tunes. Everything in this area is just close by. Restaurants sells nice food and so is the food stalls inside... More
