Wet–N-Wild Emerald Pointe Water Park

Crashing waves, splashing geysers, cascading water! Where can you find this and much more? If you thought of Emerald Point, in Greensboro, North Carolina, then you are correct!

When you load up your family and head to Emerald Pointe for a day of wet and wild fun you won’t be disappointed. Emerald Pointe has an interactive roller coaster, the Hydra Fighter II that careens through the rapid water walls as you get blasted by geysers and water cannons. At Surf’s Up! by Thunder Bay, you can grab a body board or tuber and ride the waves — some of which are 6 feet high and 84 feet wide! For an adrenaline rush, check out the Dare Devil Drop, which is the East Coast’s tallest and fastest speed drop waterslide. Other rides include the Twin Twister, the Cyclone Zone, 13 slides, 3 family activity pools and 4 kiddie’s pools. There is also a sand volleyball court and a basketball court. So, get your suit on, grab your towel and come spend a day catching the waves at Greensboro’s Wet -N- Wild Emerald Pointe Water Park. You will be sure to have waves of fun!

If you are traveling through the South you must stop at Six Flags over Georgia. Our Georgia tourism site even has a page where you can find Six Flags over Georgia discounts. Check it out and buy your tickets there to save on this fun park.
