Wet ‘n’ Wild Hawaii
This 29-acre park with over 25 water rides and attractions on Oahu’s Leeward coast is not just for families and weekend visits, says Eddie Galdones, senior sales and marketing executive.
“We are seeing an increase in bookings for 2012 in company picnics, one of our popular options for groups and special events,” explains Galdones. “After the last few years of struggling with cost-cutting, companies are looking to thank their employees for sticking by them. What better way than by bringing employees and their families for a company-sponsored day of sun, fun and excitement.”
Galdones says employee appreciation group picnics top the list for Wet ‘n’ Wild’s company-sponsored events. Few businesses may be aware that the water adventure park also has small conference rooms available for meetings and seminars. When morning business sessions wrap up, participants, joined by their families, can segue into afternoon water adventure activities.
Companies also utilize the park’s outdoor attractions for team-building activities and challenges. “We’ve had the military come and use our facility for water training for their troops,” says Galdones. For companies looking for a unique venue, it may just be the right out-of-the-box location for a client reward day, company celebration or motivational outing.
In addition to group events and picnics, Wet ‘n’ Wild Hawaii has an 18-hole mini golf course, evening events and entire park buy-out options. Able to accommodate groups from 50 to 5,000, the park is a popular site for large annual employee and member gatherings by companies and labor unions and offers group packages at a discount and customized packages, adds Galdones.
