Wet-N-Wild Waterworld is taking the good with the bad as it open its doors for its 41st year. Fortunately, there’s more of the former than the latter.

This week on El Paso Townsquare, Wet-N-Wild’s President and co-owner, Chandra Edwards-Cottingham, gives us a video tour of what you can expect when you come to the park this summer, and talks via phone about the challenges Wet-N-Wild is meeting head on to provide the Borderland with a much-needed dose of fun in the sun.

Chandra was open about the challenges Wet-N-Wild is facing, along with every other Borderland business. But she believes the scales are tipped toward the positive.

Good news: the park is open every day of the week.

Bad news: allowing only 25-percent of capacity means that if you don’t make reservations first you might find yourself standing in line, unable to get in.

Good news: 25-percent capacity also means a 75-percent easier time getting on the most popular rides.

More good news: chlorine kills the Rona Corona. With plenty of hand sanitizing stations around the park and pre-distanced picnic tables, Wet-N-Wild is perhaps as safe a public space as is possible under current circumstances.

Yet more good news: Chandra let us in on Wet-N-Wild's newest ride which should be up and running very soon.
