Temperatures in El Paso are rising and it's not even officially summer yet! According to beloved meteorologist Chuck D. it hit 104 degrees today and it will likely hit 105 tomorrow. Which is why so many were happy that Wet N Wild opened their doors. People hit the wave pool for the first time this summer since the opening of Wet N Wild was delayed due to the pandemic.

Opening day came and went, with president and family owner of the park Chandra Edwards-Cottingham telling KFOX that it was a successful, and possibly the hottest, opening date. Wet N Wild is open Monday through Friday with just under 2,000 people are allowed at once. Because at the time, it is by reservation, here's how you can reserve your table:

Last month, when state officials announced that water parks were allowed to open, Wet N Wild announced that they would be delaying their opening and that they were making important changes to the park to ensure a safe day in the sun. Among those changes announced were extremely limited capacity starting at just 25%, online ticket and picnic table reservations, social distancing in all lines, attractions, tables, hand washing stations around the park, special employee and free guest face masks, increased sanitation and cleaning procedures and touch-less entry with online reservations.

If your concern is the coronavirus, physicians remind you that there is no evidence of spread through water that has been treated per recommendations but that common areas do require distancing, masks and the other usual precautions. Wet N Wild is open Monday through Friday from 11 A.M. to 6 P.M., and Saturday & Sunday from 10 A.M. to 7 P.M., you can find tickets here.
