Wet n’ Wild Sydney the leisure park with adrenaline guaranteed
The first water park in Australia to use RFID technology

Just in time for the start of the Australian summer, the unique Wet n‘ Wild water park in west Sydney opened its gates. This water-based leisure park promises to be one of the largest and most exciting water park resorts in the world. The more than one million forecast annual visitors will find numerous quirky chutes and rides including the highest Sky Coaster in the world. The 25 hectare leisure park could make their motto „pure adrenaline“.
To make sure the eventful day in the cool water goes as smoothly, Wet n‘ Wild – is relying on a contactless, RFID-based locker system from GANTNER. Comfortable bracelets, which can be worn all day long, including in the water, mean that day visitors and season-ticket holders alike have their pick of lockers in one of the four changing areas. Everything is stored, safe and sound, while they are out enjoying all the attractions the park has to offer. The wristbands come in different colours and sizes and can be individually branded. The whole locking system for the lockers is connected to the new GAT Relaxx management software from GANTNER. This system gives the park management an overview of locker usage and means that they can get statistical analyses and set overnight opening functions at the click of a mouse.
