After almost a decade of having only one small theme park nestled beneath the Harbour Bridge, Sydney is ready to dress down and get wet at its brand new waterpark in Western Sydney.
With 2013 looking to be one of the hottest on record and summer that is sure to be a scorcher, the opening of Sydney's Wet'n'Wild means it is going to be one of the most popular places for hot bods to cool off.
The park opened today near Prospect, not far from the former site of the shuttered Wonderland.

It opened just in time for today's expected balmy temperatures, but the park's website has been in meltdown since yesterday with eager swimmers logging on to get their passes.
Even today the site is struggling with the demand.
It is easy to see why the $120m water world is going to be popular, with rides and slides set to thrill the seekers and pools that cool if you are only looking for a dip.
Two of the most popular slides are said to be the Halfpipe and the Typhoon which can throw sliders around till they do not know where they are going.
But if you are after thrills there is the gut-dropping T5 and 360 Rush, slides that are not for the kids or the faint hearted.
Day passes cost $60 while a summer season pass giving unlimited entry will set you back $125.
