Wet 'n' Wildy
Wet 'n' Wildy is a fictitious RuneScape theme park that was created for the 2010 April Fools joke. On 1 April 2010, Jagex told the Runescape community that it was under construction near their UK office. Its plans were released to players in the RuneScape Theme Park – COMING SOON! update and a Developer Blog.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- In the centre of the map is the Stone of Jas, made to look like the Epcot "Spaceship Earth" attraction that is the centrepiece of the park.
- The parking zones icons and colours are from the three major gods.
- The name Wet 'n' Wildy is a reference to water parks in Queensland and Sydney, Australia; Florida, North Carolina, Las Vegas, Arizona, USA; and North Tyneside, UK which are called Wet "n" Wild.
- 'Merrytania', 'Funbridge' and 'Wildyness' are based on the in-game Morytania, Lumbridge and Wilderness.
- At the cabbage restaurant information section, they mention that cabbages heal one life point. They however heal 10 life points, but 1 hitpoint.
- The hat above the 'Teacups and Sorcerers' ride is based on the Mickey Mouse Fantasia Hat at Hollywood Studios.
- The map of Wet 'n' Wildy looks similar to the map of the Animal Kingdom in Orlando.
- In the URL for the Dev Blog, it says it is an April Fools Joke.
- It is stated in the Dev Blog that the Theme Park will open in the 5th quarter of 2010.
- If one hovers their mouse over the picture, it says "April Fool's."
- If you look at the map of the park, log flume is spelt with an upper-case G. This is a reference to Armies of Gielinor, a Funorb game.
- The name of the coordinator is "Mod Paupersen", this is an Anagram of "Made Up Person".
- The roller coaster "rune-away mine carts" is likely based off of the "run away mine carts" of Alton Towers theme park in the UK.
- The Developers' Blog writer is Mod Pauprsen, as opposed to Paupersen.
- Mod MMG has confirmed that this has the new skill date hidden inside it, as pointed out below.[source needed]
- If the above is true maybe April 13 as foam hand is giant hand which only has 4 fingers and the screen that is in 13D could be the 13th. Also the 5th quarter may be 5 times 4 the 20th.
- The 4th attraction is the 13D cinema. Now the chaos elemental is advertised at this location, and the elemental is commonly linked to giving out hints at new updates. So it is reasonable to think that the update will be in April (4th month of the year) and on the 13th (hence the 13D).
- The "Pirates of Mos Le' Harmless" ride features Johnny Dead and Kiera Bitely, references to Pirates of the Caribbean actors Johnny Depp and Keira Knightly. The change reference Morytania's vampyres and zombies.
- The Missing My Mummy kiosk is based upon the quest.
- The all-you-can-eat cabbage buffet looks like Brassica Prime. This may be a reference to the 2009 April Fools joke, where if a player kicked a cabbage from Draynor to Oo'glog, Brassica Prime would come thank the player and give them a cabbage for their effort.
