Outback Splash at The Maze Family Fun Park in Bullsbrook is great place to spend a summer’s day and it has just got a whole lot better for families with younger children!
A brand new attraction, Octopus Bay has opened up and it caters for children aged 0 – 10 years.
Octopus bay features a shallow, beach entry splash pool partly covered by shade sails which is perfect for younger children to cool off in.
A popular feature is the Octopus slide which consists of 3 slides covered by a water umbrella.
For the little ones there is a super cute rainbow fish slide.
The kids really enjoyed the mini tipping bucket which showered down water at regular intervals. This is great for the younger kids who find the tipping bucket at the big slides a bit too heavy for them – my 6 year old was knocked off her feet with the force!
The main slide area at Outback Splash offers something for all ages with 6 water slides – 2 lane toddler slide, a family slide and 4 large open and covered tube slides.
Families with young children will enjoy the ‘splash’ area which has a multitude of water jets and showers.
The two lane toddler racing slide is a big hit with the younger kids. Even on a busy day, you don’t have to wait more than a minute for your turn.
Kids must be 100cm tall to ride the yellow and red slides and 120cm tall to ride the green and blue slides. Only one person is allowed to go down the slide at any time.
There is a large blue family slide which enables 3 people to ride at once. The younger kids love this one and again the queue for this goes down very quickly.
The centre piece of the slide structure is a huge tipping bucket which, without warning, tips out 1,000 litres of water. If you are stood underneath, nearby or are queuing for a turn on one of the slides – you will get wet!
If you are feeling brave you can take a turn on The Plummet, a 10-metre inflatable slide with a 7-metre drop! Not one for the faint hearted! The Plummet operates 10.30am – 4pm every weekend, school and public holiday during the summer season. Riders need to be 110cm.
Around the perimeter of the water playground is many sun loungers – most of which have shade. If you wish to secure a couple I’d recommend arriving early or later in the day when people start to leave.
If you are willing to splash the cash then you can hire out one on their cabanas for the day. Available to hire for $75 are Splash Cabanas (2 available) located next to the waterslide playground and Bay View Cabanas (5 available) located next to Octopus Bay. The cabanas are suitable for 4 -6 guests and include 2 sun lounges,2 deck chairs and 6 complimentary bottles of water.
If you have a larger group then check out the Party Cabana ($150 per day) which includes a large picnic table, 4 sun loungers and 12 complimentary bottles of water.
If you do miss out on securing a lounger there is huge grassy area next to the water playground where many families had pitched up with their own sun shade from beach umbrellas to large gazebos.
Look out for Pablo, the mascot of The Maze, who pops up every now and then and squirts people with his super soaker!
Right next to the water playground is a toilet block that includes showers and changing rooms. You’ll also find lockers to store your belongings.
Feeling hungry? There a snack kiosk serving pies, sandwiches, sausages, ice-creams and cold drinks. If you are in need of a coffee or a more substantial meal then you’ll find these at Café Iguana.
Outback Splash will be expanded over the next 10 years in 6 stages to include a lazy river and 6 lane racer slide. There are also plans to expand existing facilities at The Maze to include more Maze’s and more food and beverage outlets.
Once you’ve finished getting wet and wild don’t forget that The Maze has so much more to offer! You’ll find mini-golf, a jumping pillow, many mazes, a playground, koalas, emus and camel rides. There are many free BBQs dotted around so why don’t you bring along your sausages and burgers! You can mind out more in our review of The Maze.
