Splash City – With heaps of free parking and a free shuttle bus from Claisebrook Station during holidays & peak times, this pop-up water park is going to be a huge hit this summer!
One of the main attractions of the park is The Drop, at 23m this boasts to be the tallest inflatable slide in the world. It really is worth the climbing up all those steps however it’s not for the faint hearted!
The Waterfall is a 16m high, 4 lane slide, perfect for racing. My boys spent quite a bit of me trying to beat me but I had the weight advantage.
And then there is the 8m high inflatable slide, The Cliff which is suitable for beginners and the perfect warm-up before testing your nerve on the Waterfall or The Drop. All 3 slides have a minimum height restriction of 110cms.
For the less adventurous and those under 110cms there is a lot of fun to be had in the Dinosaur Water Park. My 6yr old was in dinosaur heaven, she loved it!
The Dinosaur Water Park has 6 small slides, 4 under the long-neck-asaurus & 2 separate ones that you get to from the outside of the pool.
The slides around the T-Rex can be a bit of a challenge for the kids to get up the ladder unaided. I found myself helping kids of all ages get up there.
The pool around the area is 60cms deep and there are no height limits so adults can also enjoy the dinosaur slides. Just be wary of the shallow pool, I do have a sore tailbone today from sliding down a little too fast.
The 25m x 25m pool is a great place to laze around in a ring or have a play with friends on the inflatable play toys.
The depth is 80cms and in the centre of the pool is a small platform. All children under 5yrs old require direct adult supervision in the Water Play Pool and the Dinosaur Water Park.
It’s not all about the water play at Splash City. For those wanting a break from the water, they can burn off some energy on one of the 18 shaded trampolines. No height restrictions apply, however children under 5 require direct adult supervision.
Or why not challenge family & friends to a race in the 65m dry Obstacle course which is covered by a massive tent? Children under 5 are not permitted on the Obstacle Course.
There is quite a lot of shaded seating areas around the pool and café, including a bean bag filled Chill Out zone perfect for kicking back between rides and an under 5’s fenced play area that includes a lot of high chairs.
You can bring your own food to the park or treat yourself to lunch from the café. The cafe offers a range of freshly made wraps, Turkish bread, salads, muffins and cakes as well as a limited menu of hot dishes such as Burgers ($16.90), All Day Breakfast ($14.90), Nachos ($10.90) and hot chips ($8.80). There is a small kids menu featuring Burger n chips, fish n chips and nuggets and chips all at $9.90.
Splash City have catered well with the amenities for families & disabled with unisex shower change rooms & separate toilets.
Lockers are available to hire either for 4hrs or all day.
My kids and I had a fantastic day at Splash City! I found it to be really well planned and catered well for kids and adults of all ages!
Splash City opens 4th November 2016 and runs until April 2017
