    2019 Construction at Outback Splash

    Lots happening at the park still. It has been rebranded to Perth’s Outback Splash. The base of the slides seem to be in place on the new tower and the stairs and structure are close to complete(although still no roof). The slides are due to open November 20. The old slides in the water playground are getting a new coat and are looking the better for it. The main gate has been replaced and is waiting for new signage. There are crazy character graphics inside the main cafe. Ordered my new season pass the other day. The early bird special is $89 until the end of this week when it goes up to nearly $100. Whilst it gives you 10% off food, the cunning geniuses at OS have now made the pass only 7 months long. God knows what you’re supposed to do next winter.

    WWW - New slide tower

    Polin is very popular in Australia at the moment. They’re also building the tower at Outback Splash.

    2019 Construction at Outback Splash

    @Tim Dasco and I did visit Outback Splash last weekend. The staircase up the new slide tower is pretty much complete. The roof has been finished on the ground next to the tower, awaiting a crane to lift it to the top. The structure is being readied for all of the different ride elements and different pieces of tube have been attached together on the ground. Painting on the old water playground has started (with a vibrant red in the process of being applied to the handrails and other parts. The Iguana Cafe is now The Burger Bar, replete with theming and signage. The season pass entrance now has a gate and a roof. There’s been a bit of painting of handrails out the front too.

    Adventure World 2018- improvements

    Inferno was up and testing, today. The new paint job looks good, although they haven’t replaced the scrim and signage down the bottom yet. Unlike, Outback Splash, Kahuna Falls doesn’t appear to be getting a new paint job and looks pretty faded. It looks to be quiet around most of the areas. I could see a cherry picker front and centre (probably work on rail rider) and a ladder up near the kiddie coaster/ yarlii’s barrel spin.

    Adventure World 2018- improvements

    Just under two months until the new season. Inferno is back up and looking good. The main gate entrance way has been repaired. Absolutely no sign of any new construction.

    Northam Aquatic Centre

    It will be interesting to see how they manage it. It does look like it was designed in RCT 2. Could make for a good road trip @Tim Dasco - Kalamunda, Northam, Kulin. Who’s up for the challenge?
  8. It appears the four water slide tower and pool complex should be ready by January. https://www.ausleisure.com.au/news/northam-aquatic-centre-moves-toward-january-2020/

    2019 Construction at Outback Splash

    Unlike some gates in Perth, construction continues at Outback Splash. The staircase is progressing nicely on the Polin Waterpark’s slide tower. The park is looking nice; although the original water playground could do with a repaint. The Outback Snack’s kiosk now has a verandah. There’s a $5 mega sale of the park’s merchandise too.

    2019 Construction at Outback Splash

    @Tim Dasco and I returned to the park, today. We had been planning a visit, but the park did a construction update on Friday showing the slide tower had gone vertical. Other changes we noticed included: a new season pass holder entryway, the doors have changed location on the Iguana Cafe and a fence has been removed around the back of the park which actually allows us better vision of the construction(that was nice). They have a Lego Hunt on at the moment, and we discovered zero bricks. The park was empty when we arrived there just after 10 and was quite busy by lunchtime.

    2019 Construction at Outback Splash

    The weather in Perth is pretty lousy, this weekend, but I did manage to get to Outback Splash for a couple of hours. Not a lot has happened with the slides. Someone has been playing around with the different parts, assembling them over the grass, although a lot are out of view. It appears some concrete has been poured for the slide footings/footers. A fence and or trees have been removed from the front of the park. A couple of piles of bricks have appeared near the west side, and there’s 50% off merch - bonus!
