Water Park for Perth

121 posts in this topic

We are well aware of both the location of Cockburn and how to pronounce it. Stop taking the fun out of it.

Insert your funny \ silly \ double entendre place names here: ( @Gazza i'm looking at you)

I'll start:

  • Cockburn
  • Bastardstown
  • Big Butt Mountain
  • Carpenis River
  • Port Circumcision
  • Dick's Knob

^ I like how Wedding is included in that group.

I live near Innaloo, if that helps.

There's Koolyanobbing in the wheatbelt and a mining town called Woodie Woodie.

Other bizzare places in Perth include Dogswamp and Upper Swan.

That looks incredible. I can't believe how good some of these aquatic centres are becoming these days. Seriously a kids wonderland (and I don't mean as in Wonderland Sydney).

Reckon. It's so close to AW, but it'll be a very different experience. It could be ready as early as the middle of this year. When I first read about this place, I wasn't expecting much. I thought it might be a water playground and a couple of pools, but those slides look great.

Xscape at the City had its media day, today.  There has been lots of local coverage.  The pop up park features the world's tallest inflatable water slide.

Actually got to this place last month, although its name changed to Splash City for its second season.  Went there on its last day, and the place was packed.  It's located in part of the parking lot for Belmont Raceway.  All of the bitumen has been covered by astroturf or plastic mesh, which isn't too harsh on the feet.  The food was reasonable, although there was about a ten minute wait.  There were plenty of tables under cover, so you didn't get too burnt.

It was very much a family and/or tweener crowd as the only ride for adults and big kids were the taller slides.  There was also an inflatable maze, obstacle course, kids playground and main pool.  The seven storey slides are scary because the whole tower wobbles in the breeze.  The ride down is fast (50kph), but over in seconds, and is not too much of a bother.  The three storey slide was probably more fun, because you had to climb up the ladder at the back too.  

There is a great view of Burswood from the park, especially of the new stadium.  I'm sure Splash City will be on again next season.  It would be nice if they made some of the rides a little more permanent.

Managed to pick up cheap tickets to Kalamunda Water Park on Scoopon and finally had time to head up into the hills to check it out. Yeah, this place used to be known as Wet N Wild Kalamunda back in its heyday. The only two slides left are mat ones. They are quite long, probably longer than AW's Tunnel of Terror. They are patched up, but one of them is pitch black in places. They also have piped in music.

The park is quite picturesque and very old school. They have lockers at $2 a day with a $5 deposit. Signs that say 'don't bite the mats'. There were a bunch of ducks roaming around and I even spied a Bandicoot. The staff were very friendly and relaxed. Kalamunda is miles from the coast, so it's a good place for people in the hills to cool down. Apparently, it was the last weekend for the slides for the season.
