"wsdb" Water Slide Database Australia

17 posts in this topic

The Australian Water Slide Database.....

So something I have been thinking of (Ok maybe I'm just killing some spare time in my midyear break )...Anyone reckon it would be possible to make a "water slide database" of all the public waterslides in Australia? I guess my main rules for qualifying would be. -Can't be at a hotel or something like that. -Has to be of a substantial size, so a slippery dip or one of those silly little slides with one turn wouldn't count (Not this for example http://goo.gl/maps/xZu3C ) A few I've found on Google Maps.....

I got two more for Victoria.

1. MSAC in Melbourne, has an enclosed body slide.

2. A lesser known one. A body slide in Bright (country Victoria, around 3 hours out of Melbourne). It actually uses the river as its exit pool, and also the water from it. So as you can imagine it was bloody cold. Don't know who built it, but it's run as a fund raiser for the local rotary club. As a kid, every summer we went to Bright and I remember always being so excited to ride it.

Seems like it has shut? tonofun.com.au goes to nothing too.

I've updated the OP with a few more updates and the stuff other people had posted. Also added notes where the place has something out of the ordinary or interesting about it.

Can't wait to join. Hope it's up soon. I live waterparks just as much as theme parks :-) What about a carnival and fair database too. That'll be cool. - it can remind people about upcoming carnivals and how long they go for and wat rides are going to be there.
