hell the racers at Adventure Park in the SAME state were far longer.

Funfields' Kraken Racer is estimated between 20-29m longer than the Aqua Racer. Estimate 85m for Aqua Racer (although they state 80+m) & 109m for Kraken. Kraken Racer is also a lot faster with estimated speeds of 50-60kms depending on rider. Aqua Racer around 40kms.

My next installment of our Melbourne trip will see non theme park related attractions added in together to give an overview of some of the other points of interest that you can experience whilst in the fair Victorian capital.

Maybe include Kryal Castle just outside Ballarat; a lovely little medieval themed park. And Fairy Park in Anakie. Both with rich history and quite unique.

Did you check out Gumbuya World on this trip too?

No it was on the shortlist but ultimately we had to drop it. Honestly, we did so much I guess we had to leave something to do for next time 😊👍

Thanks for the clarification here Paula- it really did not seem that Funfields was the longer unit! Is this longer than the Octo 8 racers at WWW, or the Racers at Wet 'N Wild Sydney, do you know?

Hi Jobe, Correction the Kraken Racer at Funfields is 113m long. ProSlide did a case study stating 113m.
The Octo at WWW is 120m long (states around 50kms/hr). Not sure about the H2Go Racer; looks like a longer ride duration and a bit slow but no idea on length.
