the run off pool looks like a WHS disaster waiting to happen. there probably isnt even enough length for guests to exit the green slide safely. Gonna need to be some strict weight restrictions methinks.

But if someone exits the red and yellow slides at the exact same time, it could cause for an accident. And if that doesn’t happen, when someone is swimming to the edge of the pool (having just been on the yellow) they could be hit by someone coming down the red slide

I don't think it will look like the renders.

Normally with these the manufacturer just gives a 3D model but in this case it looks like the person doing the rendering just read off the plan and interpreted.

The blue slide i bet will only be a 450 degree helix, so much lower, and it follows the green one will just be a couple of gentle straights with the turn

Paid the Northam Rec Centre a visit on my way back from the York Festival, today. There were a couple of tradies on site, despite the fact that it was a public holiday here. There were some slide pieces lying around. The base of the slides and the new tower seem to be in the foreground along with some small pools. There’s a 50m pool in the distance with what looks to be a spectator stand.
