For all the big kids out there, the world’s tallest inflatable waterslide has just hit the Gold Coast and officially opens this weekend!
Literally popping up oceanside at Broadwater Parklands, The Big Wedgie waterslide towers a massive 18 metres above the ground and has three super-fast slides to experience. You’ll be able to get your slide on daily for the next six weeks from 9am to 5:30pm, so it’s a perfect time-filler if you’re babysitting your sister’s kids (hello, favourite aunty!), or your own kidlets are on school holidays.
Now, if a slide is like four-plus storeys high, there’s going to be some rules. So, littlies need to be over a certain age for each slide (10 years for The Big Chuka and 7 years for The Big Wedgie), which seems pretty obvious, really.
Sliding sessions go for up to one hour, so grab your ticket and squeeze in as many downhill runs as you can. Like all good things, The Big Wedgie is here for a good time not a long time, so don’t miss your chance by being all low-key about it…get up to Broadwater, stat.
Happy sliding, folks!
