It’s time to dust off your lipstick red Seafolly tankini because a giant pop-up waterslide park is about to touchdown in Melbourne. “Say it again for the people in the back!” MELBOURNE’S GETTING A POP-UP WATERSLIDE PARK. That’s right, Heaven IS on Earth and it’ll be at Caulfield Racecourse from December 28 through to January 24 this summer.
Back by popular demand, and even bigger and slipperier than ever, is Melbourne’s favourite inflatable school holiday oasis – Swisse Kids presents Splashland. Equipped with scarier slides, more activities and a longer season, this summer in Melbourne promises to be our most adrenaline-packed yet.
Arguably the best thing about Splashland is that there’s a little summin’ summin’ for everyone. Are you a big kid who loves some good old fashioned, heart stopping fun? Hop on the Trippo for some high-speed action or hit the air with the Launch Pad. Five years and over? Try the six-lane Speed Racer, the 4.5-metre high Tunnel, or the 40-metre Reef slide and obstacle course. And for the littlies under five? There’s the Crazy Maze obstacle course, the bouncy Castle and the Two Seal Pup Slides.
And if you’d rather read your Jodi Picoult book by the park instead of getting your hair wet, you’re welcome to sit back and enjoy the sun for FREE, or even treat yo’self to the scrummy range of hot and cold food and drinks on offer.
Splashland will kick off with daily sessions Monday to Wednesday and twice-daily sessions Thursday, Friday and over the weekend, and if you’re reading this and under three years of age–entry is free. You’re also a child prodigy and you should tell your parents to pick up some tickets for the most family-friendly fun you can have this season.
Tickets are on sale now and you can secure your spot on Melbourne’s slipperiest slide this summer by heading to the Splashland website here.
