The final countdown has begun to the launch of some serious splashy fun. In a week, a thrilling new six-storey waterslide tower will finally be open at Perth’s Outback Splash.
Overlooking the park’s ground-level attractions, the new tower features almost half a kilometre (489 metres) of state-of-the-art fibreglass waterslides.
There will be two raft slides (‘The Wall’ and ‘Blackout’), an enclosed golden speed slide (‘Gold Rush’) and if that doesn’t get your adrenaline pumping, there’s also Western Australia’s fastest body slide. Aptly named ‘The Wedgie’, the body slide lets riders plunge downward at speeds of up to 75km/hour. (We suggest you wear a very, um, secure swimsuit for that last one.)
You’ll also be glad to know the new slide tower has been custom engineered with shade in mind. Towering more than 20 metres in the air, is a solid roof to keep you in almost full shade all day. That doesn’t mean you should skip the sunscreen, though.
The new waterslide will be officially open on Wednesday, 20 November at Perth’s Outback Splash. See you there.
