Perth’s Outback Splash - new six-storey slide tower opens November!

Fun soars to new heights at Perth’s Outback Splash!

Outdoor fun-lovers, stand by! Some of the most exciting waterslides in the country – including Western Australia’s fastest-ever body slide – are coming to town, with the new season opening of a bigger and better ‘Perth’s Outback Splash’.

A six-storey slide tower, featuring four brand new waterslides, is guaranteed to get hearts pounding and blood racing! Construction is nearing completion, with the new tower set to open to the public from November 20, 2019, ahead of Summer and end-of-year school holidays.

The launch of the thrilling new waterslides brings with it a name-change for the iconic location. The fun park is now known as ‘Perth’s Outback Splash’ (previously ‘Outback Splash at The Maze’), with its improved range of attractions expected to draw a much broader age group of visitors.

With completion of the NorthLink duel carriageway this year, the park is located only 30 minutes from Perth city, on the doorstep of the Swan Valley in Bullsbrook.

 

Set for Summer

Designed and constructed by global leaders and safety specialists in aquatic projects, Polin Waterparks and Swimplex Aquatics, the new six-storey slide tower features two raft slides, an extreme thrill slide and WA’s fastest body slide, combining to 489 metres or almost half a kilometre in length of waterslides.

Perth’s Outback Splash Director, Paul Woodcock, said excitement was building at the park, with installation work on track for the new slides to open in time for Summer.

“All of the structural steelwork is now fully assembled, and we will soon see the mammoth task of lifting and installing almost half a kilometre of fibreglass waterslides.

“The industry’s leading safety, design and construction teams have come together to bring this project to Perth. We are working with the ongoing support of the WA Health Department, our safety specialists and a world-class international engineering team.

“We are proud to expand our range of attractions here, which will increase the park’s appeal for visitors of all ages. For the people of Perth and for visiting tourists, we invite you to enjoy what will be an unforgettable day of fun,” concluded Mr Woodcock.

 

Fun to the Extreme

Free-fall drops. Lightning-speed acceleration. Gravity-defying twists and turns. Mind-blowing lighting effects. Thrill seekers can expect all of this and more when riding the four new waterslides at Perth’s Outback Splash.

THE WEDGIE

The fastest body slide in WA and one of the tallest of its kind in Australia. An open tube, solo waterslide, producing speeds of up to 75 kilometres per hour with the rush of 100 tonnes of water each hour. Riders plunge to the ground at what feels like a near-vertical drop. A true test of nerves for adrenaline seekers.

GOLD RUSH

Named in homage to WA’s mining history, this solo enclosed body slide is one of the most exhilarating slide paths in the world. With a selfie-worthy glistening translucent design, it gives riders the ultimate rush, producing speeds of up to 60 kilometres per hour, combined with hysteric twists and turns.

THE WALL

A mammoth quarter-pipe, two-person raft slide and the only one of its kind in WA. Begins with natural light effects and gentle acceleration, before riders are thrust into blinding light and an almost free-fall plummet, followed by an 11-metre, near-vertical ascent. Based on ‘The Boomerang’, the No. 1 slide at Bali’s Waterbom Park, with some added improvements.

BLACKOUT

A two-person raft slide that is the closest thing to intergalactic space travel in Perth. Features a ‘black hole’ with a sequence of pitch black, natural light and coloured light effects. Riders are taken on twists and high-speed turns with only a glimpse of daylight, before gravity kicks in and they unknowingly experience an epic final drop, like a ski jump, landing with a massive splash.

 

Perth’s Outback Splash has long been one of WA’s top outdoor entertainment destinations. In addition to the four new waterslides and other seasonal, water-based attractions (open September to April), it offers year-round family fun including mini golf, mazes, sensory play activities, children’s playground, Australian animal experiences and onsite food and beverage outlets.
