One of the eye catching aspects of the centre are our three colourful water slides. Each slide offers a different, yet exciting experience.
About the rides
FOR THE DAREDEVILS
Our blue ROCKET starts with a mind blowing drop having begun in a glass enclosed rocket launcher! You will be plunged thrillingly (and of course safely) through a number of loops down to the end.
Scare factor: Once that door closes, there's no turning back
Our yellow PIPELINE is a wild ride, as it zips you around a series of loops and bends.
Scare factor: Fast and furious
SHARE IT WITH A FRIEND:
The TUMBLER is for 2 people to share together on a raft. You will first accelerate around the space boat getting you closer to the leaving point. From there you will then accelerate toward the space shuttle, climbing and dropping down from the walls of an enormous cavern!
Scare factor: Fear is best shared with a friend.
All our rides should be tackled by confident people who are ready for an adrenaline hit!
In order to ride the slides you must:
- Be aged 7 and over and be at least 120cm tall
- Not be pregnant, have heart conditions or in general poor health
- Not weigh more than 120kg on the Rocket, or a combined weight of 200kg on the Tumbler double raft
