  • The facility is good. Since this is one facility and the other closest one is in sydney, I'm sure the authority can do a lot more to attract a greater crowd. 1. They could serve halal food in the cafeteria. Then it could address a bigger chunk of society. 2. The changing room renovation. It could be actually a changing room , with changing rooms . Right now there are lavatory and shower place. But no separate room for change . I understand by some culture they don't mind. But since Australasia is growing being multicultural. In many culture it is not that prominent to change clothes in front of others. 3. Few more shady tents always a good idea. As all of us know sun is very generous particularly in Canberra. 4. Few more mortgages of slip slop and sunnies would be a change be appreciated by all. And lastly but not least at least one form fountain with various position of drinking water refill facility. Currently one can drink with a vertical fountain. But not everyone is fond of it. To make it more effective in regards to registration I bet every day guests would appreciate it.
  • The slides there are: 2x twister/fast green enclosed slide (hold your nose and clench your thighs), 2x fast two person riding on a inflatable slides, 2x looping around the tower slides- red and blue (blue is great for your first slide as it's not enclosed and is a gentle ride). Other than that there's two preschooler/ adventurous toddler slides and two toddler slides where parents can stand beside them (in the pool). The slides close an hour before the park closes and the shop before that. The tower smells bad (could do with some disinfecting), but is bearable, to get up to the red and blue slides. The water at the end is shallow enough for shorter kids to stand up in. Staff were diligent in the timing of letting people go down each slide (with the exception of the blue and red where there is a light indicating when to go). There are lockers, which is handy (take gold coins). All up it's a good balance of thrilling and fun. Recommend for primary- aged kids.
  • Got there during a school swimming carnival and was told I had to wait until they left. Fair enough. I asked when they were finishing and was told an hour. So waited for an hour and went back. Then was told by another employee that it would take another hour. So waited for another hour. Was then told by the first employee that they wouldn't be done for another 3 hours and I could pay for the ticket now. I said screw you and left. Get your dam information straight.
  • Overall a fun water park for all ages. Spending a couple hours here is great with fun slides and a 100m pool. Thought the lifeguards could be nicer. As this is a family water park the lifeguards should not be swearing near children.
  • There are a few life guards that are very kind and interactive. I have witnessed a man working there speaking to other employees with complete disrespect because they nicely asked him to pump up one of the flooms (which I had witnessed him pumping them up when the slides were being turned on). The tower for the red and blue slides smells absolutely vile and I’m sure it hasn’t been cleaned in years. The prices of this place are quite expensive ( $115 for 4 kids) Besides all of that the place is decent and is mostly clean except the tower and there are lots of shaded areas for putting your property and lockers (bring gold coins). My experience there was good fun!
