Perth, being a sunny city, has a huge selection of water slides at many different venues including theme parks, water parks, and indoor leisure centres – meaning you can ride the slides all year round! Here is the Buggybuddys ultimate guide to the best water slides for kids of all ages in Perth:
Outside Water Slides
Adventure World, Bibra Lake
There are SO MANY wet and wild slides at Adventure World. The Kraken is an enormous world record-breaking funnel slide. The four-person raft negotiates over 150 metres of dark twists and turns, including a heart-pounding drop and a 360-degree twist before reaching the massive 60-foot funnel – the height of a six-storey building!
Kahuna Falls is a giant wet play area. This attraction has over 100 water-play features, including small tube slides and a giant bucket that tips torrents of water every few minutes!
Old favourites the Rocky Mountain Rapids, multi-lane Tidal Wave speed slides and the very dark Tunnel of Terror- a fully enclosed corkscrew waterslide are also very popular!
Little ones (under 6) will love the mini water play area – Kingdom Falls. The interactive aqua playground has colourful spray loops, small slides, mini bucket tips, a mushroom rain tree and a giant tipping bucket, keeping kids entertained for hours.
Perth’s Outback Splash, Bullsbrook
The waterslides at Outback Splash just keep getting bigger and better! In late 2019 four new thrill-seeking slides opened, including The Wall (a quarter-pipe raft slide) Black Out (featuring colourful light effects), Gold Rush, and WA’s fastest body slide – The Wedgie!
Splash Island area includes 6 fun waterslides, as well as a giant tipping bucket, interactive sprays and colourful water cannons. The Plummet inflatable slide stands at over 10 meters high with a 7-metre drop!
And little kids aren’t forgotten at Outback splash! In the Octopus Bay area, designed especially for toddlers, there’s a shaded 35metre splash pool, 3-slide giant octopus and a mini tipping bucket.
Kalamunda Water Park
The Perth Hills waterpark has kept generations of families cool. Here kids will love riding the Corkscrew Water Slide, which gets faster as the turns get tighter on the way down. The aptly named Zig Zag Water Slide is a slower, longer slide with sharp, tight. Children must be at least 5 years of age to ride. Read more in the Buggybuddys review.
Northam Aquatic Facility
Did you know Northam is home to a brand new $10 million Aquatic Facility? The state-of-the-art venue opened in January 2020 and boasts an Olympic size swimming pool, leisure pool, water slides, splash pad and BBQ facilities. The highlight was the 4 water slides, which range in height, speed and thrill factor! The aqua slide being a firm favourite. The water is 1m deep at the bottom of the water slides.
