We arrived around 11:30am and found the car park with plenty of spare spots. We were lucky the water park wasn't too crowded. Reception staff was friendly and advised we could choose between tickets for rides ($28 pp) or swim only ($12 pp). Prices are...More

We visited this place few months ago. The owner refused my wife to enter with pizza while other people were allowed to enter. The owner is racist , non courteous and extremely rude person. The water slides are average.

Whilst there is still room for a lot of fun to be had here especially for kids and especially if they don't attend these sort of parks often the place is dating somewhat. They have added a couple of additional slides a few years back...More

Limited slides but great location and not too bad for a city such as Canberra that has a shortish summer season. Could be a little more friendly on the wallet but I guess they have to make a profit in the short season they have.

Thanks Karen Y, that is nearly right! $25 will get you an All Day Slide pass which gives you access to every slide and pool in the Park. You need to be over 1.1m tall to go on the bigger slides so take that into account when... More
