      Our rides and slides

      The Subtropical Swimming Paradise is the home of thrilling water rides and slides, from our gravity-defying Tropical Cyclone (open from 11am to 7pm) to our family favourite Wild Water Rapids. Rides and slides vary at each village but you're guaranteed twists, turns and drops on each one. 

      Children's water play areas

      Let your little ones dip their toes in our water play areas with little slides, spray fountains and a splashing pool for the little ones and for older children a family water play area with fun slides, giant tipping buckets and more if they're a little more confident in the water.
