You’re going to wet yourself
If you're the type of person who climbs six storeys worth of stairs just for the chance to launch yourself down a slide, then this is your lucky day.

The new waterslide tower features four new worldclass water slides

On November 20, 2019 Perth's Outback Splash is launching a brand new mega tower, which will feature four individual slides, which combine to just under half a kilometre of state-of-the-art fun.

Once you climb the 101 steps there will be:

A two-person raft slide 'The Wall' –there's no room for modesty here, but it's claimed 'The Wall' is an improvement on Bali's Waterbom Park 'The Boomerang' (which was recently voted the top waterpark in Asia) with an enormous quarter pipe and almost near-vertical ascent

A two-person raft slide 'Blackout' which has a mind-blowing series of natural light-effects and alternating pitch black and disorienting colours as you rush to the bottom

An enclosed solo golden speed slide 'Gold Rush' which will have you seeing gold everywhere as you race to the bottom at up to 60km/hour in one of the world's most exhilarating slide paths

And the fastest body slide in Perth, aptly named 'The Wedgie', where you can reach speeds of up to 75km/hour thanks to being one of the tallest of its kind in the whole of Australia

Scared? It's good to be a little scared.

What it's not good to be is sunburnt, so all the Mums will be very happy to know that the new slide tower has been specifically built to keep sliders in the shade, with a giant UV-rated shade-sail protecting everyone in the queue, while as you climb you are protected by the tower itself and a solid roof at the top.

The new waterslide tower was designed and constructed by global leaders and safety specialists in aquatic projects, Polin Waterparks and Swimplex Aquatics, with ongoing support of the WA Health Department.

Combined the slides are almost half a kilometre of sheer thrill

I can see you reaching for your bathers and towel which is good, but please remember there is a height minimum of 120cm for the new slide tower, plus a maximum weight of 120kg for the single rafts and 180kg for the doubles.

Fear not though little people, as Perth's Outback Splash (formerly known as 'Outback Splash at the Maze') has plenty of other fun things to do for kids of all ages including Splash Island, which is a three-storey waterslide playground with kids splash zone, mini-golf, mazes, sensory play, children's playground and Australian animals.

A great day out for friends and families

You will also find newly renovated cafes and burger bars, shaded outdoor seating, and new party cabanas for hire.

While Splash Island and the year-round attractions are already open, the new world-class slide tower will be officially opened to the public on Wednesday 20th November.

Perth's Outback Splash Director, Paul Woodcock says "We are proud to have added to our attractions, expanding the park's appeal for visitors of all ages. We invite everyone out this Summer to enjoy these amazing waterslides that are worldclass, right here in Perth."
