According to mr. search engine, a 'wedgie''is the act of pulling up the material of someone's underwear tightly between their buttocks as a practical joke.' Luckily when I was a school-going child, this practical joke was reserved for our male counterparts … not because the girls were too precious, but rather that we didn't wear shorts.
The Big Wedgie is definitely not intended for those predisposed to being faint-hearted but is rather aimed at thrill seekers and adrenaline junkies. The Big Wedgie is the tallest and most extreme stand-alone inflatable waterslide in the whole world! The Big Wedgie towers in at a thumpingly massive 18.2 metres high and eighty-two metres long! Can you believe that! What a whopper!
In addition, the Big Wedgie boasts a massive fifty-five degree drop down a steep slope, whilst being soaked in water. It also has a four-lane racer, so families and dare-devil buddies can compete together at the same time. Families that play together, stay together!
Gold Coast, we have really been favoured with good luck as the Big Wedgie and it's smaller cousins are making their appearance at Fisherman's Lawn Park on Marine Parade, in Broadwater Parklands, from the 7 December 2018 through to the 28 January 2019 - which means a whole summer of slippery, sliding, watery fun!
