The biggest, wettest, craziest way to spend summer
If you are heading down the Graham Farmer Freeway over the next few months, cast your eye over the new pop-up at Belmont Raceway.

This is no mere temporary attraction, but the largest inflatable waterslide in the world, a whopping 7 storeys high, and dual laned so you can race your similarly crazy friends.

23 metres high, the Drop is just one of the many attractions at the new Xscape at the City, run by the same team who manage the perennially popular Xscape at the Cape in Dunsborough.

Xscape will operate from December to April and is a family friendly destination - and although there are no age restrictions, there are height restrictions on some of the rides of 110cm (the height of your average five or six year old), and children under five will need to be accompanied by an adult at all times.

Other attractions include a four lane 'waterfall' slide where you splash down from a starting point of over 15 metres high and The Cliff, another terrifyingly named waterslide.

For those who prefer to keep their feet on the ground, there will be a massive water play pool and the Dinosaur Water Park with six mini waterslides (maximum 4.2m high), water jets and other fun attractions perfect for smaller kids.

In another record breaking display, there will also be the largest inflatable obstacle course in the world where you can race your friends over 65 metres of covered bouncy terrain.

Add to this 18 shaded trampolines, an enormous chill-out zone with beanbags and other relaxing comforts, a dedicated under 5s area, and you have what will probably be Perth's most popular destination this summer.

There will be an on-site café plus plenty of shaded picnic and seating areas, free parking at the racecourse, and a free shuttle bus operating from the Claisebrook Train Station.

Tickets are only $32.50 for all-day access to all rides, and $27.50 for all-day access to the pools and dry attractions (ie not the large waterslides).

Non-participating spectators are charged a nominal $4 entry fee with $2 being donated to Telethon.

Under fives are free, and can have access to the special Under 5s Kids Zone as well as the water play areas (when accompanied by a paying adult).

Tickets will be available online soon and it is recommended to purchase in advance to beat the crowds.
