Splashing at the Waterpark
31 Jan

They say that you should never let the child inside you die. Family outings helps keep the child inside you alive. Not only it ensures that the kids spend quality times with their parents, but also helps the parents to destress as they spend a refreshing and energy packed days with their little ones. When family outings are planned, it is essential to keep in mind that the entire family can enjoy together. Group activities filled with fun and laughter are the best outings ever. One destination where the entire family always excites to go is a waterpark, and Waterbom Bali offers such activities with loads of adrenaline rush and thrills for the kids.

As the best waterpark in Asia, Waterbom Bali is an oasis in the middle of the famous Kuta stretch and sets in lush tropical garden with many great rides and attractions. Exciting water slides slice through 3.8 hectares of landscaped tropical parks providing hours of fun and entertainment for everyone. With more than 15 rides to choose from, your day is going to be a packed one.

This waterpark has all categories of slides for various age groups. If you are coming with toddlers, then ‘Funtastic’ is the place they will love. It is a large wet playground most suited for small kids 6 and under, where water only ever reaches their knees. There are four tube slides, two short open slides, a climbing net, water jets, canons and a giant tipping water bucket offering hours of fun.

The most popular attraction for families is floating along the ‘Lazy River’ in a rubber tube. The impressive ride is surrounded by dense green foliage where other park attractions are out of sight, creating a feeling that you’re drifting through an Asian jungle full of waterfalls and fountains. ‘Superbowl’ is a gentle slide where the kids have a blast as the slide spins the tube around a big bowl before flushing you out into the pool below. Another major attraction at the park is the ‘Flow Rider’, which lets you experience surfing or body boarding as if you were in the ocean.

For the gaming kids, ‘Water Blaster’ is a super-fun game where you aim and fire the water balloons using catapults to fire at your challenger, hit the bull’s – eye and get them wet. The kids can also try ‘Euro Bungy’ that will catapult them 9 metres into the sky and dare a few flips to pump up the adrenaline.

If your family is up for some serious waterpark activities, then head straight to the slides. The ‘Python’ is the biggest waterslide in the industry. It is a closed in tunnel slide where part of the ride is in complete darkness, which is great for unexpected twists and turns. Waterbom also hosts some crazy, extreme slides for the ones who wants to live life on the edge. ‘Twin Racers’ features a short, enclosed tunnel before gathering momentum for a sudden drop. Lying face forward, race your friends down the slide. Another side by side slide is ‘The Fast N Fierce’ where you plummet toes first down a giant open tube. It goes very fast and is suitable for kids looking for a rush.

The two most challenging and nerve-wrecking slides are the ‘Python’ and the ‘Climax’. Whisking riders along a twisty tube, the pipeline gets your heart racing. It takes only 10 to 13 seconds to slide through the 150 metres tube at 3.5Gs. Looks can be deceiving with this one, as it resembles any other slide but the speeds are extreme when you are in the Python. Climax is another extremely intense ride where you start in a small chamber, and after waiting a few seconds, a trap door opens right below you to drop you 16 metres at 2.5Gs. However, these two slides are not recommended for the kids.

Getting around in Waterbom Bali is very comfortable with expansive, flat paved walkways. Prams and strollers are no trouble. While your kids are having a great time at the park, you can rent a Gazebo to relax and unwind with more privacy. Exclusively for the parents who deserve pampering once in a while, Waterbom Bali also provides a 60-minute spa treatment, ending the day perfectly.

Amidst all these activities, you are bound to discover a new side to yourself which will make you feel pleased at the end of the day. The kids are bound to have a time of their lives, so be ready to receive tons of hugs from them. Every family has a story to tell, and you can create yours.
