And the winner is.....

Conical Thrill!

Conical Thrill has beaten Hanmer Halfpipe and Cloud Rider to win the naming rights to our new aquatic thrill ride.

Believe it or not, eight people suggested Conical Thrill in our public competition - an annual swim pass will be on its way to each of them very soon.

Thanks to all of you who entered the competition or voted for your favourite.

It is great to have this critical issue sorted. Now our team is focused on the next most pressing issue facing New Zealand tourism ... who gets the first ride when Conical Thrill opens in November.

Bring it on!

We have officially begun building our new 13.5 metre high aquatic thrill ride!

We are yet to name the slide, which will attach to our existing hydroslide tower above the SuperBowl flume, but it will be a rush.

Riders will shoot down a winding hydroslide in 2-person tubes, before going down a steep drop that will shoot them up a near-vertical wall for a moment of weightlessness, before they zoom back down and onto the slide’s finish.

The slide will sit next to the SuperBowl, where the AquaPlay area is at the moment.

Rest assured that while we’ll be saying goodbye to our current AquaPlay area, we are working on plans for a new and improved area for the little ones. All will be unveiled soon.

Keep an eye on this page for updates on any closures to areas whilst these new attractions are in development.
