This is a rush! Riders shoot down a winding hydroslide in 2-person tubes, before going down a steep drop that propels them up a near-vertical wall for a moment of weightlessness before zooming back down and onto the slide’s finish.

Please note: for safety reasons you must ride 2 to a raft. For younger kids, you’ll need to be 5 years old & over 1.2 metres tall to ride. Children under 1.2m must be accompanied by an adult (over 16 years old).

With beach access, this is the perfect place for children 8 years and under to explore!

Freshwater Pool

Perch yourself on one of our sun loungers and watch the fun, drift calmly around the lazy river, or refresh yourself with a few laps. Down time has never felt this good.

The resort style access of our freshwater lap pool makes it easily accessible, and at a comfortable 28 degrees, diving in is a great refresher between our hotter thermal pools.

Surrounded by sun loungers, there are plenty of places to relax and enjoy the action. You'll see kids of all ages practice their diving, while others splash about honing their handstands.

Or get in a little exercise with our roped off lanes, great for a few laps to reawaken the body.

The lazy river is always a fun focal point. Float about blissfully or race the kids around and around, laughing as you try to beat the current.

A great way to tire the kids out!

Children's Activity Pool

With relaxed resort-style beach access, waterfalls and a few surprises, our large activity pool is incredible fun.

The kids will love the cave hidden behind the waterfall and the popular Tuatara slide.

Watch them race through the shallows as you enjoy sprawling on the grassy area or relaxing at a picnic table.

Watch out for the dumping bucket high above! A favourite game is dragging unsuspecting parents underneath it so they are soaked by the sporadic cascades of warm water… you have been warned!

The water is warm and you'll find plenty of adults relaxing in the shallows as they keep a close eye on the kids.
