The great Xscape
JUMP in and make a splash this summer at Australia’s first pop-up water park, Xscape. Town of Victoria Park chief executive Anthony Vuleta says the park is the first step to more entertainment on the Burswood peninsula.
IT’S Australia’s first ever pop-up water park and Town of Victoria Park chief executive Anthony Vuleta believed it could turn Burswood peninsula into WA’s biggest entertainment hub.
Splashing into action this month at Belmont Park Racecourse, Xscape at the City introduced Perth to a thrilling combination of waterslides, rides and other activities for all ages.
Town of Victoria Park already boasts a competitive entertainment scene with Crown Complex, upcoming new Perth Stadium and racecourse, but Mr Vuleta said the water park could make the area even more appealing to visitors.
“We want to pitch this area as the entertainment capital of WA; this water park just adds to that whole perspective,” Mr Vuleta said.
“The whole peninsula would represent the place to come next year to be entertained, have fun and just enjoy it.
“People can come to look at the stadium, all the things the casino has to offer, as well as the Turf Club here for racing events.”
Xscape at the City, featuring a 23m-tall slide, water play pools and more dry activities is forecast to be one of the most visited tourist attractions in Perth this summer.
The temporary inflatable water park and slide will be open until April 2016.
