Wa­ter park to make a splash in Proser­pine

Whitsunday Times - - CHILL -

AUS­TRALIA’s first por­ta­ble wa­ter theme park Water­world will be mak­ing a splash in Proser­pine on two con­sec­u­tive week­ends this month.

The park will de­but at the Proser­pine Show­ground this com­ing weekend from Oc­to­ber 18-20, with a re­peat visit planned for Oc­to­ber 25-27.

Open­ing at 10am daily, Water­world of­fers gi­ant in­flat­able pools and slides to splash and play around in.

Ticket hold­ers can try fun ac­tiv­i­ties like skirt­ing the gi­ant twin slides of the dragon pool or slip­ping through the shark’s mouth on the Water­world shark pool. The more dar­ing visi­tors can plum­met 10me­tres down the colos­sal dino slide and if that isn’t enough fun, there’s a chance to try walk­ing on wa­ter in the Water­world zorb balls.

Al­ter­na­tively, chil­dren un­der 12 can sim­ply splash around and re­lax in the mush­room pool.

Other at­trac­tions in­clude sideshow games, a so­lar cafe and ice creams.

En­try to the park is free and there are two op­tions to pur­chase tick­ets, ei­ther pay as you ride or un­lim­ited rider three-hour ses­sion wrist­bands.

Pay as you go tick­ets cost $5 per 10 min­utes.

The un­lim­ited rider wrist­bands cost $20 per ses­sion if pur­chased at the gate, or $15 if bought online. Ses­sion times are 10am-1pm, 11am-2pm, 12-3pm and 1-4pm. Ticket hold­ers are asked to ar­rive 15 min­utes prior to their ses­sion times. While cus­tomers have the op­tion of sav­ing money by buy­ing dis­counted tick­ets online, th­ese must be bought at least one day prior to at­tend­ing Water­world. Those who have pre-pur­chased tick­ets can call 0409 912 343 to check whether the park is still op­er­a­tional in the event of bad weather.
