Amazingly Fun Water Slides In Sydney
By: the ellaslist team
Waterslides combine the best of the playground with the best of Summer fun! Instead of a boring old pool, why not take your kiddies to one of these thrill-seeking super slides where they can have fun AND cool down this Summer?
Here are our top picks for Sydney waterslides, if you dare:
1. Splasher's Water Playground
Inside the Sydney Olympic Park Aquatic Centre, this epic water playland is big on the splashes and thrills. As well as tipping buckets, a current pool, water fountains, and climbing structures, there are 3 water slides for young ones and a much bigger, enclosed one with a height requirement of 140cm.

2. Waterworld Central
Waterslides are cool, but inflatable waterslides are even cooler! Returning to the Entertainment Quarter Showring at Moore Park this Summer (December 28, 2018 - January 28, 2019) you and the kids can bob around in giant inflatable pools, bounce around under the palm trees the Shark World and dare each other to ride the giant twin slides of the Dragon Pool. For the big kids, take the Dino Challenge and plummet down the long drop of our Colossal Dino Slide! Entry is free for all so if you don't want to swim you can be a spectator while your kids splash around. Find out more here.
3. Jamberoo Action Park
This season the water park is focusing on three big tube rides. For the thrillseekers only, you just never know which way you will be sitting, twisting and turning through the ride – each experience is different. The Perfect Storm, Funnel Web and The Taipan - yes, they are all as crazy as they sound. For the little ones there is still plenty of action, they'll especially love splashing about in Mushroom Pool. In fact there are several mini-water slides for every kid's thrill-seeking needs and an awesome aquatic cubby house. Find out more here.
