A Mega Water Precinct With a ❛Zero Gravity❜ Experience is Heading our Way
- All Ages
One of NSW's favourite and biggest water parks is about to get even more thrills and spills! Jamerboo Action Park is undergoing a mega renovation and will soon be opening its brand-new Velocity Falls precinct.
Set to open in summer 2022, Velocity Falls will feature the newest and biggest rides of this calibre in Australia (and the world!), which promise an experience akin to 'zero gravity'. We can't wait!
Jamberoo Action Park's New Water Precinct
Years in the making and rumoured to be costing upwards of $7-million-dollars, Jamberoo's Velocity Falls is gearing up to compete with the likes of Wet'n'Wild on the Gold Coast. The eye-opening dual waterslide (previously named Grande Gorge Falls) is set to replace the ageing Splash Out waterslide that was built in the early 1980s and will include eight individual slides and a further two 'multi-bump' slides extending approximately 30 metres from the base to the top.
Queensland architect, Alan Griffith is behind the design of Velocity Falls and has described the new water slide as, ..."'multibump speed slides' that take off from a 'Skybox vertical launch' platform, through the gorge rock strata to the splashdown on each side of the Octokraken Racer."
What's on Offer at Velocity Falls
According to Jamberoo, "Velocity Falls is a themed, world-class experience that taps into the sights and sounds of Australiana and builds on the existing theming at NSW’s largest family-owned and operated water theme park. Volumes of water racing at speed and the experience of zero gravity are the cornerstones of the Velocity Falls precinct. All wrapped in the texture of the local rainforest and ocean creatures – only possible at Jamberoo Action Park – where the mountains meet the sea!"
We don't know about you, but the proclaimed 'zero gravity' of the new precinct has got us pretty intrigued!
Velocity Falls Opening Date
Velocity Falls was set to open in December 2021 but wet weather conditions and COVID-related problems have caused a delay and the new opening date is yet to be announced. We're promised it's sometime in summer 2022 - fingers crossed!
Visitors still keen to control the action at Jamerboo in the meantime are welcome to visit - the park is still open with all rides up and running. Visit the Jamerboo website to check their opening hours.
