How do I book?
ALL bookings are made online through our website. After you book, please complete the Waiver that is emailed to you. You will not be allowed to participate in the Aqua Park activity if your waiver has not been completed BEFORE your arrival to the park.
Participants can arrive up to 1 hour before the activity start time and they can stay for up to 1 hour after the activity has finished (3 hours). You must arrive at least 45 minutes prior to the activity time. If you wish to stay for the day, then you need to book the Aqua Park + Day Pass Package (this package can be viewed from the booking system and more activities are included).
Why is the arrival time 45 minutes prior to the activity?
All participants need to allow time to check-in, obtain parking permit, park the car, organise themselves (use toilets etc). 20 minutes before your start time you will be brought down to the lower Aqua Park level where you will put your clothes, towels, shoes etc into provided baskets (your swimwear should already be on). You will be given a wetsuit, buoyancy aid and helmet (this requires time to get the right fit). A safety brief will be given before everyone swims out to the Aqua Park.
What does the safety briefing entail?
Participants will watch a safety video, and the instructors will ensure that all participants know the Aqua Park Rules – what to do and what not to do!
Do I need to wear a helmet and buoyancy aid?
On the Aqua Park everyone must wear a buoyancy aid and helmet at ALL times.
Do I need to wear a wetsuit?
Yes, shorty wetsuits are provided, or you can bring your own. If you are wearing one of our wetsuits, then you must wear swimwear under the wetsuit.
What should I bring?
Towel, swimwear (please have swimwear on under your clothes), prescription goggles if needed. You can wear your own wetsuit if you prefer.
Where can I put my belongings while on the Aqua Park?
Please leave all valuables at home, or in your car. We have baskets for you to store your clothes, shoes, towels etc.
Can I wear jewellery/watch on the Aqua Park?
No, all jewellery/watches/etc must be removed before you enter the park, including all removable earrings. If you have recently had a piercing, then this needs to be covered with tape.
Can I wear my spectacles/glasses?
No, you cannot wear your glasses on the Aqua Park. Prescription goggles are a good alternative.

Does the Aqua Park have a less challenging area?
