Bali may be filled with stretches of pristine beaches, and gorgeous spas and retreats, but that doesn’t mean that thrill seekers can’t get their kicks when visiting the beautiful island of the Gods. Voted the number one water theme park in Asia, Waterbom Bali is a spectacular oasis of high-thrill waterslides and attractions set in lush tropical gardens right in the heart of Kuta. With a fantastic range of water rides and other fabulous activities to keep even the biggest adrenaline junkie in check, Waterbom is indeed the perfect destination for the entire family to have hours of fun!
Fans of the drop should make a beeline for the notorious Climax, an exhilarating ride that has a small chamber with a trap door which opens underneath you so you bullet all the way down the near vertical slide. Also not for the weak of heart is the new and improved Smash Down 2.0, similar to the Capsule, except that you drop down the 25.9 meter slide in a matter of seconds. Don’t say we didn’t warn you!
If speed is your thrill of choice, run to the Twin Racers where you can take on opponents as you dive face first onto a mat and race on spiraling slide with a surprise drop at the end. Meanwhile, the Pipeline has riders twisting and turning down a 150-meter tube that offer panoramic views of the whole water park. Next up, rocket down Double Twist, Green Vipers, and Fast and Fierce to keep that adrenaline rush going.
Once you’re in need of a breather, you can plop yourself onto a rubber tube and float around on the calm Lazy River – just beware of splashing teens and tykes! Otherwise duck into one of the waterpark’s thatched cabanas for some dry shade and quiet time. Word of advice? You might want to book the gazebo early to make sure that they don’t fill up. Waterbom’s complete facilities also include relaxing massages and nail treatments, so you get to pamper yourself even during your downtime.
When it’s time to refuel, Waterbom Bali has plenty of choices that will satisfy even the most particular picky eater. Tuck into authentic Indonesian cuisine, gourmet hot dogs and burgers, ice cream, and more. Waterbom’s newest kitchen concept THAITALIAN even serves delicious and organic fusion snacks to fill you up after a day’s of excitement.
Before you leave, go on another round on the slides, or try your hand at Waterbom Bali’s other fun attractions. There’s the Flow Rider Double, a five foot stationary wave ride where you can choose to surf standing up or lying down on a board. If you’d rather catapult water balloons at the heads of others, then Water Blaster should be your next attraction. Otherwise get your adrenaline pumped up once again and face the Euro Bungy to get catapulted 9 meters into the sky. We even dare you to attempt a few backflips while you’re up there!
