Raging Waters Sydney
Time Out says
Cool off at the wettest and wildest park in Sydney with a new name and summer-fresh rides
It gets hot in Prospect: often three or four degrees hotter than the coastal areas of Sydney. That makes the newly rebadged Raging Waters Sydney (formerly Wet ‘N’ Wild), with its giant, Curaçao blue, sand-lined wave pool and complex, curving, canopy of rainbow waterslides a pretty attractive proposition.
For those who’d rather not wait in line for the 360Rush, a set of six storey high twin slides that each loop a full 360 degrees, cooler days may prove to be a gift. Come in a wetsuit, and you can avoid the chill and the crowds.
When it does heat up, the eerie sprays of water that feature in the dinosaur attraction will provide some respite. The animatronic prehistoric creatures have been placed around a gently flowing lazy river (filled with floating rubber donuts). If you’re looking for faster thrills, hold onto your cozzies and let 20,000 litres of water shoot you through the tunnel slide at the Riptide.
There are more than 30 rides to explore, but the latest slippery adventure at the park is the Whirlwind. It’s a 206-metre journey through enclosed passageways, open spirals and zippy drops that’ll have you flying up to 25km per hour.
