Rides And Attractions At Water World Ocean Park

The attractions at Water World Ocean Park are sure to be a hit with all the family! If you’re wondering exactly which rides are suitable for your kids, check out the handy filter tool on the website. You can sort by age and heights!

Indoor Attractions

One of the best things about the water park is that there are a lot of slides and water play areas indoors. No need to worry about the searing sun, winter chill or sudden onset of thunderstorms! Inside you’ll find the indoor wave pool, Horizon Cove, perfect for a swim or splash, Lazy Cruise for a leisurely float and Surf Strikers where you can try and catch a wave without hitting the ocean. In the slide department, there’s also the raft rides Cavern Chase and Vortex, freefall experience Skyhigh Falls and three speed slides.

Water Park Attractions For Toddlers And Young Kids

Should you visit the park with little kids? We think so! Kids under 6 years old can go to:

Whisker’s Splash – a multi-level play structure that includes slides, splash zones, a maze and a toddler’s pool.
Lazy Cruise and Rip Tide – indoor and outdoor lazy rivers. Of course they’ll need parents to go with them!
Big Wave Bay and Horizon Cove – the indoor and outdoor wave pools.

Sassy Mama tips: Slippery floors and boisterous, excited big kids and toddlers probably don’t mix. While we’re all looking for something new and fun to do with the little, in this case I’d be careful about choosing my time. Go early, and avoid weekends, public and school holidays when there are likely to be crowds.

Looking at Whisker’s Splash, I can imagine my three year old having an absolute blast. It is strategically tucked away from the big kids rides BUT I do still worry about crowds and over excited kids even when you put this age altogether.

The Lazy Cruise, Rip Tide and wave pools look like lots of fun, but there will be people of all ages about, so you will just have to closely manage your kids.

Family Facilities At Water World Ocean Park

The lockers and changing rooms are located on the ground floor to your left after you enter. They are quite a way from the park’s attractions so use these to store your valuables and dry clothes, but pack a light bag to bring any essentials that you want in the park.


We definitely advise you to book your locker in advance when booking your tickets. While they can be arranged on the day, there are limited numbers and you don’t want to miss out.

There are three sizes:
Regular – best for 1-2 people, sized 41cm/28cm/40cm – $120
Family – best for 3-4 people, sized 55cm/28cm/40cm – $200
Jumbo – best for groups of up to 6, sized 83cm/38cm/40cm – $280

You operate the lockers with a QR code on a waterproof wristband. Scan the code, enter a pin and your locker will open. Be careful – they do shut quickly and it is awkward to reopen when it’s busy!

Sassy Mama Tips For Visiting Water World Ocean Park With Kids

Do You Need To Wear A Mask On The Waterslides?

This was one of our first questions! The answer is no, but you should wear them as you walk to and from the slides. It was suggested to carry a waterproof pouch for storage.

What To Wear To Water World?

If you’ve got kids who plan on making the most of the speed slides, make sure they don’t have any loose objects. It’s also advisable to pack a rash shirt or t-shirt to wear over their swimsuits as any clips or fastenings that could scratch the slides or cause injury are not permitted.

We saw a lot of people wearing lightweight swim shoes. These are a good idea as with all that water and kids, rushing around the floors is sure to get a bit slippery.

What If You Forget Anything?

Essentials like goggles, swim nappies or waterproof pouches can be purchased both at the Treasure Reef gift store at the entrance, and the Splash Shop next to Whisker’s Splash.
