What is there to do?

Are you up for the challenge of taking on over 40 water attractions AND an Adventure Park!?  Yes?  are you sure!?  Then Big Kahuna’s will certainly let you take on that challenge with their rides, slides, wave pools, rivers, and an adrenaline packed adventure park.

You can start small on the Cobra Twister, a lazy but fun river slide for those enjoying the slow lane.  Or you jump straight into Jumanji - which takes you over 70 feet of pure adrenaline free-falling.  Doesn’t sound too scary?  What if we told you it was in total darkness?  There are rides for the budding surfers out there, or those who want to adventure into sloping rapids and lush landscape.

For those a bit too young for the crazy fun of the rides, there is a kiddie area where enchanting abandoned ships and friendly floating crocodiles will soak them silly.

The adventure park is a great excuse to continue the fun whilst drying off.  Only here can you feel like you’re strapped to an 160 foot propellor 85 feet above the ground and still want to go back for more. 

If you are celebrating your special milestone, Big Kahuna’s host fun birthday packages that suit a minimum of 10 guests, and gives you access to the whole park.  

Park opening hours vary, so be sure to check their website for specific days you wish to visit, and if you find you want to keep going back for more, Season Passes are available which will entitle you to unlimited visits for one whole summer!

Finally, five of their rides have height restrictions, so keep an eye out for these to avoid disappointment if you have queued!  The shortest restriction is the Raging Rhino River, where only those over 44 inches can ride.
