The Big Splash will be closed for annual maintenance from July 28th and re-opening on August 11th. Apologies for any inconvenience that this may cause.
The Big Splash isn’t just the adrenalin rush at the end as you accelerate towards the water creating a spectacular and exhilarating plume of water; it is a 9 minute journey through time as we explore the ecological evolution of New Zealand. State of the art animatronics and projection technology bring to life dinosaurs, Moa, the incredible Haast Eagle, the arrival of humans and so much more.
Take your seat in one of the boats and get ready to be thrilled.
Open from 10am to 4.30pm you must be 80cm if accompanied by a parent or 110cm if unaccompanied to ride The Big Splash. If you'd like to score the front seat you'll need to be at least 130cm tall. The cost of The Big Splash ride is included in your entry ticket and you can ride it as many times as you wish, although you will have to rejoin the queue at the end of each ride.
