The Big Splash ride.

Jump aboard The Big Splash ride for a nine-minute journey of discovery! You'll get a splashing good thrill at the end!

To ride the Big Splash, children must be aged five (5) or over AND be taller than 106cm. Children aged five and over, who are between 106cm and 135cm must be accompanied by an adult. The adult needs to be seated next to the child and provide supervision during the full ride.

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.
