Photo TR: Funfields Australia January 2018

Postby mrtickles » Sat Jan 20, 2018 4:39 am

On a 42 degree or 107 fahrenheit day there was nothing better to do than hit a water park about 40 minutes outside my home city of Melbourne. Funfields theme park is a medium sized park with some record breaking water slides, some classic rides and more.
The crowds were not too bad so plenty of rides for me to keep cool on such a hot day.
Enjoy the photos!

First ride of the day was Typhoon, a world record breaking (longest) Cannonball waterslide

Some classic body tube water slides with Blackout being in total darkness

Alpine toboggan slide at 700 meters or 2296 feet long, is a fun alternative if the lines are busy on the water slides

Also while your dry why not try the go karts

Walking around the park I found the Kraken racer, a 4 lane racing waterslide
IMG_9894.jpg
Another world record holder for being the longest Kraken racer. Some fun twists and drops at the start before racing to the end to get the 1st place.

Easily the best ride in the park, Gravity Wave is a Proslide Wave water slide.
IMG_9925.jpg
Another world record holder being the world's biggest, longest and tallest Wave.

Absoluetly loved this, intense speed through the coil then free falling up into the wave
IMG_9932.jpg
IMG_9920.jpg
Lost count of how many times I went on Gravity Wave!
IMG_9910.jpg
Funfields also has a children's water play area, a classic pirate ship and this surprise of the day, Voodoo
IMG_9944.jpg
Australia's only full looping pendulum ride to a height of 18 metres or 59 feet
IMG_9940.jpg
Voodoo was actually intense for it's small size, small parks should get one of these!

Great trip report!

The park's mix of slides and dry rides definitely looks unique. Those inverting frisbees are awesome.

Awesome photos! I really like how the slides use that hill that seems to surround the park. Great use of terrain.

I like how the park isn't just one big mass of concrete. The alpine slide is a plus, too.
