Holidaymakers are adding BIG4 Gold Coast Holiday Park to their theme park itinerary, following the launch of their mammoth on-site Water Park.
With 317-metres of water slide tubing, and 40 interactive play features, the on-site attraction is the highest play structure found in a caravan park in the Southern Hemisphere.
In fact, glimpses of nearby Warner Bros. Movie World and the Gold Coast hinterlands are visible from its peak.
The three-tier Water Park—suitable for all ages—is open exclusively to park patrons, sparking a spike in bookings since its opening in February this year.
“Even locals are booking in to stay at the holiday park to use the Water Park,” a park spokesperson explained.
“We have 200 campsites and en-suite sites. Last weekend we were fully booked—it’s a huge response.”
THE WATER PARK AT BIG4 GOLD COAST HOLIDAY PARK
Water Park highlights include a multilane body slide, four aquatube slides and a gigantic tipping bucket. Plus smaller slides on the bottom tier for younger kids.
The water park’s design ensures everyone can enjoy the space safely and close to a large, undercover shaded area with deck-chair seating.
“On the top-tier rides, the minimum height is 1.2 metres to ride. And at least 1 metre in height for the second-tier slides,” the spokesperson explained.
A FESTIVE VIBE
The Water Park is one of many attractions set upon the sprawling grounds at the BIG4 Gold Coast Holiday Park.
“We have a lot of room to roam and run as we are on 32 acres. And we do have our own in park activities.”
Indeed, the Water Park’s operating hours dovetail nicely with the park’s program.
“At the moment, every Friday and Saturday night [following the park’s sundown closure] we have live entertainment near the pool, another really lovely space.
“We also have activities for the kids most days. Including a full-on kids club schedule during the school holidays starting from 8.30am to 3.30pm each day,” the spokesperson explained.
A GOLD COAST BOON
According to BIG4 Gold Coast Holiday Park owner Norton Whitmont, guests are hungry for the locally-built in-park attraction.
“Our guests want more than high-quality self-contained accommodation,” says Norton.
“They are seeking an experience that is exciting, memorable, and affordable, which also comes with photo opportunities
and ‘bragging rights,” he says.
