Busselton Beach

Member Rating 4 out of 5 by lo7la on September 16, 2005

The day we made our way back up to Perth from Margaret River was filled with sunshine and we were in search of beaches to play in. A random poke at the map sent us in the direction of Busselton, a town mostly known for it's long jetty. Following signs for the beach we quickly rolled though the small town to discover what would become the highlight of our day. Upon reaching the beach we spotted the 12meter high waterslide within a kid's amusment park on the right side of the beach near the jetty.

An hour of unlimited waterslide fun cost us $10 dollars and was worth every penny. Perhaps it was because it was Easter or the end of the season or because the sun kept dipping behind clouds, but whatever the reason, we shared the slide with only five other kids.

While there a minium age limit there is no maxium hight or age limit. So if you have kids you are able to enjoy the slide with them. And because the small park is regulated by coloured wrist bands you are free to wait for them at the bottom of the slide.

The whole ride takes about 30 seconds. My partner and I took turns going first so that we could laugh at the other spashing down.

You are provided with a foam mat to sit on and an employee regulates when it's safe to go. The hour long time slots start on the hour. They have bathrooms for you to chance in and are willing to your personals behind the front desk. At the time we went, the park was up for sale. Hopefully they haven't closed, and whoever purchased it decided to keep the slide. It's good, clean fun for all ages.
