Waterbom Park

Well worth the money

What we say: 4 stars

It’s a bit tedious, the kicking off portion of organising yourself at Waterbom Park: the lining up, the entrance fee payment (phone lines were down for Amex when we were there), the paying for the splash tag (a barcode-marked bracelet that lets you pay for stuff without your wallet), the getting changed, the hiring a locker… But once you’re ready, the well organised, well run Waterbom, set in the heart of the very popular Kuta Beach district, is worth it all.

Waterbom Bali

It’s not exactly a traditional Balinese activity, this business of climbing up a gazillion stairs to jump on a plastic water slide that takes your breath away as you slither down into lightly chlorinated water, but it’s a lot of fun and Waterbom aces what it aims to do.

There are slides suited for parents carrying their two-year-olds and up, through to the petrifying Climax, which is a little like getting hanged but without the noose. As an added bonus, your legs will get a super workout from all the stair climbing.

Waterbom searches bags upon entry to make sure you’re not taking your own food in, which may be a pain for people on strict diets, though stuff for really little kids will probably be let through. At least the offerings on the inside are decent enough: fast food, yes, but reasonably healthy with a good range of options, from Indonesian nasi goreng through to a very yummy range of pizzas and pastas.
