Waterbom Park

Well worth the money

What we say: 4 stars

It’s a bit tedious: the lining up, entree fee payment, paying for the splash tag, getting changed, hiring a locker... But once you’re ready, the well organised, well run Waterbom is worth it all.

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 Water Bom 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 climbing all the stairs to get to the start of the slides.

Water Bom 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.
