Waterbom Bali highlights

The 'Smashdown 2.0’ was an upgrade of one of Waterbom Bali's earliest and most popular slides. You start at a height of 25.9m, enter a capsule with a trapdoor at your feet, which then releases you down a chute. You can also opt for the more thrilling 'Climax' that ups the ante, dropping you down with 2.5 G‐force of speed, and whirls you through a near-vertical dip before looping back around.

Other rides for thrill-seekers include 'Fast n' Fierce' and ‘Twin Racers’ where you can challenge your partner for a splashing race down. Some of the rides require specially designed tubes with grips to hold onto.

The unique 'Boomerang' lets you twist down a 20m-meter drop, then get swept straight up back up again, before a sensational free fall. The Flow Rider Double lets you live the dream of board riding on a 5-foot stationary wave. Surf with a partner with your choice of stand-up or lay-down board.

Casual rides such as the 'Double Twist' and 'Python' are suitable for younger visitors and those who prefer a relaxing experience. Little ones can have their fun times at 'Funtastic', a playground type of section for kids, with shallow pools and fountains.

For a truly placid ride around lush gardens, take a tube for yourself or a double tube for couples and follow the steady stream of the 'Lazy River'. Enjoy a slow-paced relaxation ride through cascading waterfalls and lush foliage.
