Waterbom Bali: Still The #1 Waterpark In Asia

 

As the Python abruptly regurgitated our stiff bodies into the iridescent blue pool, our expressions of wide-eyed jaw-gaping astonishment melted into infectious giggles. Quite possibly we had just enjoyed one of the best waterslides in the entire world, and we’d done it as a family.

I am not sure how many times we have been to Waterbom, but it never gets old. The first time would have been over a decade ago, back in 1999, and most recently in January 2015.

The Viper – an intertwining, twisting waterslide

Before this year we had visited back in 2012 when we kick-started this blog and our epic nomadic journey (you can read about here). But we were pleasantly surprised with the substantial changes in the park over the last three years, transforming from one of our favourite waterparks, to one of the best in the world (according to TripAdvisor).

So What’s New?

As I write this, 3 slides have been torn down to make room for 4 newer, faster and taller slides which will open in the first half of 2015. Say goodbye to Smash Down, Race Track and the Boogie Ride. It’s okay, I didn’t like those ones anyway, even if Josh did. Haha!

Later this year Waterbom plans to open the first Flow Rider (stationary wave pool) in Bali. Yay! Those are so much fun.

While we were in Bali we took the chance to try the new slides that have been launched since our last visit.

The PythonThis was a family favourite and is one of the widest waterslides in the world (with segments up to 6 metres in diameter). 3 to 4 people ride in a circular tube through a twisting, funky yellow-and-pink slide to splash down in a shallow pool. Lots of screams of delight on this one.

Green VipersOne of Waterbom’s newer rides, this slide utilises the latest generation fiberglass materials. The Green Vipers start at a lofty 19.62 metres in the air with an ultra fast and silky smooth ride.
