    A $70 million water park featuring high-speed thrill rides and state-of-art water slides is to be built in Perth's north-eastern suburbs.

    In one of the most significant tourist attraction developments in WA in decades, the park will sit on 4ha as part of The Maze Fun Park in Bullsbrook.

    We drove past the maze last weekend and were stunned at the number of people there. This would be a great place for such a park.

    Seriously?? I hope they run with the recycled water! I wonder where the volume of water is going to come from in the interim? Another aquifer :blink:

    Probably Mundaring Weir....but if we all cut back on lawn-watering...we can keep Adventure World going *#)

    This pic I've seen is very far removed from admin's example. I hope this picture doesn't represent $70millon???

    that pic wattle looks like adventure world LOL
    I think its good to give adventure world a run for its money and maybe we might get a good water park.
    I love water parks

    If you read the article, it says that it will be built in stages over 10 years. That picture that Wattle showed will be stage one, expected to be finished by December this year, also that stage is expected to only use the same amount of water as a backyard swimming pool.

    Adventure World is closely monitored by the water corp.
    They recycle a lot of water around the grounds, and have lots of steps in place to reduce wastage from splashing and evaporation.

    Definitely agree with Spid that they do need to service the area with Public Transport if the park is to be successful.

    I was at the maze on Friday and you can see the works have well and truly started for this.

    The Maze seems to do pretty well already without public transport so the water park should survive. Adventure World isn't exactly conveniently located either and it does alright.

    Adventure world is great for public transport :)
    If you're coming from Mandurah you can hop off at either Cockburn, or Murdoch and hop on the bus for 10 minutes.
    If you're coming from Fremantle way you can hop on another bus at Freo which drops you directly in front of AW **)

    I always get a season pass for xmas and usually train/bus it there so I don't have to worry about parking.

    Do many teenagers go to the maze without parents?? ( I don't know what the maze even is )

    The only way I can think to get there is midland station then bus?

    Adventure World is a cut lunch and a water bag trip for anyone north of the river. For people within cooee of Joondalup and far northern suburbs, the Maze is relatively handy (down Neaves Rd).

    Should be good. I'll go to the Bullsbrook waterpark for sure! Love water slides. :D
