Family day

An awesome way to spend a summers day with the family. Out in the sun, water fun, great slides - with other things to do too. Highly recommend for family fun!

WARNING... DO NOT GO ON A WEEKEND! Crazy busy. Lines up and down the road when we arrived at 10.30... a tip is to buy tickets online as we went straight into the gift shop and they gave us wrist bands to go in. Everyone brought their own tents and gazebos there was hardly any place to sit. We found... More

Our two children had a great day here. One forgot her swimsuit but we were able to rent them here. They have towels as well. Fun day for the family.

It was my mum and myself taking her granddaughter/my niece to Splash Planet. I don't remember the Fantasyland days (I think I only went once) but mum does, and I think she was dubious about the change to Splash Planet but we all went away happy. We were a bit confused at first, really needed a map even though the... More

I took two boys (7 and 4) to Splash Planet and we had a great time. There's a good variety of water rides to suit most ages and levels of confidence. We went near the end of the season which seems to be a better time to go - less crowded, and little or no waiting for the water slides.... More

Splash Planet is always on list of things to do every summer - its a great place for all ages and relatively well priced (as a local we do get a cheaper rate). We always take visitors and spend the whole day there. Take a picnic, your togs (swimmers) and a rug and you can spend a whole day being... More

We enjoyed Splash Planet, but should have come in the summer as coming at the end of March just isn't warm enough. The good thing though, was we didn't have to wait in lines for long for the wet rides. In the summer it would be more enjoyable temperature wise. There is plenty to do here, entry fees are very...

A full days fun for the whole family with both the wet and dry side of the park. I think its a fantastic park for NZ and well priced. I have heard too many people compare it to wet and wild etc in Australia and that they were let down, but come on guys we don't live in Ozi and... More

We arrived around 10.30am and the carpark was close to full but lucky it was a huge parking lot so there were a few spaces left. After paying a reasonable entry fee (three adults and two children) we were greeted with loud music, people everywhere, and lots of activities for all ages. For 8 years and over do the castle...

The water was cold and facilities looked very tired! Having to pay each time I needed to get into the locker was ridiculous. Only plus was not having to queue for long for any of the rides. Not sure if I would return.
