Exhilarating experience

The place and slides will exhilarate you. I tried all the slides and they take you out of your comfort zone. Awesome for family escapades.

This is a must go. You can't go to Durban and not visit this place. It caters for all, adrenaline junkies like me or just your normal play in water person.

The rides are awesome. This is definitely the perfect place to catch a tan in Winter. Perfect for kids!

We purchased the combo that allows access to both the aquarium and water-park. The water was cold but the little one loved it. Lovely slides to keep one entertained. Would like the personnel to be more strict. People cut lines and some rude behavior by others are tolerated that can make it uncomfortable.

The rides are AWESOME!!!! The only thing that puts me off, is the long queues for the rides and the fact that you can't take your own food in.

My kids loved the wet and wild, there's slides there for thrill seekers and easy ones of course for those who are not into action, my kids would spend the whole day on those slides, you see the value for your money here, this you cannot miss!

I took our young family on sunny winters day to Ushaka. We took the combo option and hoped the weather would warm up so we could enjoy the rides. We spent the morning at the Aquarium and watched a fantastic dolphin and seal show and watched the rays being fed. The place is well kept and the staff were attentive... More

A variety of water activities from the lazy river to the adrenaline rush from the Kamikazi Slide. A relatively safe environment (water sports can result in bumps and grazes!) for the family to enjoy Durban's excellent climate all year round. You can easily spend a full day at the park.

Plenty of super tubes and slides with different lengths and layouts. From beginner to extreme. From chilling to adrenaline.
