Owner description: Combine the excitement of parachuting, the thrill of water sports and parasailing! Let the expert instructors teach you how to water-ski, wake board or ride a wave on a jet ski. A daily cruise around the private lake is a great way to enjoy a sundowner. Mini cars, Putt–Putt, trampolines, bumper boats and the Play Ground are all the exciting activities surrounding the lake. Join us for some exhilarating fun!

“A beach 500 miles from the sea...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2013

Although this year Waterworld was closed for maintenance, I have been here many times. Features a real sandy beach with a wave generating machine that creates powerful 5-foot waves, good enough for bodyboarders and surfers. Lots of smallers amenities for the young ones, large shallow pools for little ones, deeper pools for older kids and adults. Themed areas, tube rides, and Africa's highest waterslide - a scary prospect to face when you stand at the top, but a worthwile plunge into the small blue dot far below!! Great funfilled allday entertainment for the whole family and good value

“Can not match the water park in kuala Lumpur”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 31, 2013

Firstly we did not pay to enter, as we were staying at Sun City Cabanas, and as such got free entry. It was a holiday period, and as such the day trippers made the place very crowded. There are very limited things to do, and no supervision on the rides to make sure everyone gets a fair go. (my grand daughter waited 20 minutes to get a ride on the Tube slide, as everyone coming down would not hand over tubes so they could ride again and again). the wave pool almost became dangerous as there were so many trying to body surf, that they ran into everyone else in the pool.

“Waterworld”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 30, 2013

Waterworld has lots of fun things to do. It is terribly expensive though and sometimes the wait is long. The cafe and snacks are average. Service is slow during peak periods.

“Great Fun”

We had great fun here, water-tubing and the staff were humorous and helpful, and there was little waiting time as they moved us on very professionally

And a lovely meal and afternoon we spent there with our friends after a day out in the sun and just roaming around the complex.
