Ride the Waves

Who would have thought that you could ride the waves in Blacktown? Our wave pool is a sensational feeling, similar to being in the ocean. It is a spectacular and realistic experience without all the seaweed and jellyfish!

The depth ranges from 0 to 1.8 metres, so you can swim out deep and feel the crash of the big waves, or just enjoy the shallow end and let the water lap around you.

So get in, get wet and ride the waves - just don't get carried out to sea!

The waves are in operation at the following times:



Monday to Friday

11 am - 5 pm every hour for 10 minutes

5.30 pm - 8.00 pm every 30 minutes for 5 minutes


9.30 am - 4.30 pm every 30 minutes for 5 minutes

Weekday school holidays 11 am - 8 pm every 30 minutes for 5 minutes
Weekend school holidays 9.30 am - 4.30 pm every 30 minutes for 5 minutes


Pool entry is $6.20 for adults and $4.60 for children. Children 4 years and under are admitted free of charge. Bring the whole family (2 adults and 3 children) and get a family pass for $21.60.

Enjoy a spa, steam, sauna and swim entry $12.30 for casual usage and $9.20 for concession.
