The last day of my visit to Perth would include a visit to the area's largest theme park, Adventure World, located in Briba Lake. Adventure World was essentially a water park with a bunch of rides surrounding the different water park attractions. Some of the rides open on a delay from the park gates opening, but most of the major attractions and the water park rides are open with the park gates.
One of the best aspects of this park I found was the way they provide a lot of areas of shade. If there is one thing that I think a lot of American Water Parks suffer from, it's having a lot of concrete with little to no shade, causing a lot of burning to the feet. Adventure World does have some concrete paths, however they do also have a lot of open green space and shady structures and trees to make for a more comfortable setting when taking a break from the attractions in the park.
In terms of roller coasters, the main attraction here is Abyss. A custom Gerstlauer Euro Fighter that is among the tallest attractions in the park. The ride has a surprise in the building for the beginning of the ride, and a few moments of airtime.
The ride does also feature some themeing to add to the ride. The druids appear all over the place around the coaster, and the building also features some decor that fits with it as well, giving the ride a creepy feeling as you get closer to the loading station.
Also in the thrill ride department is a Zamperla Power Surge as well as a bizarre Huss Launch Tower ride. It would send you upward for two different launches as opposed to the typical launch tower.
There is also a children's area which featuring several rides and a dragon theme.
One of the rides in this area is the other coaster in the park and another shameless credit, Dragon Express. This coaster is the Zamperla family coaster that has the same kind of layout as the SpongeBob coaster at Sea World.
While Adventure Land has a variety of rides, the main draw is the water slide selection in the water park section. Several of the slides take advantage of the terrain of the park as they travel down the hillside.
Perhaps the biggest water park attraction at the park is Kraken. One of the coolest aspects of this slide is the themeing. There are tentacles of the kraken wrapping around the slide. They also took an old swinging ship ride and reused it for a ship being overtaken by the beast!
The slide itself is an extended tornado slide that had a fun layout that takes advantage of the hillside, and has the tornado portion of the slide in the middle and then more distance to it afterward, making it one of the longest Tornado slides I have ever ridden.
In the end, I was surprised by the park as it had some great rides and slides, and would gladly make a return visit next time I am in Perth!
Up next, it's time for the last city of this Australia trip, Melbourne!
