The Big Wedgie

Is water play is right up your alley, you won’t want to miss ‘The Big Wedgie’ presented by 102.9 Hot Tomato. Imagine giant inflatable water slides ready and waiting for you and your family every day over the school holidays at the Broadwater Parkland on Marine Parade in Labrador. So what’s so special about these slides?

There are four for you to experience. First is ‘The Big Wedgie’ which is the world’s largest and most exhilarating inflatable water slide, over 18 metres tall and 82 metres long and with a heart stopping 55 degree slide slope.

Next up is ‘The Big Chucka’ which is the ultimate for adrenaline junkies, with a terrifying 80 degree slide that hurtles you up to 9m into the air and then catches you on a big inflatable landing pad. Ever wished you could fly? This gets you pretty close.

Third in line is the ‘Just Right Wedgie’ that’s just perfect for kids 3 years old and up, with just the right amount of speed and fun for kids to enjoy. Lastly there’s ‘The Little Wedgie’ which is a miniature version of ‘The Big Wedgie’ and is made to suit little kids so they can safely slide and have fun too!

The slides are open from 9am to 5pm daily. There are a variety of ticket options from just one slide, multiple slides, 20 or 60 minute passes. If you’re not sure which option to choose, you can grab a Flexi-Pass which gets you either 7 slides on The Big Wedgie, 60 minutes on the Just Right Wedgie, or 60 minutes of The Little Wedgie. You can decide which option suits you better once you get there and check out the slides in person.
