Splash Zone set to open for the summer

SPLASH Zone at the Gladstone Aquatic Centre will open for the summer season on Saturday.

There will be a special opening day celebration, with entry costing $5 per family or $2 per person.

There also will be a sausage sizzle, and information about learn to swim lessons.

Splash Zone is a $2.5 million water park that features a big tipper bucket.

The six-metre high structure can fill with 500 litres of water in nine seconds, before dumping the bucket-load on eager children below.

The Big Tipper Bucket area also features two water slides.

Water jets, cannons, sprays and bubblers and a toddler's pool are also part of the water play area.

Splash Zone will be open from 9am to 5pm.
