Sun City’s Valley of Waves waterpark is a legendary hub for all kinds of water fun. This is a great activity for a family holiday as it accommodates the daring spirit for adventurers of all ages. There is a designated children’s area to keep parents’ minds at ease and lifeguards are on duty daily. Day visitors are also attracted to the Valley of Waves, as it encompasses a full day of exciting activity.
You enter the waterpark from the Entertainment Centre and across the Bridge of Time. This bridge erupts every hour in an exciting, theatrical display of vibrations, rumbling volcanic sounds and smoke. The main attraction at the Valley of Waves is the Roaring Lagoon – a 6,500 square metre wave pool with hydraulic mechanisms that generate waves of up to 1.8 metres every 90 seconds. The Roaring Lagoon is bordered by a beach with sea sand and palm trees.
There’s something at the Valley of Waves for the more daring too. The famous Temple of Courage promises an exhilarating adrenalin rush with a 17-metre drop down a 70-metre slide. The almost vertical slide takes riders hurtling under a bridge and splashing into a small pool. There are also two body slides – the Tarantula and the Scorpion – and two tube rides – the Viper and the Mamba.
The Lazy River offers a gentle, continuous tube ride around an island, while the Royal Bath swimming pool beside the Amphitheatre offers a place to soak up some warm sun rays, cocktail in hand. There are a number of walkways through tropical forests surrounding the Valley of Waves. Here you can explore and discover the Spider Web Sway Bridge, hidden cave waterfalls, rare plant varieties and more.
