Bubble Pool

More than just a Jacuzzi. A real parent favourite at AquaZone. Sit back and relax into a world of luxury as the powerful jacuzzi pool jets take your stress away whilst the kids play on the slides and other attractions. It’s not just the kids who get to enjoy themselves at AquaZone.

Wave Pool

The Wave Pool is one of the most anticipated and exciting attractions at AquaZone. See the swell of the waves start in the deep end of the pool and form as the come towards you and lift you up or try and burst through them.

 

Just like in the ocean, as they get closer to the shore they reduce in size as they gradually wash up on the centre shoreline. For safety, the waves will stop periodically to let you take a break and leave the pool if you wish.
