Location / Nearby The Waterworks

Description

Release the child within and experience New Zealand's quirkiest theme park. Voted by AA Tourism as a must-do Kiwi experience The Waterworks is a theme park with a difference. Set in 5 acres of native Coromandel Bush and just 10 minutes from Coromandel Town is an array of water powered inventions, quirky contraptions and fun to discover at every turn. Inspired by the ability to create something new out of something old our attractions are made largely from recycled materials and are powered by water. Water is used to keep time on the wooden water clock; watch out though it often works on Coromandel time. We've got water cannons to blast away on and bikes that pump H2O. Our human sized hamster wheel is an absolute hoot and our mad inventions leave people wondering "what the".As well as the 70+ attractions to look at, play on, or interact with, The Waterworks has a generous adventure playground area perfect for picnics, an onsite café, free use of BBQs and a natural swimming hole to cool off in during the hot summer months.

Great experience

Quirky little eco park full of fascinating water driven exhibits. Great fun soaking each other! On a sunny day would be amazing with waterholes on the river to swim in. A great kids play area with flying foxes and BBQ areas set up.

So much fun

This place is so much fun, I have not laughed so much in a long time, we had 2 teenagers with us and it was great to see that everything was catered to both kids and adults. We loved all the quirky waterfeatures.
We made some great family memories and had lots of fun on the swings and bikes

I did think the price of $75 for a family of 4 was a little pricey considering it was a cold winters day and late in the afternoon we couldn’t take full advantage of the park...and getting wet.
The owners did however offer a free entry the next morning if we didn’t manage to finish before dark but this wasn’t an option for us.

We would love to come back in summer and spend the day, the swimming hole looks lovely

An amazing day out

Went with grandchildren. Ages 4 and 2. They had a ball. We were there for 4 hours. Had a picnic too. Water slide was great for the kids but not effective for us adults. Swimming hole was very refreshing. Friendly reception. Great choice of ice cream. I would highly recommend this activity.

Family fun

My daughter (17) and I were staying in Whitianga and saw this place on a brochure.
The drive there was a little hairy. The road is 24km (from Whitianga) of gravel, narrow and windy road. My little Toyota coped.
What a quirky and fun little delight this was. Little kids and their parents will love it. Pack a lunch (or use the cafe) and enjoy. Get wet if you want but no need to.
Clean facilities and the most beautiful 3 legged fur baby met us at the car.

Hidden gem

What a magic weird little place this was. We (family of four - teenage kids aged 18 and 16) had great fun walking around the park, reading the info boards and trying the exhibits. Well worth a detour for an hour or two. Def fun for all ages.

Fun even in the rain

Had a lot of fun as a family with our 4 year old.
Even when it rained it was a lot of fun.

Great inventions and trickery

Fun for everyone

An amazing experience from start to finish. Easy to see why it is rated a top attraction to do in the Coromandel. I loved this and it was so refreshing on a hot day.
