Where is Waterbom Park Bali?
Water bom park is located in Kuta, Bali, Indonesia and is close to shops, restaurants and hotels of Kuta and Tuban. It is directly across from Discovery Mall and easy to get a taxi to.
Waterbom Bali Map
This Waterbom park map is from our visit in September 2016.
Waterbom Bali Opening Hours
Waterbom Kuta is open from 9am to 6pm everyday including Christmas Day. The only exception is Nyepi Day (Day of Silence) where the park and the whole island is shutdown with nothing open not even the airport. This date changes each year but is usually in March and for 2018 is the 17th of March.
Waterbom Bali Discount Tickets
If you love to save money then the best place to find cheap Waterbom tickets online is either through Waterbom website or Groupon often have deals. We recently researched to find tickets for our visit in November and wanted to find the cheapest place to buy Waterbom park tickets.
I would highly recommend pre booking tickets as the queue for the pre purchase counter is always a lot shorter. We haven’t ever purchased the VIP pass and I’m not sure if it’s worth the extra cash.
Below is the sites that I researched on 12th December 2017 for the best Waterbom Bali price for our family. A Waterbom family pass consists of 2 adults and 2 children aged 2 to 11 years. Remember that if you have infants under 2 years they have free entry.
Waterbom Park Family Pass Prices
- Groupon $135 Aud
- Waterbom Bali Site $135 AUD
- Klook $141 AUD
- Govoyagin $144.88 AUD
Waterbom Bali Tickets at the gate
It is easy to buy tickets at the gate when you arrive, sometimes there is a line up but it usually moves pretty quickly. Occasionally in peak times they do close the gates if the park is at capacity so during peak times it is worth arriving early. Kids aged under 2 are free into the park and 2-11 years are classed as children when buying tickets. You can find tickets here direct with Waterbom.
Funtastic Kidzone at Waterbom
The kids area is fantastic at Waterbom! Lot’s of fun things for the younger kids to explore and have a fun day out. The slides are perfect for once the kids are walking and be sure to take a nanny to run around after the kids! They can gain entry at the local price, so be sure not to purchase them an adult ticket until you arrive. This can be done at the pre purchase counter if you have booked your family Waterbom tickets prior to arrival and are needing to pick them up.
Hire a Gazebo Waterbom, Bali
A visit to Waterbom water park with the kids can be made even better when you hire a gazebo. This is a great way to settle in for the day and have all your stuff in the one spot. Each gazebo comes with a safe so you may not need to hire one of the Waterbom lockers. We have used a few different sized gazebos over our last few visits and in different spots. Our biggest tip would be to get there at or before 9am if you want to guarantee one of the Waterbom park cabanas near the kids zone. These do go quickly!
To book these gazebos, you pay at the entrance and then head straight to the counter in the kid zone to be allocated one. Even if you pre-purchased Waterbom park gazebo hire through their website, you can’t actually choose exactly which gazebo you will have. For any other gazebos in the park, you head to the counter in the locker area near the entrance. Please note that the rates listed below were current in September 2017 and may change.
Private Family Gazebo
On our 2015 extended family holiday we hired this huge gazebo as there was 13 of us. We had number 18 which is the one located near the kids zone and the price included a drink (soft drink or water) for 6 people and 6 towels. It was really private and had plenty of space for all of us including a safe and lounge chairs to lay on.
Price: IDR 1,000,00 with a IDR 75,000 deposit and recommended capacity 12 people.
In 2013 we were lucky enough to get number 22 gazebo, the family gazebo near the kids zone. These go very quickly and was perfect for 2 families.
Price: IDR 250,000 with a IDR 75,000 deposit and recommended capacity 8 people.
Our last trip in 2016 we hired number 16 gazebo as all the gazebos near the kids zone were gone when we arrived at 9:20am. I actually really liked this spot as it was quiet but close to the kids zone but without the screaming kids! I also managed to pick up the WIFI from the cafe nearby and the size was perfect for our family of 4 with out nanny Kadek.
Price: IDR 200,000 with a IDR 75,000 deposit and recommended capacity 6 people.
Waterbom Bali Lockers
The lockers are a great way to keep all your gear together securely and are located in different areas around the park. The cashless wristband that you purchase at the entrance allows you easy access to the lockers.
Regular Locker: IDR 25,000 with a IDR 30,000 deposit
Family Locker: IDR 35,000 with a IDR 30,000 deposit
Waterbom Bali Towels
Towels can be hired which is perfect if you don’t want to lug a whole lot of wet towels home.
IDR 10,000 with a IDR 62,000 deposit
Waterbom Bali Rides
Waterbom park tickets allow you to ride as many water slides as you can! If you are like me and aren’t a huge daredevil but enjoy a swim, then the main pool is a great spot. We tend to go for a swim earlier in the day as the pool bar can get a bit rowdy after lunch!
Waterbom Bali Lazy River
Perfect with the kids, the lazy river is my go to ‘ride’ now that I can’t do the bigger slides! Easy and relaxing, the whole family can enjoy it.
The slides located near the Funtastic kids area are perfect for the younger kids and Mum’s and Dad’s can go down with the younger ones too. Our kids loved this area and is a great spot for the under 4 yrs age.
Using a mat you head down racing head first! Charlotte loved this with Jed last trip as she was above 110cms tall.
Smashdown Waterbom Bali
The Waterbom Bali Smashdown is an extreme ride and not for the faint hearted!! You need to be 122cms to attempt this one.
Fast N Fierce
This one is all about speed and beating your friend down to the bottom. 120cm tall is the go on this one.
Lots of fun on a tube and best when you go with a friend, you will need to be 120cm to give this one a go.
Waterbom Bali Python
The Python Waterbom Bali is a fun ride that can take up to 4 people in a raft. Charlotte, Jed and I had a go of this in 2015 and I got told off from Charlotte, at age 4 yrs, that I was screaming too much!! The kids need to be 100cm to give this one a go with Mum and Dad.
Fun with a friend, this tube ride is great for all ages but you do need to be 122cms tall to give it a go.
Boomerang Waterbom Bali
Ok so I was brave enough to try this last trip, my face says it all! Need to be 122cms tall to try this extreme one out.
The start of this one is why I probably haven’t tried it yet! Extreme and you need to be 122cms to have a try.
I still remember Charlotte coming back to our gazebo when she was 4 yrs saying ‘Berta and I just went down the big green one!’ It goes quick but kids above 100cms can give the open green viper a go.
Climax Waterbom Bali
The Waterbom Climax is one of the scariest rides and no I haven’t tried it! Hubby did on a trip in 2013 and said it was fun. You need to be 120cms for this one.
Located next to the Climax is one for the smaller daredevils as you can ride this one at 100cms tall. Again is extreme!!
Flowrider Waterbom Bali
The Waterbom Flowrider looked like a lot of fun but I enjoyed a Bintang instead while watching everyone have a go! You need to be 130cms to give this a go and will cost extra as not included in the Waterbom park prices. You can buy either 1/2 hr or 1 hr long sessions and opens from 10am-5pm.
Launching water balloons is a lot of fun and you can pay to do just that! Kids under 6 need an adult to supervise them and you need to purchase the water balloons.
Eurobungy Waterbom Bali
Kids were having a lot of fun on the Euro Bungy but the cost is not included in the Waterbom Bali ticket price. Charlotte wasn’t keen last trip when she was 5 years but Mason would have loved it but we didn’t know if we would get him off! Max weight is 80kgs to have a go.
Waterbom Bali Food Options
The food options are great at Waterbom! We usually just take in a few snacks for the kids and water bottles. We find the food to be reasonably priced and something for everyone available.
Food Court Wantilan
The food court has a huge range of different food and where we ordered lunch from last time. Was yummy and they delivered it to our gazebo.
Cafe Bali Banana
Located near the kids zone is a great cafe with sandwiches, drinks and cakes. They also have free WIFI at this cafe.
Resto The Shack
Bar The Pool Bar
The main pool is where the teenagers and drinkers hang out so after lunch can get a bit more rowdy.
I had a bintang and snack while I watched the Flow Rider and it was good Thai and Italian food.
I do love a good coffee and the latte I had from Cafe Illy was good. Nothing to rave about but still drinkable!
Food Vendors including churros, popcorn and icecream
Waterbom Bali WIFI
WIFI isn’t available throughout the whole Kuta water park but at 3 of the cafes. You just ask for the code and they will give it to you to use for free.
Shopping at Waterbom
At the entrance to the park is a shop with anything that you may have forgotten for your day out. I once forgot my bathers and had accidentally left them at our villa in Seminyak!! So silly of me but I manage to find a pair of Billabong bathers that I still wear today for a reasonable price. They weren’t really cheap but no more than what you would pay in Australia. They have a range of swim nappies and other swimming products also near the kidzone if you run out.
These are easy to organise and they give you an armband so you can come and go as you please. This can be especially useful if you have young kids and are staying close by, you could have an early play head back to the hotel room for a sleep then back for some more fun in the afternoon. The Discovery Mall across the road has lots of shops including Sephora, I may have popped out for a shop last trip ;-)
Waterbom Security and Safety
Each vehicle that attempts to come to the entrance of the park is checked out and bags are checked after tickets are purchased. The park is extremely clean, each bathroom area has it’s own attendant! Australian waterparks take note!! We have always felt very safe at the park and the quality control is high.
Waterbom Kuta Facilities
The splash bands are great as there is no need to worry about money during the day. You simply load up any amount of money at the entrance and other points around the park to use at all outlets throughout the day. We usually load up $100 AUD for the day and if we need more cash it’s easy to load and if we don’t use it all you can easily get the money refunded when you hand in the band.
Hair Braiding/Nail Spa
Disabled and Pram Access
There are many ramps into and around the park and we always find it easy to push a pram around.
Hotels near Waterbom Bali
There are some fabulous kid friendly resorts near Waterbom and our picks would be the following as seen in our Ultimate Bali with kids guide which you can find here. These hotels near Waterbom park Bali have amazing kids facilities and will often have discounts to Waterbom available so make sure to ask if you haven’t pre-purchased your cheap Waterbom tickets.
Holiday Inn Baruna
We loved our stay at Holiday Inn Resort Baruna. I’m not usually a Kuta fan but really enjoyed the beautiful gardens and pool area. The rooms, although not ultra new, were comfortable and the kids especially loved the themed rooms of the kids suites. We couldn’t keep the kids away from the kids club and the Tea Tree Spa gave us one of the best massages of our trip.
Bali Dynasty Resort Bali
If you are after a fun hotel with lots of things to do the Dynasty Resort Bali is for your family. A huge range of activities for the kids to do, the school aged kids will especially have a blast. I was a bit surprised to see it wasn’t directly on the beach front when I walked through last trip and the pool area did seem quite busy so if you are after a more relaxing time perhaps look elsewhere.
Bali Hard Rock Hotel
The Hard Rock Bali Hotel is known to be a kids paradise. The fun pools, cafe and kids club make this to be one of the best hotels in central Kuta. If you don’t want to be in the middle of the action the Hard Rock is not for you, but if lots of things to do with the kids then you have found your spot.
Sheraton Kuta Bali
Sheraton is in a fantastic position linked to the Beachwalk Mall in Kuta. The facilities are great for a relaxing stay for Mum and Dad with the kids being in the centre of everything. They also have an excellent Sunday Brunch so coinciding your stay over a Sunday is a great idea.
Febris Hotel Bali
If you are after a cheaper hotel in Kuta that still has great facilities for kids then Febri’s Hotel & Spa is a great choice. The family rooms are great value and the kids playground near the pool is great for the kids.
