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. Come for a few hours or spend the entire day. Whatever your age you will love The Waterworks.
Come along and see for yourself what a little bit of “kiwi ingenuity” can do!
Open every day (except Christmas Day) from 10.00am. Visit www.thewaterworks.co.nz for further details, including pricing.

Heaps of fun with interactive things to play with.
Unfortunately some were out of order :(
Would be a great place to take kids.
Adult flying fox is a bit dangerous as I rope burnt my leg on the way down and it immediately came up as a huge bruise on inner thigh *ouch* but other than that its a great place to explore and play.

Excellent activity for young kids - quirky but different.
Great parklike water themed activity centre. Focus on recycling and water and play for young and old. Picnic Places, BBQs supplied, great cafe.
Alternative water fun, had a great time, however too expensive for what it is.
A fantastic day out for all ages (we were from ages 1 to 77!). We have been a few times now and this time was no exception. The kids loved getting the adults wet. The kids loved getting wet. The non-water items were fascinating and were a great opportunity to dry off before the next water attack. Highly recommended for something completely different.
wow - not a theme park, but a time warp. you think you can pop in for an hour or so and 3 hours later you finally escape. many of the displays are in need of maintenance - but this does not detract from the experience
