WHEN Cockburn ARC opens for its first day of business on Monday, there will be plenty of attractions pulling people in.
There are indoor and outdoor heated pools, a spa, sauna and steam room, an indoor sports stadium, a gym and fitness studios.
But the elements sure to excite most about the $109 million facility are likely to be the three 18m-high water slides.
There is a 70m blue Rocket which features a mind-blowing drop for those brave enough to try it.
The City of Cockburn says it is currently the only looping rocket in WA.
There is a 125m Pipeline, a fully enclosed body-slide decked out with multi-coloured lighting.
The third ride is the Tumbler, which caters for up to two people on a rubber raft.
Four lucky people were given an early look at the Tumbler and Pipeline. Here’s what they said
Isobel Lindsay: “They’re different to what I’ve been on before; so they’re cool. They’re really fun.”
Aidan Lindsay: “I had a lot of fun. I like the Tumbler when it glows and when you sucked in; you get drenched.”
Tom Warren: “The Tumbler is fun; there is a lot of water coming over you.”
Aaron Petrie: “I loved it. The slides are great. I’d recommend coming and giving it a shot.”
