Adventure World

Amusement Park in Perth

Highlights of Adventure World's 28 rides are the Abyss roller coaster; the Black Widow, a G-force-defying spinning wonder; and (release) the Kraken, the world's longest and steepest funnel water slide, navigable in four-person rafts. Other water- and theme-park attractions include rapids, go-karts, Australian wildlife, a castle and the lofty Sky Lift.

The park is 18km south of Perth; come off the Kwinana Fwy at Farrington Rd, turn right and follow the signs. Buy tickets online to sidestep the queues.
