Adventure World Perth, Western Australia

Adventure On…. at Adventure World

We have lived in Perth for three years.  Since leaving full-time work just recently (yes, it does feel as good as you think it’s going to!) I have been exploring our local area of Perth.

We have just connected with a lovely family from the UK (The Jones) on a facebook group we love called Worldschoolers.  Basically, families that school their children while travelling the world!!

So that was Saturday night, we got together Sunday and had the most lovely day exploring Kings Park, Elizabeth Quay and just talking about travel and more talking about travel.  It was fantastic. 

We had so much fun that on Monday which just happened to be THE most beautiful day we went to ADVENTURE WORLD. 

It was the first time Miss B and I had been (Brett hasn’t finished work yet, so he missed out. Yes I felt a wee bit guilty. Sort of. Ok, not really).

You know how fun it is, to go to a new place.  And how much more fun it is, to do it with new friends!  We had a blast.  I used my Gopro in a chest harness on the rides (only chest harness is permitted) for the first time you can check it out on the links below.


All Ages

It is not a large park, but there is something for all ages.  There are two different water play areas so the younger kids don’t get run over by the excited older kids. 

The young ones have their own water bucket play area that will drop 600 litres of water on their head (not kidding) called ‘Kingdom Falls’.

The older kids can have 1000 litres of water dumped on their heads at Kahuna Falls. 

Both Miss B and Leo loved this area and had a ball there.


Younger Kids

Enter Dragon Kingdom! There is lots of grassed areas to have a picnic. You can watch as your kids go on rides or enjoy Kingdom Falls mentioned above. It is very centralised and a safe environment to let them enjoy. 

Ride on the Barrel Spin, Dragon Flyer and lots of other fun rides.  Most rides you must be 90cm to ride.

The Rail Rider was fun, allowing the kids to view the park from a decent height while they pedal the cart around the track (approx 5 minutes return).  A great way to burn some energy and get some great pictures of Adventure World.

Your little ones will love the fairy tree! 

We went on a weekday and not in school holidays so some of the rides share attendants, you don’t have to wait long though. 


Older kids

Oh Yeah! Who does not like a roller coaster!

The Abyss was awesome!  We rode it, at least six times.  I would have been happy to ride it again but had to check out the other rides too. 

You can ride the Abyss with Cake and Eat it 3 here! 

My all time favourite ride attendant award, goes to the attendant on ‘Rampage’. He had a great sense of humour, had everyone laughing and clearly loved his job.  This really lifted the excitement and theme park vibe!


Food / Info on Park

Yes there is food, not too badly priced either and lots of options.  Yes, you can bring your own and have a picnic on the grass.  For local families a seasons pass would be ideal. 

What a great place to duck into for a couple of hours after school in the Perth Summer heat or make a day of it on the weekend with other families.

The park is open from September to April only.

There are lots of discount deals for multiple visits, return visits, fast pass and season passes.  Ticket details available on their website Adventure World.


Discounts – Save some money on entry

Of course you know we will always check if there is a special discount so don’t forget RAC holders and the Entertainment Book (which we used) will Save you some money! 

I will admit the water was freezing! But my friends from UK said it was fine.  So if I was picking an ideal time to visit I would probably say Sept – Jan would be perfect.  But we had a ball and still rode the Kraken water ride which was great fun! 

You can see a short clip of our day at Adventure World on youtube here.

There may, or may not have been, a bit of editing of the gopro footage to avoid beeps as I had a wave of cold water dumped down my back while riding the Kraken!

Happy travels!
