Waterpark expansion underway at Jamberoo Action Park

Waterpark expansion underway at Jamberoo Action Park
July 2, 2012

The first stage of Jamberoo Action Park's long-awaited expansion plans have commenced, with preliminary site works underway.

Full construction will start over the coming weeks to develop 'Kangaroo Island', the location for the most exciting, high-thrill, water-based rides ever built in NSW.

The $11.6 million project includes new rides, a 1,700 space carpark and road upgrades on Jamberoo Road to allow faster access into the park.

Jamberoo Action Park General Manager Dax Eddy explained "it's fantastic that construction has finally commenced and we are now in the process of building the most thrilling water ride experiences ever seen in NSW.

"In stage 1, we will build an interactive water play area that will be the largest ever built in Australia, as well as a Tornado water slide a raft based ride that loops and twists before dropping into a huge funnel then shooting out into a splash pool there's some incredibly exciting things ahead!"

Jamberoo Action Park's expansion program will create upwards of 80 local construction jobs with the Talon Construction Group awarded the contract to build stage one.

Plans for the expansion of Jamberoo Action Park originally envisaged this development commencing in 2010, however, Kiama Municipal Council consistently opposed and delayed the development.

Jamberoo Action Park Managing Director Jim Eddy eventually gained approval for the expansion from the NSW Joint Regional Planning Panel.
