Waterslide completion sees Cockburn ARC enter final stages before opening

Waterslide completion sees Cockburn ARC enter final stages before opening
March 1, 2017

The recent completion of the three waterslides at the Cockburn ARC aquatic, recreation and sport centre is a significant milestone as the new facility approaches its anticipated opening in the coming months.

One of the largest developments of its kind in Australia, the new facility will provide state-of-the-art aquatic and recreation facilities, as well as being the new home of the Fremantle Football Club.

Within the overall project cost of more than $100 million, the aquatic components of the facility include a 50 metre outdoor pool, 25 metre indoor pool, children’s play structure and three large waterslides: an aqua-tube rafting slide; the Space Boat shuttle dual rubber raft ride and, for thrillseekers, the blue looping rocket slide.

Starting from an 18 metre-high tower, the slides offer a highly visual identity for the new facility.

The Polin Waterparks slides were installed by Swimplex Aquatics, with Commercial Aquatics Australia providing the filtration and hydraulic systems.
