Toys in the Waterpark

Ever wanted to walk on water? Now you can!

Climb inside these inflatable 2-meter balls and experience "walking on water." Check them out at Southland Leisure Centre for some serious hamster-ball fun!

Where can I try them?

Southland Leisure Centre on Thursday nights from 7 - 9 p.m.

Who can try them?

Anyone aged 7 and up can try them without an adult present. Children under the age of 7 should have an adult in the water beside them. Balls are tethered and the line is held by a monitor.

How much does it cost?

There is no extra fee for using the balls. Visit Leisure Centre Fees for general admission prices.


About the WOW Balls

The cup-like construction of the outer surface grips and paddles through the water as you spin the globe, allowing you to rock-and-roll across the water quickly. There are two entry/exit portholes and handles on the interior and exterior to allow for easy entries and exits.
