The Big Wedgie | World’s Tallest Inflatable Waterslide | West Beach Parks | 28 Sep – 13 Oct 2019

The Big Wedgie at West Beach Parks October School Holidays

The Big Wedgie returns to West Beach Parks these school holidays – hitting the famed Adelaide holiday park for its second year!

The Big Wedgie’s welcome return will include 4 inflatable, family-friendly waterslides with something for all ages.  Locals will remember (and tourists will never forget) the star of the show: The Big Wedgie waterslide!

Standing at a whopping 18.2 meters tall and 82 meters long with a thrilling 55-degree slope, The Big Wedgie is the current world record holder for the world’s tallest freestanding inflatable waterslide. The 4-lane racer slide has been a staple of the Adelaide summer school holidays for 5 years – with kids and adults alike rocketing down the steep slope and experiencing a wedgie they’ll actually enjoy!

Joining the world-recorder holder is big-kid favourite, The Big Chucka – for the “unimaginable wedgie!” Think an 80-degree freefall, throwing you up to 9m in the air to then land on an inflatable Hollywood stunt-man landing pad! Crazy, right? Well, this crowd-pleaser is just as thrilling to watch as it is to ride… For those who are brave enough to try it!

Rounding out the 2019 line-up are smaller slides, The Just Right Wedgie and The Little Wedgie – offering a less extreme option to little ones aged 3 and up.

The Just Right Wedgie is the perfect waterslide for those looking for a wedgie that’s not too big, not too small, but juuuuuust right – while The Little Wedgie is ideal for young ones!
