Waterbom is the largest waterpark in Indonesia and has been a favorite stop for families holidaying in Bali for many years. However, now many families are also now trying out Splash at the Canggu Club for water fun and frolics. Today we’re going to run down some of the pros and cons of both waterparks in Bali!

Thrills

Waterbom boasts 13 rides from Mild to Extreme like Climax and Boomerang, which are definitely not for the faint hearted. Kids love the Funtastic area with water cannons, slides, climbing areas and jets all in shallow, kid-friendly water.

Splash is a much smaller park with just 4 main slides, around a fantastic water playpark in the middle of a lagoon pool. There is also a lazy river, rope swing, and slippery pole that kids and adults love.

Facilities

Waterbom offers a large changing, toilet and locker area close to the entrance to the park. Leaving everything behind may seem a bit strange at first, but the keyless lockers save the trouble of losing a camera, phone or any other valuables. If you feel like a break from the slides, Waterbom also offers massage and reflexology, hair braiding, a fish spa and nail treatments. There is also a first aid area for any accidents that might occur. Cashless wristbands take care of paying without worrying about money.

Splash has a locker and changing area as well as Splash Hire Shop for towel and life vest rentals. As with Waterbom a cashless wristband system saves you digging through your wallet while you’re wet. A first aid room is located behind the hire shop.

Food & Drinks

Four food outlets plus a pool bar and juice bar are available for hungry guests at Waterbom. Everything from your basic chips and sandwiches to the newest addition Thaitalian restaurant, a mix of comforting Italian and Thai dishes. The pool bar serves icy cold beer and cocktails in the main pool.

On the other hand Splash has just one poolside bar and restaurant. The menu is pretty great though, with lots of light bites, pizzas, pasta and Mexican dishes. Cold beers and tasty cocktails can be delivered right to your lounger. You also have access to Bistro C at the Canggu Club, which is well regarded for fresh, quality meals.

Bali Kids Guide Community Comments on these Waterparks in Bali

“We loved splash, it was great for our 2 & 5 year old. Went in morning and there was no lining up for slides etc. Plenty of space for kids to play. Lots of beach loungers right next to kids area so easy to keep an eye on them. I imagine a lot quieter than Waterbom which with small children was just what we were after.” 

“Take a nanny to Waterbom with young kids, much bigger and way more slides. In saying that, I prefer splash as my kids don’t love the big slides and splash is small and compact easier to keep an eye on kid’s. Go to Finn’s Beach Club after for a well earned cocktail.”

“We have done both serval times and both have a lot of positives and are great days out. Our kids loved going to splash and doing the bowling/bounce first and loved the lack of line ups. Waterbom is also great, for all ages with a lot more to do, more thrill rides for the older ones.” 

“I can’t comment on Splash but we loved the Waterbom with our kids (at the time aged 4-12). The life guards (I think that’s what they were anyway) spent heaps of time in the water playing with the youngest two and they supplied life-jackets for them as well. The adults will definitely love the rides! It is more expensive but I think it’s worth it.” 

“Splash is great for the younger kids we had a 3 year old and a 10 month old and it was awesome for the 3 year old he had a ball.”

“We went to both and had age range of 3-15… All voted Waterbom!” 

“Waterbom is da bomb ?Went last year with 2 toddlers & a Nanny.. Awesome.”   

“We love Splash. Can see kids all over the water park. Very good for kids with rides.”

“Waterbom by a mile, it’s like comparing Luna Park to Dreamworld.”

Conclusion

We love both parks, as do tons of the BKG Community, but the consensus is that Splash is much better for younger kids than Waterbom. Thrill seekers will definitely want to head straight to Waterbom to scare themselves silly, but if you’re looking for a chilled out spot to lounge and let younger kids play safely Splash is probably for you.

And don’t forget booking in advance with Klook will save you time and money!
