The Waterworks

Address:
471, The 309 Road, Coromandel Town, New Zealand, 3581 - View the map

Release the child within and experience New Zealand's quirkiest theme park. Voted by AA Tourism as a must-do Kiwi experience The Waterworks is a theme park with a difference. Set in 5 acres of native Coromandel Bush and just 10 minutes from Coromandel Town is an array of water powered inventions, quirky contraptions and fun to discover at every turn.

Inspired by the ability to create something new out of something old our attractions are made largely from recycled materials and are powered by water, Water is used to keep time on the wooden water clock; watch out though it often works on Coromandel time. We've got water cannons to blast away on and bikes that pump H2O. Our human sized hamster wheel is an absolute hoot and our mad inventions leave people wondering what the?!?.

As well as the 70+ attractions to look at, play on, or interact with, The Waterworks has a generous adventure playground area perfect for picnics, an onsite cafe, free use of BBQs and a natural swimming hole to cool off in during the hot summer months. Come for a few hours or spend the entire day. Whatever your age you will love The Waterworks.

Come along and see for yourself what a little bit of kiwi ingenuity can do!

Open every day (except Christmas Day) from 10.00am. Visit www.thewaterworks.co.nz for further details, including pricing..
