TAP FOR MORE INFO:

A never-ending river, a water-fuelled pirate fortress and a tangle of twisting slides can all be found at New Zealand’s only water theme park. 

Splash Planet in Hastings is a popular spot in the hot Hawke’s Bay summers, with bountiful opportunities to get wet. 

The park’s first incarnation was as Fantasyland back in 1968, but the sprawling 6.5-hectare site has been re-imagined as a mecca for watery fun. 

Shoot down the hydro slides and water rides; splash on the bumper boats and relax on the lazy river. 

There’s plenty to do if you’d rather keep dry too, with go-karts, mini golf, kayaks and kid-friendly jeeps to drive. 

Pack a picnic, book a barbecue spot and stay for the day.
