Get ready to embrace adventure this summer as Funfields Theme Park has opened its gates for the season. Located in Whittlesea, just 40km north of Melbourne, Funfields offers 24 awesome rides and attractions and with a huge multimillion dollar expansion this year including the addition of two World Class rides you can expect the excitement to be out of this world!
This year Funfields debuted its latest record-breaking water attraction: the 186-metre long and 28.6-metre tall Gravity Wave. "The Funfields TornadoWAVE60 sets the record for the tallest and biggest water slide in Victoria, and holds the world record for biggest installation of its kind by our company" says Phil Hayles, ProSlide VP of Business Development.
He goes on to say "This attraction is a four-person family tubing experience and riders virtually defy gravity as they sweep up and across the wall, experiencing near weightlessness and zero-G forces." Gravity Wave is Funfield's third world record collaboration with ProSlide.
Also launching this year is the Voodoo, a ride which will leave you spellbound.......

Enjoy the speed of the Typhoon. This slide, installed in 2013, is a 137-metre long enclosed tube ride, and another ProSlide record for the Worlds longest ProSlide CannonBOW. Be prepared to descend down 137 metres of open and closed sections at over 30km/h before being sucked into the Typhoon, where the real fun begins!
Two years later came the park's KrakenRACER, the first of its kind in Australia. The head-first mat slide hurtles riders down braided lanes at 60 kilometres per hour. With speeds of over 60kms/hr, race face first against your friends and family and find out who is the ultimate speed demon.
Experience the tandem terror of the Blackout and the Wipeout waterslides. Both slides feature dips, swerves and drops of over 100m, and the Blackout riders will experience it all in pure darkness! Regain your nerve by grabbing a friend and hitting up the Splashdown - the perfect slide for riders of all ages.
Funfields Theme Park offers a tantalising mix of both wet and dry rides.
Enjoy the iconic Alpine Toboggan Slide, the only toboggan installation in Victoria and a huge hit for Funfielders of all ages.
