The slides and rides were supplied by WhiteWater.
A brand new, all-weather water park has splashed down in Macau.
Studio City Indoor Water Park was officially launched this week with an exciting mix of 16 thrilling water rides and attractions.
The family-friendly, all-year-round attraction features a slide-if-you-dare complex with a 20m zero-gravity freefall slide that has been branded the most extreme ride in the region.
Further highlights include a giant bucket that tips 1.8 tons of water every three minutes, Little Lagoon, which is a specially designated child-friendly area with shallow pools, a fountain and age-appropriate slides, and Riverscape, a 450m river adventure flanked by spacious daybeds and real sand.
The water park has been designed for families.
The 10,000sqm indoor water park is part of the Studio City Phase 2 development. The US$1.2 billion development has been designed by Zaha Hadid Architects and includes two luxury hotel towers housing Epic Tower and W Macau, the new water park, a cinema, restaurants and exhibition space. Epic Tower was launched alongside the water park. The full opening of the development will continue in stages throughout this year. It follows a series of delays caused by the pandemic.
“The grand opening of the Studio City Indoor Water Park offers an all-new, all-weather and all-year-round one of a kind water-fun experience for guests of all ages,” said David Sisk, chief operating officer of Melco Resorts, at the launch. “It further strengthens the leisure entertainment components of Studio City making it an unforgettable, top-notch entertainment destination.”
The indoor water park will be joined by a connecting outdoor water park which launched in 2021 and opens this weekend for the summer season.
Studio City Indoor Water Park, Level 3, West Wing, Studio City, Estrada do Istmo, Cotai, Macau; 12-8pm daily; MOP388 (day pass) or MOP1,088 (season pass with unlimited access).
