A temporary waterpark has just opened near the Belmont Park Racecourse – its enormous 7 storey inflatable waterslides visible from the Graham Farmer Freeway. The 23 metre high dual lane racing slide is the largest inflatable slide in the world and just one of the many attractions at the new Xscape at the City.



Xscape at the City
Fun for all ages


Brand new for Perth, Xscape will operate from November to April and although there are no age restrictions, there are height restrictions on some of the rides of 110cm (the height of your average five or six year old).

Other rides include the Waterfall: a four lane slide where you splash down from a starting point of over 15 metres high and The Cliff, another suitably terrifyingly named waterslide.

The Drop is seven storeys high


For young children and those who prefer to keep their feet on the ground, there will be an enormous water play pool plus the Dinosaur Water Park which has six mini waterslides (maximum 4.2m high), water jets and other fun attractions perfect for smaller kids.

Xscape also provides the largest inflatable obstacle course in the world, where you can race your friends over 65 metres of covered bouncy terrain. There are 18 shaded trampolines plus an enormous chill-out zone with beanbags and other relaxing comforts.

Children under five need to be accompanied by an adult at all times and there is the height restriction on the larger, scarier slides, but this is a family friendly event and there will be plenty of things to do.

There will be an on-site café plus a huge amount of shaded picnic and seating areas, baby change facilities, high chairs and free parking at the racecourse, as well as a free shuttle bus operating from the Claisebrook Train Station.

The pop-up will be run by the same team who manage Xscape at the Cape in Dunsborough and tickets are only $32.50 for all-day access to all rides, and $27.50 for all-day access to the pools and dry attractions (ie not the large waterslides).

Non-participating spectators are charged a nominal $4 entry fee with $2 being donated to Telethon.

Under fives are free, and can have access to the special Under 5s Kids Zone as well as the water play areas (when accompanied by a paying adult).

Tickets will be available online soon and it is recommended to purchase in advance to beat the crowds.
