New Waterslide on Track for Summer 23/24
The Leeton Shire community can look forward to an exhilarating experience at the Leeton Regional Aquatic Centre with a brand-new 9m high twin ring waterslide expected to open to the public in time for the next summer swimming season.
Swimplex Aquatics was awarded the tender for the slide and the concrete works for the foundation were completed by 1 March 2023. Arrival of the slide components is scheduled for mid-year 2023 with assembly aiming to be completed by the end of August.
The slide will include a 9m high tower comprised of 3 staircases and 3 levels which are connected at the top platform, and which then wind down into multiple, exciting loops before exiting into two separate run-off chutes at the bottom. The chutes will be constructed on the existing concrete foundation.
The top platform will also feature a shade sail for added sun protection, a traffic light system that will indicate when it’s your turn, and safety features including an automatic stop button. An operator located at the top to guide users will add to patron safety.
Manager Open Space & Recreation, Josh Clyne, believes the new slide will be a major drawcard for the Leeton Regional Aquatic Centre.
“Without doubt it’s going to be a sensational addition to our new pool complex. We look forward to keeping residents posted as the build progresses,” he said.
