Children are being entertained at the A&P Showgrounds in Pukekohe this week with ‘Waterslide Mania’.
Beginning yesterday (Thursday) and running through until next Monday, January 12, the event has already attracted families from all over the Franklin District.
Queues lined up early to purchase tickets. They were so long that, at various times, patrons had to wait 40 minutes to get their tickets.
“It was well worth it,” commented one parent.
“We only paid $13 for the entire six hours and the kids could use any of the three slides. Where else can you take your family for that amount of money for a day of fun? No wonder people are queuing up”
A locally-owned business
Calling themselves, Wet ‘n Wild Slides,the owners are Franklin-based and their normal business is in the specialising of hiring inflatable water slides to the public or for private events in the greater Auckland Region, as well as parts of Waikato and Northland.
They have also developed their slides in New Zealand, specifically for New Zealand conditions and operate during the summer months from mid-October to mid-April.
“Fantastic concept” says Sonya
Sonya Haslip of Patumahoe is rapt with the concept of providing the kids with three different-sized water slides, that are named ‘Crazy Cruiser’, ‘Lightening Luge’ and ‘Downhill Dragster’.
“I think it is a fantastic concept,” she said.
She and her son, Jack, attended the ‘Waterslide Mania’ last year and on that basis, they learned a few lessons.
“This year we have come well prepared with a tent to shield us from the sun so we can stay as long as we wish,” she said.
Bring your kids to the A&P Showgrounds over the weekend
There are still three days left for children to attend the ‘Waterslide Mania’ – Saturday, January 10, Sunday, January 11 and Monday, January 12.
It opens daily at 10.30am and runs until 4.30pm.
Of interest too is that Waterslide Mania’s next appreance in the Franklin area will be at Taste Franklin Event being held at the Karaka Sports Ground, Karaka, on Saturday March 12, 2015, featuring the Mega Mountain.
