The wavepark has been closed for a long time. The maintainance is terrible. It should be revamped to add to the Gateway experience.

Half day visit
Jan 2020 • Family
A fun place for kids. We paid for a hapfday visit 1pm to 5pm. Once my daughter left for the tube water slide she stopped at 4:30pm. There are about 5 water slide of different gradients. Fortunately when one the day we went, it was not that busy. The slide queues went fairly quick. The a small kiddies pool for the little ones as well one of the slides. Theres a surfer pool for the adrenaline junky teens. The cost for the half day visit, excludes thw surf pool.

Fun but with a serious safety issue!
Dec 2019
Lots of fun for the family at a reasonable price, but the park requires some serious maintenance.

The biggest issue is that the highest slide does not have any stairs to access it, only a LIFT. Yes, can you believe it? What water park has a lift as the only option to get on the biggest attraction?
Not sure which genius came up with this idea but it's absolutely barking mad.

The current lift is a SERIOUS health & safety hazard as it doesn't appear to have been maintained at all. The door doesn't close properly and the attendant has to stand outside and force it closed, before it will move. SCARY!!! On a number of occasions, the door closed and nothing happened, only for the door to reopen again. Very frightening, particularly when you are jam packed in a HOT, stuffy lift, with very little room to move. On top of this, the external intercom was clearly broken, with exposed wires showing.

There didn't appear to be any control over how many people got into the lift. Park attendants just turned a blind eye even when kids piled in, clearly more than the limit stated. As an adult, I had to take charge on a number of occasions and ensure some order, as well as limiting the numbers so that the lift would actually move.

Surely the owners HAVE to build some stairs? Not only are they much safer but will also reduce queues. This needs to be done ASAP before a serious incident happens.

Apart from this significant issue, the water park is a lot of fun, with the highest slide one of the better ones I've been on and I've been to water parks all over the world.

There isn't a lot of variety, only a few different slides but enough to keep the family entertained for half a day or so.

Food is available to be purchased and is not ridiculously priced. Although table service is extremely slow, particularly when the park is busy.

In general it just looks like the whole park needs some TLC as it appears to be neglected.

WAVE PARK FUN
Feb 2019
Excellent water park with slides for the kids and relaxing area for the adults. Life guards on duty ensure the kids play safe.There is a wave park for the surfing enthusiasts as well as a fun toddlers play area. Nice little restaurant inside that caters for basic needs.

Safe Fun for Children
Feb 2019 • Family
There is limited entertainment here, but what is on offer is well run. My boys enjoy the lift up to the Super Tube and the Wet Football goals. There is a fee for parents to sit on the viewing deck and watch.This would occupy 8-12 year olds for a couple of hours.

Great summer outing to Wavepark at Gateway.
Dec 2018 • Couples
There is never ending fun for both adult and children at Wavepark, to slide in water from the top of the trail to the bottom being off loaded to the pool of water is too much fun, the heatwave that is being experience in KZN during summer forces people to take their children to the Wavepark at Gateway to cool themselves in water. Great fun for everybody.

Good place to spend some time
Dec 2018 • Family
It is a good place to spend some time. There isn't much variety to the slides. There are one big slide and two big tube slides, one medium tube slide and three small slides. There is also a water play area for small children. The rest of the attractions (two small wave riders and an inflatable park for children) you have to pay for separately, which was a big let down after already paying what I considered was enough of an entry fee.
