Arguably one of Sun City’s most popular attractions, the Vally of the Waves is certainly South Africa’s most advanced water park. This mechanically-generated wave pool and its artificial beach promises fun in the sun for the whole family.
At the heart of the magical Lost City at the Sun City resort, lies the Valley of The Waves - one of the most advanced water parks in the world.
The Valley of the Waves is dominated by the Roaring Lagoon, a large mechanically-generated wave pool, fringed by a sandy, palm-lined beach. Bobbing wave cycles are separated by thrilling 1.8m waves generated every 90 seconds.
Adding to the non-stop fun, there are 5 exciting flume rides. The aptly named Temple of Courage plummets swimmers down a 17 metre shoot that passes beneath a bridge and ends in a small pool. The Tarantula and Scorpion rides are both body slides, while the Mamba and Viper require large inflatable tubes. The Lazy River is far more sedate and has swimmers gliding along gently on inflatable tubes.
For smaller children, the sparkling pool with central rock feature, slides and spouting water features is ideal.
The Royal Bath swimming pool, adjacent to the Royal Arena amphitheatre, is surrounded by towering ruins and thick jungle foliage. The domed Observatory Bar on the deck nearby offers exciting cocktails and refreshing drinks.
Surrounding the Valley of the Waves, the Botanical Gardens hide a number of unique experiences, including the Sway Bridge, secret adventure paths and the Hidden Cave Falls.
The elephant-lined Bridge of Time and it’s massive wooden doors links the Valley of the Waves to the Entertainment Center. A mock-volcano erupts regularly, complete with lights, smoke and a simulated earthquake.
As an overnight visitor, the Sun City Resort offers free access to the Valley of the Waves. This amazing feature of the Sun City Resort also offers a food court with tasty fast foods for those having too much fun to stop!
