Carnival reveals design for ground-breaking green and gold waterpark on Carnival Splendor

Today, Carnival Cruise Line revealed the much-anticipated design for Carnival Splendor’s new WaterWorks, including two thrilling waterslides and a SplashZone to be added as part of her extensive dry dock in November, in anticipation of her arrival into her new homeport of Sydney in December this year.

Building on Carnival’s reputation for jaw-dropping waterslides, Carnival Splendor, set to become the newest and largest ship home-ported in Australia, will feature an adrenaline-packed green and gold WaterWorks packed with two slides that tower 50 metres above the waterline.

If the walk up to the start of the slide isn’t enough of a draw for daredevils, the green thrill-slide measures at almost 40-metres-long and will begin with an impressive 11.3 metre free-fall drop as the capsule floor opens, followed by a slingshot curve, twisting and sliding guests into a giant swirling bowl.

A perennial Carnival favourite, the yellow Twister Waterslide™ on Carnival Splendor takes riders through 104 metres of twists and turns before they return to solid ground.

Carnival Splendor’s WaterWorks will also include MiniRacer slides, splash toys and The Power Drencher tipping bucket, so the whole family can get in on the fun.

“Action-packed waterparks are what Carnival does best – so when Aussies told us it was a favourite feature on Carnival Spirit and Legend, we wanted to raise the bar when it came to designing a new WaterWorks for Carnival Splendor,” said Jennifer Vandekreeke, Vice President Carnival Cruise Line Australia.

“We can’t wait for Carnival Splendor’s arrival through the heads in December so we can see the smiles and hear the squeals of joy as our guests take on this epic waterpark.
