Unfortunately the slides are now closed for safety reasons. We had an accident on the slides and until they are made safe and improved, WorksafeNZ have advised they are to remain closed.

The Scary Slippery Slides are only open on busy weekends and by appointment. Please call to see if they are open. We do not run the slides often, as there is a water shortage.

The slides are not for the faint-hearted. Fun with a hillside, a plastic sheet and water and glorious speed.  The slides are set in Manaia Native Habitat on the slopes above The Little River Campground. A 5 minute walk from the car-park through native bush opens to a plateau. Pay on the day $5, Cash only please.
The conditions of entry are ‘enter at your own risk’. Suitable for tough kids 3 and up and up-for-it parents. Heaps of wet fun for the whole family.

Not open all the time, so call first. 021611820
