Funfields is Melbourne’s premier theme park, offering a great mix of exciting thrill rides, tobogganing, go-karting (suitable for juniors too) and a fantastic aqua park with “The Kraken” - a four lane hi-speed water slide. It is a 40 min drive from the CBD on the Ring Road and has ample space & facilities for picnicking and BBQing! A great day out.
Funfields has grown to become Melbourne’s Premier Theme Park. Stage 0ne of the Parks development occurred in 1997 which saw the introduction of the Thunderdome Go Kart Track and the Crocodile Creek Mini Golf course. Along with these two attractions 3 shelters were built.
Stage 2 of the Park’s development saw the installation of the electric Bumper Boats in a 300 sq. metre pool. In 2006 the Funfields KidZone area was created and we installed a Carousel and an electric mini go kart track…..”Formula Fun” Another two shelters were constructed.
We had the opportunity to purchase the classic swinging Pirate Ship from Sea World on the Gold Coast.
The ship was purchased, dismantled and driven to Funfields on the back of two semi trailers and a truck. The Pirate Ship, which we named Blackbeards Fury, was an instant success and it brought back many memories for patrons who had ridden the ship at Sea World.
Stage 3 saw Funfields’ first foray into waterslides and two slides - Blackout and Wipeout were planned and built by Australian waterslide manufacturer AWL. At this time we constructed another shelter but this new shelter was much larger than the previous ones we had constructed with a seating capacity of around 300.
To round off Stage 3 a multilevel water play unit was installed. Named Wacky Waters this unit featured 3 large slides, a Hydrostorm and over 22 interactive features.
Snakes Alive a form of Cup and Saucer ride with a bit of a twist] was added to the KidZone in 2012 along with the Burnout.
