Waterbom Park Bali is the original and biggest Bali water park. It is located in the popular tourist village of Kuta (please see below for map), making it a great thing to do in Legian, Kuta and Seminyak if not the whole of Bali.
Waterbom has a total of 26 rides (all with varying heights restrictions and levels of octane adventure), seven food and drinks places, six facilities and four services all located on 3.8 hectares of lush tropical gardens. This can all sound quite overwhelming. So let’s start at the beginning for planning your day out with these Waterbom Bali tips.

Preparing for Your Day at Waterbom
There are several ways that you can purchase tickets:
- At the door
- Via the waterpark’s website
- At your accommodations tour desk
- Through an online tour booking system
Officially (as at January 2024) Waterbom Bali costs:
- 580 000 IDR/adult
- 430 000 IDR/child
- 1860 000 IDR/family package
Now some of these purchasing choices will give discounts, the option to include transfer and book additional park services. You will also get the choice to book as an individual adult or child (2-11yrs inclusive) or purchase a Waterbom Bali family package (two adults and two children which is a bit cheaper than an individual).
Top Trip Tip: Ensure you take a copy of your pre-paid booking with you
Waterbom Bali open times are Monday to Sunday 9am-6pm except for Nyepi Day (the religious Hindu day of silence).
If you purchased a package with transfers then you are all sorted. If not, you have a couple of options:
- Walk (if you are close by)
- Take a taxi
- Book a driver
- Drive yourself – there is a large carpark out the front
Top Trip Tip: Blue taxis are metered taxis and generally offer a better price
Arrival – the Facilities
Making your way to the entrance you will pass through security. Not only are the security personnel checking that you haven’t packed into your day trip bag anything dangerous, but they are also checking for food and drinks. You CANNOT bring in any food and drinks except a bottle of mineral water, Guest Relations will store any food and drinks you have brought to be collected on departure.
Then make your way to the ticket counters, queue in the appropriate line – purchasing a ticket or already have a booking voucher.
Before going into the waterpark you will be offered a couple of facilities.
1. The Cashless Payment System
The park works on a cashless system. This is safer for everybody. It works like this:
- You are offered a microchipped splash band that Velcro’s onto your wrist
- You then upload funds onto the microchip (either via cash or credit card)
- When you want to purchase an item you swipe your splash band and funds are debited
- If you run out of funds you can top your splash band back up
- At the end of the day if you have funds remaining on the band you are refunded the amount in Indonesian Rupiah cash
2. A Locker
Next, you will be offered a locker. I highly recommend you take one. There are two sizes – large and small. The day we visit we arriv at 10am and all the large lockers are taken. The small locker still fitted our two small day packs – but not towels.
For the locker, you will be given another splash band allowing you to open and close your locker as often as you wish. There are three locker rooms we used the one below the main entrance. The locker room is co-ed, but there are separate male and female toilet and shower blocks leading off the locker room.
3. Gazebo Hire
If you didn’t pre-book a gazebo you will be offered one IF there are any left. Gazebo hire includes a safe for your valuables, therefore you may not want the locker. The other advantage of the gazebo is having a guaranteed place to base yourself throughout the day. There are lots of lounges about the kids’ zone and pleasure pool – but you’ve gotta be early to get them. Again we arrive an hour after opening and they are ALL gone.
Once you head out into the park and start to enjoy the rides and attractions you will come across park photographers. The first photographer you encounter will offer you another splash band. This splash band will record all the photos (a photographer will swipe it each time) taken of you throughout the day. Now don’t fear the photographer, you DO NOT have to buy all or any of the photos, but take advantage of the photographer as he/she may capture a really fun moment.
At the end of your day, take time to stop in at the Photo Booth and check out your photos. There are different packages to purchase photos. Or you can opt to buy nothing at all.
This doesn’t mean you can’t use your own camera. You are welcome to take photos for non-commercial use (except drones). You can even use a camera on three of the waterslides the Boomerang, Green Viper Open and Fast n’ Fierce.
5. First Aid
If you are worried about any spills on the rides there is a first aid station available.
There is free WiFi throughout Waterbom.
7. Safety Measures
Upon entry into the park, your temperature will be taken and you will have to declare your current health status. Check the Waterbom Bali website for the latest updates and requirements.
Top Trip Tip: Leave your shoes, hat and sunglasses in your locker, otherwise you will spend half the day walking back to the beginning of rides to collect them

Rides and Attractions

Drinks and Food
With all that fun of climbing stairs and slipping down slides, you are going to build up a thirst and get pretty hungry. Fortunately, there is no shortage of food options. There appears to be something from every cuisine available in the eateries that are dotted about the park.
