Waterbom Bali


Waterbom Bali is well known as one of the best places for families looking for fun on the Island of the Gods (it was voted the Travelers Choice 2013 Winner of the Top 25 Amusement Parks & Water Parks in Asia from Tripadvisor). Not one to rest on its laurels, the amusement park continues to expand, with four exciting new waterslides set to launch in April.

In gratitude for the parks’ continued success and in line with its commitment to the environment, the Waterbom Bali team has teamed up with eco-preservation groups in Pemutaran Bay in Northern Bali to support their turtle release and rehabilitation program as well as the Biorock program to revitalise, rejuvenate and rehabilitate reef growth. Both of these programs were chosen for their sustainable practices.

At the end of January, the Waterbom team headed to Pemutaran to help release some baby turtles into the ocean – turtles that would return to that very beach at some point in the distant future to lay their own eggs.  The Waterbom team also installed a welded Biorock structure in the reef, shaped to form the distinctive wave logo of Waterbom. Biorock structures use a small electrical current that causes the accretion of minerals around the structure. The result is a substance that can harbour sea life in a way very similar to natural coral, making it a sustainable way to rehabilitate damaged reefs.
