SSun City’s Valley of the Waves, magnificent golf courses and stunning hotels, including the timeless elegance of their crowning glory, the Palace, are well known between local and international tourists alike. Visitors flock from all around South Africa and the globe for that matter, to escape to a different world where fun and fantasy allow you a brief respite from the hustle and bustle of daily life.
AAnd while this magnificent resort complex offers the perfect place to simply kick back and relax, there is also another wilder side to those who wish to discover it. And I’m not just talking about the obvious wild adventures offered in the neighbouring Pilanesberg Game Reserve, which is home to the Big Five alongside a whole host of other game species, but also the exciting adventure activities on offer right inside the Sun City resort.
Why not dance over the swing bridge, explore the brand new maze or brave the Temple of Courage’s 70-metre slide? If that doesn’t get your heart racing, then test out the two new slides that were added to the Valley of the Waves mid last year. The one takes you on a heart-pumping adventure on a double tube (so that someone else can you hear you scream) as you get thrown into the dark before plummeting up a vertical wall. Here you are sure you are about to tip over while staring at your feet, before making it safely back to the pool at the bottom, still, safely in your tube. But this has nothing on WhiteWater. On this ride, you are locked into a capsule-like coffin and while a voice counts down the moments to, what seems like, certain death, a floor gives way underneath you. This sends you on a vertical drop of 17 metres and then up and over on the quickest, most exhilarating ride of your life!
