Adventure World is a theme park in Perth, Western Australia. It is located in Bibra Lake, 20 km from the CBD. The park opened on 11 November 1982 as "Edgley’s Adventure World" and undergoes a winter closure each year.
Michael Edgley International created and ran the park from its inception to December 1990. 380,000 tonnes of sand were used to reshape the land contours of the industrial dump site into a suitable theme park location. Since 1999, Omni Leisure Operations has been managing the park. In 1999 LeisureWide Property Trust (a 40% owner of Omni Leisure and owned by Macquarie Bank) did not act on their option to buy Adventure World and since 2000 a West Australian, Steve Sicerich, has owned the park.
The Theme Park includes world-class attractions such as the $12 million roller coaster “Abyss” launched in 2013, the $7 million dollar Kraken, the longest, tallest and steepest Funnel water slide on the planet, the enchanting “Dragon’s Kingdom” and popular Hawaiian resort themed “Kahuna Falls” (an aqua rain fortress) to name a few of the 25 attractions set in beautifully landscaped botanical gardens and lawns. Adventure World is a seasonal business open for 7 months a year to take advantage of Western Australia's summer climate.
The business’ ‘common purpose’ statement is “we create happiness and long lasting magical memories by providing the finest theme park entertainment for people of all ages all of the time” and this underpins every business decision.
