Splash Planet, Parkvale, Hastings 4201, Hawkes Bay, New Zealand
Splash Planet is an amusement park and water park located in the city of Hastings, New Zealand. The park was opened in its current form in 1998.
Before Splash Planet left the drawing board the Hastings District Council put the decision on whether or not Splash Planet would be built to public referendum.
The referendum outlined a number of policies in an attempt to gain the locals’ confidence. These policies included the fact that Splash Planet would be self-sustaining and would not cost the taxpayers any money.
