Funtastic Summer at Discovery Bay 2018


Go on an adventure at the Jurassic Water Park and
exhilarating inflatables throughout the Summer

What better way to beat the summer heat than with refreshing, fun-filled water and beach activities
with your family? This summer, Discovery Bay has prepared many exciting games for you to enjoy a
Funtastic Summer!

From 21 July to 12 August, Tai Pak Beach will turn into a Jurassic Water Park with a series of exhilarating
inflatables installed. At the centre of the park lies the Jurassic Water Slide, where children can enjoy
thrilling dash as well as a breath-taking sea view. Other than that, energetic sporting activities including
Little Captain’s Party and the Mini Summer Olympics will give children an unforgettable summer
experience. Kids can also work together with their parents as a team and “roll” on water in the Family
Roller. Every weekend during the event period, a Funtastic Summer‧Joyful Carnival will take place at the
DB North Plaza, filled with fun games that will test children’s coordination and reflexes.

For a total of three weeks and spanning four weekends, Funtastic Summer is open to public for free4.
Besides exciting summer games, families can also indulge themselves in a wide selection of international
cuisines at the renowned oceanfront alfresco dining hotspot D’Deck or DB North Plaza; or simply unwind,
relax and soak up the sun with a cozy stay at Auberge Discovery Bay Hong Kong.

1) Jurassic Water Slides 1 - Take a refreshing dive into fun and action

2) Family Roller2 - A test of teamwork for the family
Next to the Jurassic Water Slides are gigantic inflatable rollers that give you and your little ones a taste of
how it feels to “walk” on water. It takes strength and balance to get rolling, so children will have to work
together as a team to drift across the pool. Parents can also join in the fun and have a rolling good time
with their kids.
