Jamberoo Action Park launches industry’s first Online PhotoBooth
In an Australian theme park industry first, Jamberoo Action Park has today launched an Online PhotoBooth store which lets guests view and purchase photos taken of them at the Park when offsite. All photos from the Park will be visible via the Online PhotoBooth, hosted on the company’s webpage, including action shots captured on the Funnel Web, and snaps taken with the Park’s mascot – Sammy the Shark, among others.
Guests will have the ability to scroll through all photos taken at the Park the day they were there, ensuring they don’t miss any images showcasing their in-park experience. They can then choose to purchase hard copy or digital versions in a variety of sizes. Physical prints will be dispatched to customers along with a souvenir frame, within 24 hours.
Digital files will be available for immediate download after the purchase, and are able to be shared on customers’ social media outlets. Hard copy prints start at $14.95 and digital at $5.95.
"Some guests are exhausted after an action-filled day at the Park, so we’ve launched the Online PhotoBooth to let them review and purchase photos of their day when they’re in the comfort of their own home,” said Jamberoo Action Park’s, Executive Director, Dax Eddy.
"The ease involved in using Online PhotoBooth let’s guests re-live the fun they had at the Park, when it is convenient for them after they have returned from their visit to us.”
The Online PhotoBooth currently has all the photos taken at the Park from 15 December 2012 for viewing and purchase.

World’s biggest water ride opens at Jamberoo Action Park
Jamberoo Action Park is preparing for a huge Summer as they launch two thrilling water attractions. The first is the LONGEST and BIGGEST water ride of its kind in the world – Funnel Web. Next there’s Banjo’s Billabong – the LARGEST interactive water play area built in the Southern Hemisphere, both opening for the Summer from 8 December.
Funnel Web will leave riders wide-eyed and holding their breath as they zoom through darkness at an amazing 30 km an hour. Twisting and turning down the water slide’s 280 metres in approximately 37 seconds, riders will hit multiple, gut-wrenching, zero-gravity moments as they become sucked into the Funnel Web’s burrow, only to be spat out and saturated at the end.
Banjo’s Billabong will also thrill as it’s packed with water slides, water cannons, bridge climbs and spray features. A huge bucket that crowns the area tips 1,200 litres of water down on aqua-loving guests every 10 minutes, providing hours of splashable fun for all ages.
Dax Eddy, Jamberoo Action Park Executive Director said, “We’re excited to officially open Stage One of our Kangaroo Island expansion to the public this Summer.
Funnel Web and Banjo’s Billabong are world-class water rides and attractions that will wow guests of all ages. We can’t wait for this to be one of the best Summers ever at Jamberoo Action Park!” These new rides are part of the Park’s $11.6 million expansion, and now join attraction favourites including, Taipan, Outback Bay, Billabong Beach and the iconic Bobsled.
Whilst spinning and splashing, guests can also bop along to tracks thanks to in-Park DJ Davy Gee. For Park information and access to the new mobile e-ticketing system, guests can download the Jamberoo Smartphone App. In three easy steps guests can purchase mobile e-tickets online via their smartphone and receive priority entry.
Guests can also be transported to and from the Park to Kiama Railway Station on the Jamberoo Summer School Holiday Bus Service.

Expansions start at Jamberoo Action Park
The first stage of Jamberoo Action Park’s long-awaited expansion plans have commenced, with preliminary site works underway. Full construction will start over the coming weeks to develop ‘Kangaroo Island’, which is set to become the location for the most exciting, high-thrill, water-based rides ever built in NSW.
The $11.6 million project includes new rides, a 1,700 space carpark and road upgrades on Jamberoo Road to allow faster access into the park.
Dax Eddy, General Manager of Jamberoo Action Park, commented: “It’s fantastic that construction has finally commenced and we are now in the process of building the most thrilling water ride experiences ever seen in NSW.”
“In stage 1, we will build an Interactive Water Play Area, that will be the largest ever built in Australia, as well as a Tornado water slide – a raft based ride that loops and twists before dropping into a huge funnel then shooting out into a splash pool – there’s some incredibly exciting things ahead!”
Jamberoo Action Park’s expansion program will create upwards of 80 local construction jobs with the Talon Construction Group awarded the contract to build stage 1.
