0 78

Sri Lanka’s first water park built and certified to European Health and Safety Standards and an FIA/CIK certified leisure and professional karting track by David Pieris Group leisure cluster formally opened Pearl Bay at Bandaragama.

The facility has four key zones, SplashBay (water slides), SpeedBay (leisure karting), TargetBay (air rifle shooting range) and YumBay (restaurants) as well as relaxation and activity areas for the entire family.

Chairman of DP Group Leisure cluster Ramli Mohamad said, “This is the outcome of the vision and foresight of our founder David Pieris, who saw the need to provide leisure and entertainment options for both domestic and international tourists for the sustainability and economic development of our Nation.

The project was significantly delayed due to COVID and other external factors we are all very much aware of; but we are delighted to finally give Sri Lankan a truly international leisure experience. A great deal of planning and investment has gone into this, and we are truly grateful to the young and young-at-heart team that made this a reality against all odds.”

The Park will open to the public on January 26. SplashBay the water-based zone comprises four towers and sixteen slides of different thrill levels.

The waterpark includes a gravity drop slide of 88 m, a loophole slide of 120 m, a 40 m mat racer slide and a separate kiddies area consisting of a four-slide water play structure. No expenses were spared when designing and building this facility with customer experience and safety being paramount. The slides were manufactured and commissioned by Arihant Industrial Corporation Limited and after extensive testing the facility was awarded “Fit for Use Certification.”

Subsequently, TÜV Nord, an international not for profit certification organisation sent their team to carry out extensive onsite inspection and ensure compliance to European safety standards. Pearl Bay, which also incorporates the karting facility previously known as the Sri Lanka Karting Circuit, is spread over 23 acres.

The location is also available for events of any size from corporate to individual celebrations, with purpose-built entertainment areas and an in-house events team to cater to any requirement.

“Given Sri Lanka’s limited experience in this area, we sought international expertise every step of the way, and we even went as far as to hire a core team from overseas who have extensive experience and expertise in managing water parks and leisure facilities.”
