Got your summer holiday vacay sorted? There will be a new player on the Gold Coast this summer and it’ll be a world of water fun for the family.

The countdown is well and truly on for the opening of the Gold Coast’s billion-dollar, game-changing Ruby Collection.

Tower 1 apartments (of four towers proposed for the Surfers Paradise site) are set to open this November – just in time for summer and just in time for your Christmas family vacay or any end-of-year staycay, for that matter, to help you recharge the batteries.

The good news is that Ruby guests will be able to enjoy the giant and extremely popular Z4K Water Parks, which feature at the company’s neighbouring sister site at Paradise Resort.

“The Z4K Water Parks are one of the highlight attractions at Paradise Resort and we don’t want our Ruby families missing out on the fun,” says Ruby CEO David Brook. “Although The Ruby Apartments will boast a very impressive 21m salt-water lap pool, we know that kids will be looking next door at the giant water playground, busting to get over the fence.”

Guests will have easy access through an adjoining gate between the two properties using their room key.

The Main Water Park is three storeys high on multi levels, complete with a myriad of slides, water cannons and climbing frames designed to entertain and engage the whole family in aquatic fun. Topping it all off is a giant bucket that fills with 600 litres of water before emptying every few minutes over guests below in one enormous splash! The Junior Water Park is a smaller version including a slippery slide, water cannons and giant tipping water bucket.  There’s also a paddling area with a gently sloping beach entry.

When Paradise Resort closes (on a date to be confirmed) the Z4K Water Parks will remain part of the Ruby Apartments for a few years until they are replaced with an even larger structure.

As well as having access to the Z4K Water Parks, guests staying at Ruby Apartments will also have access to many of the other family-friendly facilities and activities on offer at Paradise Resort. Think Dusty’s Playground, the Jungle Gym, rock climbing and Planet Chill ice skating rink.
