Sun City’s Valley of Waves Set To Reopen


Sun City’s popular Valley of Waves is ready to reopen on 23 September 2020 just in time for Heritage Day.

Speaking about the reopening, Sun City General Manager Brett Hoppé says, “The Valley of Waves is one of our most popular attractions, so we’re delighted that we can open it in time for Heritage Day. We have been inundated with enquiries from people wanting to know when it will reopen.”

The facility was closed at the beginning of lockdown and, despite Sun City’s recent re-opening, Valley of Waves remained closed while the maintenance crew upgraded all of the wave generating mechanisms.

The Sun Vacation Club is fully booked from 20 September and its guests, many comprising of families, are looking forward to utilising the Valley of Waves during their stay, especially those of the Heritage Day long weekend.

Get Set For 6-Foot Swells

The wave pool contains 10-million litres of water and creates up to 6-foot swells high enough for surfing, as they move away from the dam wall at 35km per hour to subside onto a sandy beach, 120m away.

On Wednesday 23 September, the Valley of Waves will operate normally between 9am and 6pm. From the Heritage Day Public Holiday on 24 September through to Saturday 26 September, the facility will be open to all residents and visitors between 9am and 5pm.

It will reopen between 6pm and 9pm for the exclusive use of hotel guests and Sun Vacation Club residents. Operating hours will return to 9am until 6pm from Sunday 27 September.

“We look forward to making some other exciting new announcements soon,” said Hoppé.
