VIDEO: Aqua Park Rutland set to open this weekend
There are just a few two days until Aqua Park Rutland opens and excitement is building.
Whitwell shore at Rutland Water has been a hive of activity over the last few weeks with sports management specialist Sports Booker Operations Limited working hard to get the huge inflatable park ready to open on Saturday.
On Friday (July 8) there will be a private press day and the team from the Rutland Times will be among the first to have a go at the 16 obstacles, which offer the chance to climb, jump, crawl, chute, launch, slide and splash.
And then on Saturday (July 9), it will open to the public for eight weeks of super-soaking fun - whatever the weather.
A spokesman for Aqua Park Rutland said: “We’re expecting a busy opening weekend and people are advised to book in advance to avoid disappointment.
“Turning up on the day is not recommended.”
The best way to check availability is to visit the website booking page at https://apr.sports-booker.com.
The adventure course, built in close consultation with Anglian Water, which owns Rutland Water, provides an action-packed experience that offers challenge to all, from the averagely active through to super fitness fans.
Tickets for the park are priced at £15, offering a 55-minute experience to tackle the awesome obstacles, balance beams, climbing walls, trampolines and blast bags.
Designed for a super-soaking good time, with the emphasis on splashings of fun for all, the course features obstacles such as Cyclone, the colossal Revolution, Jungle Jim and the Summit Express which promises to deliver a really splashy landing.
As an active attraction, visitors to Aqua Park Rutland need to be ready for the physical challenge and must be aged six and over 1.1m in height and able to swim 50m in a buoyancy vest to take part.
Buoyancy vests are provided and wetsuits are available to hire additionally for £5.
