WEATHER & ENVIRONMENT

Will it be cold ?

The water temperature will vary depending on the weather conditions on the day.
Water temperature is monitored daily and displayed in reception.
Wearing the wetsuit provided will help you to keep warm.
The rain makes the experience on the park different and the slides more slippery.
The only reason the park would close is extreme weather condition such as strong winds or thunderstorm. Every participant would be informed.
The inflatables are constantly wet which keeps the surface cool. If this is a concern for you, you can wear aqua shoes.

You can buy aqua shoes at reception for £5 if needed.
