Cornwall’s first giant inflatable Aqua Park has become a huge success and already smashed targets for the year after welcoming its 15,000th guest on to the water since it opened in April.
The floating Aqua Park at Retallack Resort and Spa near Padstow has been bounced on, slid down and conquered by thousands of groups, birthday parties and businesses, making it one of the region’s most popular adventure activities this summer.
The course, which can take up to 65 people at once and is designed for adrenaline junkies aged seven and over, features a giant trampoline, climbing walls, slides, a ‘blast bag’ and a challenging balance beam.
Amy Keyter, Marketing Director at Retallack Resort, said: “The numbers have gone way beyond our expectations. The sessions have been jam packed with individuals and especially groups, businesses have really taken to it as a fun way of having some team bonding away from the office this summer. We’ve even had sunglass brand Oakley down on a team building day. People have been loving it – even on the bad weather days, if you’re going to get wet why not do it in style!”
The Aqua Park complements Retallack’s other hugely popular outdoor water-based experiences: the well-known surf simulator, The FlowRider, and the 2.0 cable wake boarding system.
Prices for the Aqua Park are £15 per person for 1 hour with discounts available on group bookings including birthday parties, hen weekends and corporate team building days. Guests over 65 pay £6.50.
During the summer holidays, the Aqua Park will be open every day, with hour sessions running from 10am – 7pm.
