    Aqua Challenge

    Welcome to the Aqua Challenge pool inflatable! Children and adults can slip, slide and splash their way from start to finish on this insanely fun inflatable assault course.

    Aqua Challenge is available for children aged 6 years old and above as well as adults. Each person will be provided with a branded life jacket, making our new assault course safe and fun.

    Weak Swimmers Need Not Apply!

    All participants must be able to swim 25m unaided. Bathers may be required to demonstrate their competence via a pool test before the session starts. Failing this basic pool test mean you can’t have a go and you will be given a full refund for the Aqua Challenge session.
