Want to have a go at a Total Wipeout style challenge near Ely? You shore can now!
Or at least, on Saturday, May 12, when Cambridge Aqua Park opens to the public.
The inflatable obstacle course has now been installed in Stretham, with a “few more finishing touches to the site” to be completed before the grand launch.
That weekend will be a busy one in East Cambridgeshire, coinciding with the open weekend at Ely’s new leisure centre, The Hive, before it officially opens on Monday, May 14.
Cambridge Aqua Park, on the same site as Hannam’s Wake Hub, is hoped to draw thousands of visitors to the area.
The family owned lakeside attraction, off the A10, is now taking bookings for its hour-long sessions, which will cater for up to 60 people at a time, aged eight or over.
There will also be morning sessions for kids as young as six, providing they are confident in the water.
Although life jackets and wetsuit hire is included in the £20 price, those taking part have to be able to swim to the inflatables.
Manager Jess Hannam hopes Cambridge Aqua Park will appeal to a wide cross section of visitors, from those seeking stag and hen do’s with a difference to local people looking for a fun, family activity.
People will be able to book the park for birthday parties and other events, with special discounts available for group bookings.
Jess and her team plan to test out the obstacle course before it opens to the public.
Cambridge Aqua Park will initially be open during weekends but throughout the summer holidays it will be open every day from 10am to 6pm.
It will close for the winter in late September.
