Have you tried: New aqua park in Dundee?

Written by Fiona

Foxlake Adventures has launched Scotland’s first city centre water park. The new Aqua Park is located at the waterfront in Dundee and is part of Foxlake Dundee Wakeboarding Centre.

The Aqua Park is a floating adventure course featuring 18 obstacles. Wearing wetsuits, adventurers, aged from eight, can tackle the inflatable obstacles, such as the Moon Jump, Neptune’s Steps, The Tire Run and the Mighty Mount Rainer.

The bespoke Aqua Park tests participants’ balance and agility as they try to conquer the obstacles of varying shapes and sizes by climbing and sliding their way around the course.

The ultimate aim is to stay out of the water but if you fall in you have another challenge – to climb back on to the adventure course.

The Aqua Park can accommodate a maximum of 24 people at one time.

Callum Mark, director of Foxlake Adventures, said: “We are delighted to launch the latest feature to our site on Dundee’s waterfront.

“The Aqua Park, which is receiving fantastic feedback, really complements our other watersports, including the wakeboarding and ringo rides.

“We think it’s a great place to spend a full day out with the family this summer.”

More great activities to try

The Aqua Park is the latest addition to the Foxlake Dundee Wakeboarding Centre at City Quay, which opened last year.

Wakeboarders are pulled across the water’s surface on wakeboards by an overhead cable, with a feel similar to surfing or snowboarding.
