What is the price of Aquadash Adventure?

AquaDash Adventure sessions are £8.99 for all customers, regardless of age.

What should I wear?

You can either wear appropriate swimwear (as you would for a general swimming session) or - as you will be required to wear a buoyancy aid - you may choose to wear t-shirt and shorts for your session if this is more comfortable. 

Glasses and all jewellery, including rings and stud earrings, must be removed for safety reasons. We have lockers available in the changing village (£1 coin required) if you need to store any valuables.

Are there changing rooms and showers?

Customers can use changing rooms and showers as normal. We have lockers available in the changing village (£1 coin required) if you need to store any valuables.

What time should I arrive?

Please arrive on site 15 minutes before your session start time, and it is essential to check-in in the reception area (there will be a member of staff there to meet you). This gives you time to receive your buoyancy aid and be ready for the safety brief.

What happens if I'm late for my session?

Unfortunately, if you are late arriving and miss the safety briefing, you will not be able to take part in that session.

I have children of different ages, can they play together?

Yes, it is one of the few activities that groups, and families can do together at the same time. The adult to child ratio for the use of the AquaDash/AquaDash Adventure is as follows:

  • 6 to 8-year-old – 1 adult to 2 children.
  • 9+ years are able to use AquaDash Adventure

It is the parent/guardian’s responsibility to ensure that their children are old enough to participate.

Can anyone do the Aquadash Adventure?

It doesn’t matter how small, daring or inexperienced you might be, AquaDash Adventure will appeal to all fitness levels and swimming abilities.

AquaDash Adventure is not recommended for participants who: are pregnant, have neck or back problems, heart problems or have had recent surgery. You should consider your physical condition and limitations - and those of any children you are responsible for - before deciding to participate.

What if a member of my party has special needs/concerns?

For children up to and including the age of 8 an adult will have to accompany them on AquaDash Adventure. The ratio of an adult accompanying children is 1 adult to every 2 children.
