Aqua Park Rutland pledges to inflate charity funds

Aqua Park Rutland launches at Rutland Water for its third super soaking season with a pledge to raise vital funds for local charity, The Air Ambulance Service.

On 23rd May 2018, Aqua Park Rutland welcomed over 200 people from local sports teams, businesses and schools to be the first to splash out on this year’s wet and wild obstacles, including a brand new super slide, aptly named The Rutland Mammoth by competition winner Olivier Delavaloire from Corby.

With the goal of raising £1,700 for The Air Ambulance Service, the cost of funding a mission, Aqua Park Rutland is encouraging visitors to donate whatever they can to this much needed local cause, as they enjoy the thrills and spills of the park this summer.

Open to the public from 26 May until the 23rd September 2018, the park is a staggering 100m wide and features climbing walls, trampolines, balance bars, rockers, rollers and the UK’s biggest slides. Whatever the weather, Aqua Park Rutland will offer one of the most entertaining ways to enjoy the Great British outdoors this summertime.

Due to the high interest already received, visitors are encouraged to pre-book at www.aquaparkrutland.co.uk to avoid disappointment. Tickets for the park are priced at £20 off-peak and £22 peak for a 50-minute session.

As an active attraction, visitors to Aqua Park Rutland will need to be ready for the physical challenge! To take park, visitors need to be aged eight and over, 1.3m tall and able to swim 50 metres unaided in a buoyancy vest. Buoyancy vests are provided, and wetsuits are included in the ticket price.

Jo Payne, National Partnerships Manager for The Air Ambulance Service, said: “We’re delighted to be supported for a third year by something as exciting as Aqua Park Rutland.

“We’re looking forward to another successful season at Rutland Water and I’m sure it will be a very popular and thrilling attraction that people can enjoy while supporting the local air ambulance.”

Richard Drinkwater, co-founder of Aqua Park Rutland, said: “We have supported The Air Ambulance Service as our chosen charity since we first launched Aqua Park Rutland in 2016. It is our pleasure to continue to support this vital local service and encourage visitors to join us in our efforts.

“This year’s Aqua Park is brimming with fun and challenging obstacles, and we are expecting to see lots of people enjoying this awesome experience as the summer rolls out. There really is no ‘wetter’ way to have fun and raise money for a life-saving cause at the same time.”
