'Total Wipeout' style waterpark arrives in Doncaster
A ‘Total Wipeout’ style aqua park is set to be a summer feature on the lake at Hatfield Outdoor Activity Centre.
The new attraction is ropening at the venue and will feature huge inflatable slides, inflatable climbing wall, runways and what bosses described as a ‘thrilling’ blast bag.
Bosses at the organisation which run the facility have compared it to the courses that featured on the TV show Total Wipeout, and the facility has been put in place for the re-opening of the centre after lockdown.
Chris Hone, head of commercial development for Doncaster Culture and Leisure Trust (DCLT) who manage the facility, said: “The new Aqua Park fun inflatable is now in pride of place on the lake and we are looking forward to welcoming families wanting to enjoy a new activity during this school holidays.
“This is a great opportunity for people from the local area to rediscover Hatfield Outdoor Activity Centre. As well as the new Aqua Park visitors can try their hand at canoeing, kayaking and open water swimming on the lake.
“The centre is also a very popular camp site which attracts visitors from all over the country. The facilities for camping are great and we’ve introduced a shop and opened a new café bar onsite.
“Hatfield is a great hidden gem and we’re hoping that lots of local people will come and give our activities a go.
“We’ve re-opened the site, in accordance to Government guidelines and have put extra safety and hygiene measures in place to ensure that social distancing measures are in place.”
Sessions for the Aqua Park must be booked online and all participants must be over the age of seven, be able to swim and be over 122cm tall. The fifty-minute sessions cost £15 per person and include wetsuit hire. There is also free parking onsite.
“We are looking forward to welcoming visitors to Hatfield to try out our activities. Bookings for the campsite and the Aqua Park can be made on our website and open water swimming can be made via Swim Your Swim.”
