Hundreds to make a splash as Aqua Park opens this weekend

This Saturday, April 29, Bewl Water’s Aqua Park returns to the reservoir after receiving more than a thousand pre-bookings so far.

The ‘Total Wipeout’-style obstacle course in Lamberhurst features a range of attractions.

Operations Manager Kevin Parker explains: “The Aqua Park is an impressive 3,000 square metres of floating, inflatable fun with an XXL action tower, springboard, balance bar, flip mattress, monkey bars, aqua slide, hurdles, and much more.”

Dubbed the “ultimate challenge to enjoy with family and friends”, more than 34,000 water sports fans took to the reservoir last year. According to Mr Parker, tickets are already selling fast for the opening weekend.

“There really isn’t just one kind of person taking part,” he said. “It’s not just for children. We get rugby clubs, groups of friends, parents, team days out. We’ve even had hen parties,”
he said.

Safety need not be a worry either. “Our experienced lifeguards will be on hand to ensure everyone’s safety,” explained Aqua Park Manager Simon Anthony.

“Our staff have undergone refresher training days and all lifeguards have completed a three-day Open Water Lifeguard course with the Royal Lifesaving Society.

“Lifeguard training then takes place once a month, and is ongoing throughout the season,” he added.

The Aqua Park will return on April 29 throughout weekends, before opening for weekdays during the summer, with sessions running from 11am to 3pm.

For those looking to refuel after their 50 minutes of inflatable fun, the dog-friendly Waterfront Café is open every day and serves light bites, tasty snacks, and delicious lunch items like southern fried chicken burgers, loaded nachos and jacket potatoes.

And for those with a sweet tooth, Bewl Water has recently opened a brand-new ice cream parlour too, serving flavours such as triple chocolate, vegan vanilla, raspberry ripple, and salted caramel, alongside milkshakes and slushies.

Children must be aged six and over to use the Aqua Park, and visitors are advised to arrive 45 minutes prior to their park time to watch a safety briefing and change into their wetsuit and buoyancy vest – both included in the ticket price.

Aqua Park tickets can be bought easily online at: They cost £23 per person for a 50-minute session.
