Operations Manager Kevin Parker said, “Activities will run as normal all day with the addition of late-night sessions allowing visitors to enjoy the sunset out on the reservoir”.

With something for everybody, visitors can book laser tag, soft play, fishing, paddleboarding, sailing, kayaking, and the Aqua Park, which returned to Bewl Water this month.

Boasting 3,000 square metres of inflatable fun, the Total Wipeout-style floating obstacle course features a range of water-based attractions including an XXL action tower, springboard, slide, hurdles, and much more.
