More fun for half the price: Aqua Park returns with 50% off

Thrill-seekers across Kent and Sussex can now add a giant inflatable obstacle course to their list of summer attractions as Bewl Water’s Aqua Park in Lamberhurst returns to the reservoir this April, offering discounted rates for its opening weekend.

The giant ‘Total Wipeout’ style water park has taken nearly 2,000 pre-bookings so far and hit a record-breaking summer last year after temperatures hit 40 degrees. And as installation and preseason checks are in full swing, the reservoir has announced that tickets will be half-price on April 29 and 30.

Housed at southeast England’s largest stretch of open water, the 3,000 square meter water park consists of an ice tower, springboard, balance bar, flip mattress, monkey bars, aqua slide, and lots more promising exhilarating and rewarding summer fun for all the family.

According to Operations Manager Kevin Parker, its popularity has been driven by adventure seekers, as well as sports enthusiasts and wild swimmers.

“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, team days out – we’ve even had hen parties.”

Tickets can be bought easily online 24/7 by visiting where they are on sale at discounted rates.

Usually £23 per person for a 50-minute session, water sports fans can enjoy 50% off when booking tickets for Saturday 29 April or Sunday 30 before April 15.

“We can’t wait to bring Aqua Park back to Bewl Water. Over 34,000 of you joined us last year and tickets are already selling fast for this season”. Mr Parker told the Times.

Children must be aged six plus, 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.

“Our experienced lifeguards will be on hand to ensure everyone’s safety” explained Aqua Park Manager Simon Anthony.

“Our current staff are completing refresher training days and all lifeguards will complete a three-day Open Water Lifeguard course with the Royal Lifesaving Society.

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

The Aqua Park will return on April 29 throughout weekends, before opening for weekdays during the summer with sessions running from 11.00am – 3.00pm.

For those looking to refuel after their 50 minutes of inflatable fun, Bewl Water has introduced a brand-new menu to its onsite restaurant.

Visit the dog-friendly Waterfront Café, open every day, to enjoy ice cream, light bites, and tasty snacks plus more hearty dishes like butcher sausages and mash and beef steak burgers.
