Scotland’s first ‘aqua park’ is set to open in Dundee as the city’s five-star water attraction at Victoria dock expands to provide more activities for thrill-seekers.

The park is made up of over a dozen floating obstacles to give a similar experience to those challenges seen on TV programmes like Total Wipeout and It’s a Knockout.

Based at the Foxlake centre, the park aims to test balance and agility as visitors try to navigate the course without landing in the water.

Foxlake already has a number of water sports on offer, including wakeboarding and paddleboard yoga.

Callum Mark, director of Foxlake Adventures, told the Courier: “We are really looking forward to launching our new urban aqua park, featuring a mix of challenging obstacles and slides which are loads of fun for both kids and adults alike.

“It’s also really exciting to have one of the first aqua parks in the UK to be based in a city environment.

“We are confident our fun-filled floating playground will complement all of our other watersports including wakeboarding and ringo rides and make for a great summer day out for the whole family.”

The centre will provide Wet-suits, helmets and buoyancy-aids for the one-hour sessions in the park.
