A giant floating playground is set to open in Blackpool next week, with an inflatable obstacle course, paddle boarding, and loads more.

Wild Shore already has sites in Delamere and Dundee and is now branching out again.

Taking over the old Blackpool Wake Park site, the huge ‘water-based adventure hub’ will take the plunge and open on Wednesday 29 May.

As well as the inflatable aqua park, where visitors can slide, bounce, and clamber over a bouncy obstacle course, there’ll be loads more water-based activities.

The adrenaline-charged activities also include wakeboarding using an overhead cable which pulls you over the surface of the lake.


They even guarantee that if you can’t stand up on your first session, with the help of instructors, you’ll get your money back.

There are stand up paddleboards you can rent to explore the water, or there are fully-guided sessions which will take you on a tour of the lake.


And then if you’ve always fancied trying wild open-water swimming, Wild Shore Blackpool offers a safe and secure environment for a dip, with safety instructors on SUP boards and rest pontoons half way around each course.

The Aqua Park itself has a number of Ninja Warrior-style features including Tire Run, Ninja-Jump and Eagles Nest to test your balance, agility, and bravery.

The new Wild Shore Blackpool water park is located at Ream Hills Holiday Park.


It’s set to open on 29 May – you can find out more and book a ticket here.
