If you haven’t visited Aqua Park Rutland since its launch back in 2016 then you’re in luck! Back with a super soaking splash, the UK’s largest inflatable aqua park returns to Rutland Water in Leicestershire for its third season – including the launch of the Beast II, sure to get adrenaline junkies hearts’ racing.

The new version of the inflatable water park opens to the public from 26 May 2018 for four months of summer fun. The park is now a staggering 100m wide and features climbing walls, trampolines, balance bars, rockers, rollers and the UK’s biggest jumps and slides. The Beast, a towering five-meter-high platform returns and this year has been upgraded with a six-meter-long blast bag, The Beast II will see thrill seekers launched several meters into the air and plummet towards the water to create off-the-scale splashes.

Thankfully it looks like we’re set for some good weather coming up, but whatever the weather, Aqua Park Rutland will offer one of the most entertaining ways to enjoy the Great British outdoors this summertime. Featuring obstacles such as Cyclone, the colossal Revolution, Jungle Jim, Summit Express and Action Tower XL, there’s huge potential for some total wipeouts and epic fails.
