Excitement levels up for the new floating aqua park coming to Albert Dock Liverpool
2018 is looking huge for Liverpool, not only will we see a host ov event to celebrate the 10th anniversary of our Capital Culture status, but we are getting a brand new attraction on Albert Dock.
The new Adventure Dock will be a floating aqua park, boasting a 92-metre inflatable assault course.
The Adventure Dock Co will operate throughout the summer months from May-October, giving the public the opportunity to enjoy water-based activities on Liverpool’s iconic, UNESCO World Heritage waterfront.
The course will be located on Duke’s Dock, in between Albert Dock (home to museums, attractions, restaurants, bars and shops) and King’s Dock (home to ACC Liverpool and the Wheel of Liverpool), with food concessions, a wetsuit store and beach-style changing huts.
Tim Woodhead, managing director of Industry Wake, the company behind the new attraction, which also operates Liverpool Wake Park at Liverpool Watersports Centre in neighbouring Queen’s Dock, said:
“We are over the moon to bring this fantastic new attraction to Duke’s Dock, a fun and action-filled, aqua park that will create a “splash” in the city next summer!
“We have worked at several iconic locations in the past, but none as prestigious or historic as Liverpool’s waterfront. Our aqua park is something that will excite those young and old, and I can guarantee that our obstacles will leave thrill-seekers wanting to return over and over again for more!”
Sue Grindrod, chief executive of Albert Dock Liverpool, said:
“We look forward to working in partnership with The Adventure Dock Co and Canal & River Trust, to animate the water space and create something new for visitors to enjoy at Albert Dock.”
