Instructor-led activities

Especially for the most active and adventurous amongst you, we have a programme of START instructor-led activities on the Park. Our exhilarating programme, designed for all the family, includes both ‘Active’ and ‘Pool’ sessions, all with enthusiastic instructors.

On the Park there are plenty of laid-back activities to enjoy in your own time, but while you’re on holiday it’s always fun to try something new that gets the pulse racing. Our instructor-led activities are a great way for all family members to step outside their comfort zones.

Our START instructor-led activities are categorised into ‘Active’ and ‘Pool’ sessions, which isn’t to imply that the pool-based activities are anything other than super energetic. Whichever session you book, you’d better be ready for action.

Pool activities

Our aquatic activities include some of the following:

Aqua Jets (20 mins)

Aqua Jets are a great way to have fun in the water. In this session you’ll learn the basics of using an Aqua Jet, which is a handheld device that propels you through the water.

Aqua Jets are not suitable for non-swimmers and can only be used by those aged nine years old and over.

Inflatable canoes (30 mins)

Have fun in the pool while learning some basic canoeing skills. There is no minimum age for these sessions.

Water Walkerz (5 mins on the water)

Can you stay standing as you bob around on the surface of the pool inside the Waterwalker? There’s only one way to find out.

For this activity each participant books a 15-minute time slot, in which they will have 3-5 mins in the Waterwalker.

The minimum age for participants is five years, and there’s a maximum weight of 15 stone. This activity is not suitable for pregnant women or anyone with high blood pressure, heart or respiratory conditions, epilepsy, back or neck injuries, or those who have had an operation in the last 12 months.

Our instructor-led Active sessions are all about families having fun in a friendly, safe environment. Here are some activities you can enjoy:
