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 Active sessions include games like Aeroball, which is a high-energy sport that blends basketball, volleyball and trampolining – yes, it’s as frantic as it sounds. Like many of our Active sessions, it’s an intense exercise but you don’t need to be a high-level athlete to enjoy it. All of our instructor led activities are mainly about letting go and enjoying yourself.

Our Pool sessions involve taking to the water for a wide range of instructor-led activities. Splash around in an inflatable canoe or have a go on a sea scooter (swimmers only). Kids and adults can’t get enough of these awesome inventions, which propel you over and through the water as you hold on tightly with both hands.

Our START Activities cost £6 per session (1.5hr) or £4.50 per lunchtime/shorter session or Waterwalkerz. They offer guests of all ages an exciting and active holiday experience.

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:

Sea Scooters (1hr/ 1.5 hrs)

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

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

Inflatable canoes (1hr/1.5 hrs)

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

Raft building (1hr/1.5 hrs)

Work as a team to choose your equipment, design and build your raft, and then race across the pool. There is no minimum age for this activity.

Water Walkerz (3-5 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.
