Floating aqua park heading to Albert Dock in 2018

A new floating aqua park boasting a 92-metre inflatable assault course will open at Albert Dock in 2018.

The Adventure Dock Co will operate from May until October and will include food stalls, a wetsuit store and beach-style changing huts.

Located on Duke’s Dock, in between Albert Dock and Kings Dock, the new attraction comes from Industry Wake, the company behind Liverpool Wake Park at Liverpool Watersports Centre in Queen’s Dock.

Tim Woodhead, managing director of Industry Wake, says: “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, adds: “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.”

The Adventure Dock Co will open on 5 May 2018.
