Sydney to get its first WIBIT aqua park
March 17, 2017

Ongoing growth in the inflatable aquatic playground sector will see a new attraction, Aqua Park (AQPK) open at Sydney’s Northbridge Baths on Saturday 8th April.

The all -new inflatable Aqua Park will operate through the Easter Holidays until Sunday 23rd April, with participants ages 6 years invited to come and challenge themselves on the brand-new obstacle course.

Park owner operators Colin Kane and Louise Magee are no strangers to the aquatic industry with over 40 years’ of collective experience in the industry with backgrounds in both operations management and instruction of swimming and water safety in some of Australia’s largest facilities.

Kane and Magee emphasise that safety will be Aqua Park’s number one priority with professional lifeguards on hand to oversee operations and all participants being be required to wear a life jacket as an added safety precaution.

Magee adds “the course is not for the faint hearted – this is a fun-filled work out and will challenge even the most conditioned athletes.”
