Friends, splashers, flippers & floppers! Welcome to the Aqua Park Group Blog, We are starting a new blog to give you the inside scoop on all things Aqua Park, from tips and tricks, detailed visitor info, news and events, and never seen before behind the scenes access to The Aqua Park Group team.
Where did it all start?
Started by watersports enthusiasts in 2016 at Rutland Water, our family-run company has grown to x2 UK locations employing upwards of 120 staff during the season. We train & develop our people season on season, becoming the first UK Aqua Park operator as an approved trained centre for lifeguarding courses by the RLSS UK. We now train our staff in house in the UK’s leading lifeguarding qualification. Following this, in 2019 we were instrumental in designing the framework for the RLSS UK Aqua Park Accreditation Scheme and become one of the first operators to be awarded it. In 2019, our Rutland and Cardiff locations became the first UK Aqua Parks to be awarded the accreditations from The British Activity Providers Association & Learning Outside the Classroom. We have been instrumental in both the design of the framework and piloting the programme becoming one of the first UK operators to receive Operational Approved Status in 2019. This gives you, the customer, confidence that when you attend one of our parks that you will be in safe hands! The majority of our seasonal staff are university students, being part of their professional development as young people is something we are proud of.
To provide a 5 star experience for all our customers in an environment in which they feel safe and respected.
Safety | Adventure | Respect | Inclusive | Enjoyment | Comradery
Groups, families, adults, children & adrenaline junkies have been drawn to open water sports for generations. How and what they play on has changed over the years, but the core values of enjoying time spent on the water sharing laughs, making memories and forging bonds between them hasn’t. We are always looking for ways to lead the industry by improving safety standards, investing in our people, improving the customer experience and designing bespoke equipment & activities.
We’re really looking forward to sharing some stories with you and hope to see you out on the water very soon,
Aqua Park Team
