Fancy making a splash?
Ross and I couldn’t wait to dive into this activity, full pun attended! What better way to spend the day together than running around on an inflatable obstacle course at Aqua Parcs which is located on Willen Lakes in Milton Keynes.
Before our session we looked over the lake and I was amazed at the inflatable floating obstacle course that was in front of me and I was so excited to try it out for myself. The sessions are £20 per hour which also includes your buoyancy aid and wetsuit hire but don’t do what I did… I may or may not have put my wetsuit on inside out to begin with. Lucky enough a nice stranger discreetly pointed this out even though the wetsuits are clearly marked which way round they must be, I must have been that excited to get into the water that I didn’t even realise!
There are lockers so you can either take your own padlock or you can purchase one from the reception. After I sorted out my wetsuit we headed down to get our buoyancy aids and we were given a safety briefing, which clearly all Ross took in was “You can push each other in” because he didn’t hesitate as soon as we were on the obstacle course by surprise I was the first one who was launched into the water!
What I liked it once you were on the course you were free to explore it as you wish as there were lots of places you could swim to with step ares to help you back onto the course. Ross has always been more confident around water so I really did challenge myself to be a little less fearless and I had such an amazing time climbing, running and slipping into the water. You could say I had a Whale of a time!
We had so much fun and we even managed to capture us having a SPLASH of a time!
