AFTER a delay to its much-anticipated opening, the Isle of Wight Aqua Park is ready to open its doors.

Based at Tapnell Farm, the new attraction will open tomorrow, Thursday, August 6.

A spokesperson for the park said: "After a stalled opening and working round the clock to get all the boxes ticked, we are proud to announce that we are ready and the booking system is live online with sessions for the public starting tomorrow.

​"Don't forget, all bookings must be made online. We can't wait to welcome you to the park soon."

​​All details, FAQs and information about the facilities are available at ​

​The park was originally due to open on July 27.

It is suitable for families, adults and children aged eight or over.

Each session lasts one hour and includes a safety briefing, wetsuits and buoyancy aids.

It is an all-weather attraction.

In line with Government guidelines, additional safety measures are in place which include:
No more than 6 people per group booking.
Significantly reduced number of customers to 30 per session, giving participants ample space to socially distance, avoid any bottlenecks and still have lots of fun.
Extra time allocated between sessions for sanitising equipment and to avoid cross-over between customers.
Non-contact temperature checks on arrival.

The Aqua Park facilities include a limited number of outdoor showers and toilets, and customers are being encouraged to turn up in their shorts and T-shirt or costume, ready to put a wetsuit and buoyancy aid over the
top. Changing rooms are available but limited to only one ‘bubble’ at a time.
