SA’s first floating AquaPark to add some sparkle to the summer

StokeCity WakePark has long been one of Midrand’s “best-kept secrets”. Offering cable skiing, wake-boarding and knee boarding, the park also boasts a Stand Up Paddling course and an open-water swimming route.

Starting this spring, the park will become home to South Africa’s first floating AquaPark, and it promises to be one of Gauteng’s wettest and most entertaining family attractions.
Kids, families and weekend warriors alike should delight in the Aqua-Park’s many obstacle-course style features. The new attraction not only provides a floating playground, but balances athletic ability with plenty of slips, thrills, and spills. “It’s like being a contestant on ‘Total Wipe Out’ (the TV game show) but much less intense,” notes Kyle Holtzhauzen from WaterPlaySA, the official Wibit Distributors in South Africa.

The attraction features a series of inflatable slides, runways, jumping pillows and bouncers all connected together and floating in a large, clean and refreshing lake. Additional obstacles include swings, ramps, jumps, ladders, a trampoline, a slide, wiggle bridges, and more.

“We are extremely excited about the new addition to the park,” says Chantal Holtzhauzen, StokeCity WakePark’s Marketing Manager. “People in Gauteng are always on the look-out for some exciting, alternative entertainment and we know the AquaPark will be a hit with people from all walks of life.”
The AquaPark will be open to the public, Tuesdays to Sunday, for the entire summer. Each session is 50 minutes long, and starts on the hour, every hour, from 10am to 5pm. Each session can accommodate up to 65 people. Revelers are encouraged to ensure they arrive at least half and hour before their session starts, if they have pre-booked.
