Bluewater Shopping Centre Dives Into Summer with New Inflatable Aqua Park and Cold Water Swimming Attraction

Bluewater Shopping Centre Set to Welcome New Inflatable Aqua Park and Cold Water Swimming Attraction

Bluewater Shopping Centre, one of Kent’s largest shopping destinations, is set to welcome a new and exciting addition to its already impressive lineup of attractions. Hangloose Adventure, the company behind various adrenaline-fueled activities at Bluewater, has submitted plans for an inflatable aqua park and a cold water swimming route, as well as a floating observation deck.

According to the proposed plans, the inflatable aqua park, called “Summer Aqua Park,” will be an obstacle course for up to 65 people at a time. It will feature towering water slides and tricky obstacle courses, making it an ideal attraction for friends and families. The aqua park will operate between May 1 and November 5 and will also include a disabled lift, access ramps, and steps.

In addition to the aqua park, Hangloose Adventure is also seeking permission for a cold water swimming route for up to 30 people at a time. The route will be marked by buoys and will run from 8am. The company also plans to construct a floating observation deck on the lake, with a capacity of 153 people. This deck will offer a panoramic view of the activities at Bluewater.

The proposed plans have already received positive feedback, with Bluewater’s managing director, Brian Phelps, stating that the new attraction will be a great addition to the shopping center. He also mentioned that the company has taken steps to ensure the development does not encroach on the Bluewater Nature Trail and will actually increase the ecology of the area by 10%, in accordance with Biodiversity Net Gain legislation.

Dartford council leader Jeremy Kite has also invited the public to share their views on the proposed plans before they make a decision. The council has received only two responses so far, one in favor and one against the development.

If approved, the new water-based attraction is expected to open later this summer and will offer free swims to locals. Bluewater Shopping Centre, which opened in 1999, has undergone several changes over the years, including a transformation into an entertainment and leisure-based venue. With the addition of the inflatable aqua park and cold water swimming attraction, Bluewater is set to become an even more popular destination for families and thrill-seekers alike.
