National Aquatic Centre (Aquazone)

Aquazone, at the National Aquatic Centre, is one of the most innovative water parks in Europe. The Centre has over 650,000 visitors per year. Aquazone offers thrills, water adventures and loads of fun. Rides include:

  • Master Blaster (water roller coaster) – with hair-raising drops and thrilling banked curves, this is a rollercoaster-style ride that is a proven hair raiser.
  • Flow Rider (Surfing Machine) – the fun and excitement of surfing, skateboarding and snowboarding in a truly interactive ride.
  • Beach Pool – the waves start in the deep end of the pool and gradually wash up on the centre shoreline, just like the ocean.
  • Pirate Ship – heaven for kids aged 8 and under. Full of safe and fun rides, complete with pirate ship, cannons and small slides.
  • Flumes – continuous fun for all the family on a variety of high speed water Flumes, twisting and turning in a river of bends.
