Huge New Waterpark With Biggest Wave Pool In UK Opening
An enormous new waterpark is opening in the UK and just reading about it has got us wishing we were kids again.
The Wave in Coventry is set to feature six high-octane water slides, the UK's biggest wave pool, and a lazy river. There'll also be a state of-the-art gym, fitness suite and cafe... so something for all ages.
The game-changing waterpark is set to open on Monday 21st October - good news for parents as its just in time for half term.
Psst...We have exciting news to share about the future of Pretty 52
For the thrill seekers among you, the rides sound as epic as they come.
There's The Crestar, which has two giant globes that use lighting effects and other surprises to excite sliders on the way down.
Then there's The Rapids, the 'water-coaster' in which powerful jets hurl riders uphill before dropping them down through tight corners and tunnels. This one is best rode with a friend or family member.
For those that like to get dizzy, there's The Cyclone. The clue is in the name as riders whirl round an open bowl.
Or more advanced riders can tackle the park's highest slide, The Torrent. Riders must prepare "to have the floor beneath them disappear" as they're plunged downwards.
Finally there's the The Riptide, where riders grab a tire and jump down watery ramp (and prepare for a return journey).
One of the most popular attractions is sure to be the wave pool, set to be the UK's biggest, which will churn 20 million litres of water everyday.

In other waterpark news, another huge waterpark was revealed to be coming to Bournemouth in 2023 and fans are already comparing it to "something out of Indiana Jones".
The attraction, which will cover 75 acres of land across the New Forest and Poole, will be the largest in the UK, and has been named Elysium Waterpark - after the Greek concept for the afterlife.
While the park is still in the early stages of conception, artwork reveals an incredible vision for the park.
It's set to be packed full of massive water slides, rapids and little and large swimming pools to splash around in, as well as lots of plants and wildlife.
And they plan to use VR and AR technology on some of their rides, so it's sure to be incredible.
Now to find a ten-year-old niece/nephew/random child we can take as an excuse to visit.
