Unseasonal iceberg on Loch Ken as water park is launched

There has certainly been some unseasonal weather recently, but a 20 foot iceberg floating on Loch Ken in Galloway is surely taking it too far.

Thankfully it’s part of the new Water Park to be launched on Saturday 1 June at Galloway Activity Centre - it’s of the inflatable variety and not at all icy.

The iceberg is one of eight individual inflatables, which form the new Total Wipeout-inspired Water Park, which will officially open on Saturday. A water rocket, giant castle tower, 20 foot water slide, a floating trampoline and a giant airbag (human catapult) will all be launched into the water on Loch Ken.

The water park will be open daily (wind allowing) during June, July and August and groups of up to 20 can enjoy the fun at one time.

The inflatables are anchored to keep them upright and are deflated each evening.

Galloway Activity Centre is already well known for its family-friendly activities including sailing, windsurfing, powerboating, kayaking, canoeing, outdoor laser quest, archery, mountain biking, orienteering, climbing/abseiling and more.

Over 10,000 people visit the centre each year and travel from all over the UK to take part in their own outdoor adventure.

The Water Park is open from 1 June, daily from 10am-7.30pm. To book a bounce, slide and splash call 01644 420626 or go to www.lochken.co.uk for more information about Galloway Activity Centre.
