It’s warmer in the water than it is outside, say Aqua Parcs

If you’re looking for somewhere to warm up, ‘get in the water’, say the team at Aqua Parcs at Willen Lake.


For the last week, the temperature of the water has consistently been 18.1 degrees – currently warmer than the land temperature of 16 degrees. And it’s only going to get warmer!

The team released their first aerial shot of the stunning park – bigger than last year’s by some way and just in time for half term. And what better way to entertain the kids than with a giant, 300-metre, inflatable assault course at one of MK’s biggest attractions?

But it’s not just for families – Aqua Parcs is now taking bookings for party groups, schools and corporate team building activities! Oh ‘buoy’, they’ll love it!

With four new obstacles and 100 extra metres compared to last year, the 2019 Aqua Parcs course took a team of eight a whopping 75 hours to put together, inflate and secure.

But now it’s ready and open for business. The people of MK are set to be amazed by the new s-shaped Apex 30 and steep, sloping Apex 20 obstacles, along with The Diamond – a 4’ tall, 18”-wide, dual-route obstacle that will test guests’ concentration to the max.

Not forgetting the piece de resistance – the 16ft high Freefall Surpreme! There are climbing ladders, slides, play spaces and challenges galore that will have guests laughing their heads off from start to finish.

“We’re now open for another season and it’s brilliant to see how much fun our guests are having already,” said Joe Grix, co-owner of the park. “We’re excited to have some ‘UK firsts’ at Aqua Parcs Milton Keynes. The new layout will give customers the best experience yet, with plenty of never-seen-before thrills for people who came last year. It’s going to be a great summer!”

Aqua Parcs is suitable for ages six and up. It is patrolled by trained lifeguards at each section, but participants must be able to swim 25m unaided.

Wet suit hire is included within the £20 fee and each session lasts one hour. After the safety brief, participants swim 10 metres out to the park where they will start exploring and get wet and wild!

Aqua Parcs is open seven days a week until September. For more information or to book, visit
