Family Fun at North Yorkshire Water Park Wykeham.
North Yorkshire Water Park is located off the A170 Thirsk to Scarborough road and is clearly signposted.
There is plenty of free car parking, on site changing rooms, toilets, showers, small cafe for drinks, snacks and picnic facilities.
We booked online beforehand. Allow 45 minutes before your aqua park session. A session lasts an hour and costs £15, which includes a wetsuit, helmet and buoyancy aid.
You need to bring a towel, and swimsuit/trunks. We also had our own swim shoes and would recommend them, but not essential.
The water park staff check your helmet fits correctly, your buoyancy aid is fastened. Then you are given a safety brief.
Just before you enter the lake you are given a wrist band.
At the end of your hour session a whistle is blown, and everyone swims back in.
As you leave the lake you hand your wrist band in.
Other activities at North Yorkshire Water Park include Pedalos, open water swimming, Mini Ports, Kayaking, and Stand Up Paddle Boarding.
There are three fishing lakes separate to the water park.
We will definitely be going back to North Yorkshire Water Park. It is well run, safe, clean, tidy, friendly helpful staff, good value for money and most of all great fun.
