Alton Water Aqua Park - Stutton

People in Suffolk were very excited to hear about the arrival of the 72-obstable splash park which is at Alton Water.

When thrill seekers are allowed back in the water they can look forward to more than 8,000 square metres of inflatable fun. The course has Britain’s biggest jumps, slides, climbing walls, trampolines, balance bars, rockers and more. Watch a video of the impressive course here.
