Get wet and go wild in Battersea Park

News at Eden Harper | 16/05/2016

Battersea Park will become London’s first family-friendly aqua obstacle course on Sunday 7 August when Splash Fest opens.

Organised by lifesaving charity, the Royal National Lifeboat Institution, Splash Fest will feature five zones of water-themed challenges and games over a 2.5km trail plus an event village.

Activities for families and children aged between 7 and 12 include: 

  • Bubbly Brook featuring giant bubbles, zorbs, a maze and live music from a bandstand marooned in a sea of foam; 
  • Slip-Slide Stream featuring toboggan-style water slides, swinging inflatables, water spouts and monkey bars to navigate in Wild Wild Waters; 
  • Splash ’n’ Shoot target challenge; and  
  • Crazy Canyon offering participants a lily pad challenge and giant inflatable water slide.  

The Splash Out Zone will be the place to go for live music, entertainment, food and drink, and a drying-off area. 

Lauren Pincott, from event organisers the RNLI, says: “Not only will families have fun, they’ll be helping to save lives as the RNLI will use all profits to help fund its
life-saving work.”
Early bird tickets for Splash Fest cost £15 for adults and £7.50 for children and are available from until 30 May.  
After 30 May, the standard ticket price is £22 for adults and £10 for children aged 3-18. On the day tickets will cost £25 for adults and £10 for children aged 3-18. 

To ensure a steady flow through the Splash Fest obstacles, start times will be staggered and can be chosen when purchasing tickets.
