We’re sure you’ve seen these things before, but never really thought they were real.
Because, come on, a giant inflatable obstacle course big enough for adults to jump around on? That’s something straight out of a sun-induced fever dream.
But, it’s totally real, and you can totally go there.
The Sylvan Lake Aqua Splash is a gigantic floating fortress complete with a 15-foot tower, a climbing wall, a launch bag, a trapeze swing, and basically anything else you could ever imagine.
Locate, as the name suggests, on Sylvan Lake, the aqua park can be found just west of Red Deer, meaning that it is only an hour and a half drive from Calgary for a full day of fun on the lake.
The park just opened up last weekend and will be open again for the weekend of June 23 and 24 before officially opening for the season on June 30.
Hours for the upcoming weekend will be 11 am to 7 pm, and then from 11 am to 8 pm between June 30 and September 3.
Admission to the park is $17.50 for one hour for adults, though you can save some cash by purchasing two hours off the get-go for $30.50.
Savings are also available for youth, group rates, early bird hours, twilight hours, and seasonal punch cards. Check their website for more information.
