Splash Wa­ter­park

Tropical Traveller Magazine - - CONTENTS -

Kids and wa­ter ac­tiv­i­ties are the per­fect for­mula for mak­ing a fam­ily hol­i­day in Saint Lucia – or any­where else – a huge suc­cess. Last year, Saint Lucia wel­comed the ar­rival of Splash Is­land and im­me­di­ately the bright green and yel­low in­flat­able wa­ter park be­came a hit with lo­cal and vis­it­ing kids alike. In fact, many an adult can be seen, stand­ing on the beach and look­ing wist­fully at the fun! De­scribed as “the Caribbean's Wettest & Wildest At­trac­tion,” Splash Is­land is lo­cated on the north­west coast of Saint Lucia, on the pop­u­lar Re­duit Beach. Opened in Au­gust 2015, Splash Is­land is lo­cated at the multi-award-win­ning Bay Gar­dens Beach Re­sort & Spa. Man­u­fac­tured by Wibit Sports GmBH, a Ger­man water­sports com­pany who has been pro­duc­ing com­mer­cial grade in­flat­able wa­ter sports prod­ucts for over 18 years, Splash Is­land is the first in the East­ern Caribbean. Kids, fam­i­lies and week­end war­riors alike are al­ready big fans of the wa­ter park's ob­sta­cle­course style fea­tures. The park has been de­signed and set up in com­pli­ance with the strictest Euro­pean safety re­quire­ments (EN 15649) and test­ing re­lated to ma­te­ri­als and per­for­mance. Splash Is­land is staffed by a team of cer­ti­fied life­guards, and all pa­trons (who must be 6 years of age and older) are re­quired to wear life vests ir­re­spec­tive of their swimming abil­ity. Once safely en­sconced in Splash Is­land’s bright blue life vests, it’s a stam­pede into the calm, shal­low sea and onto the tram­po­line, climb­ing wall or mon­key bars. There’s a swing, a slide, hur­dles, a dou­ble rocker, flip and wa­ter vol­ley­ball court, with plenty of space for max­imis­ing the fun and keep­ing the kids en­ter­tained. You can play for an hour, or take a half- or full-day pass to re­ally en­joy the ex­pe­ri­ence, and there are great pack­ages which in­clude lunch at the Sea Grapes Restau­rant, right on the beach with a view over the splashy pro­ceed­ings. When Trop­i­cal Trav­eller vis­ited Splash Is­land Wa­ter Park, we met a group of kids who had trav­elled to Saint Lucia with the Atlantic Rally for Cruis­ers (ARC), and were be­ing gen­er­ously hosted by Splash Is­land. The looks on their faces told the whole story as they played hard for al­most two hours and from the lit­tlest seven year olds to the al­most-grown-up teenagers, the feed­back was unan­i­mous: Splash Is­land Wa­ter­park is fan­tas­tic!
