Better still it will be up and running in time for half term, with the grand opening on Monday 21 October.

The Wave water park will be comprised of six slides, namely: The Cascade, The Crestar, The Rapids, The Riptide, The Torrent and The Cyclone.

Handily, details of what to expect from each slide are outlined on The Wave website, with each slide even given its own 'thrill rating'. Coming out on top with a five out of five thrill rating is The Torrent, which is 82 metres long and reaches top speeds of almost 11 metres per second.

Described as being suitable 'only for the bravest of riders', the floor of the slide 'disappears' leaving riders to plunge to the waters below. Truly, water slides don't get more thrilling than this.

The Cyclone meanwhile sends riders whirling around a bowl, before also sending people plunging to a pool below, earning it a four out of five thrill rating. The Crestar - which incorporates dazzling lighting effects - and The Riptide - which sees riders launched in a tyre - are also 80 percent thrilling.

The Rapids is described as a 'Big Dipper on water' best enjoyed with a pal - ideally a pal who likes their water slides to be about three out of five in terms of thrillingness.

The Cascade is the least thrilling ride, with a rating of two, however it makes up for this by being really colourful, apparently. Sadly though, if you're the kind of person who likes to be less than two fifths thrilled, The Wave has no slides to accommodate you.

Slides aren't the be-all and end-all though at The Wave, which also boasts the UK's largest wave pool, that churns 20 million litres of water a day.


But if you're the kind of person who visits a water park to have a fit time not a fun time, then you may be interested in making use of the fitness centre, which includes a 25-metre pool, a large gym, a dance studio and squash courts. There's also a spa if you want to get away from all the screaming kids and unwind.

Off-peak tickets are £10.50 for adults and £9 for children, while on-peak tickets are £14.50 for adults and £11 for children.
