The Aqua Parks Steering Group is a voluntary body, with the aim of improving health and safety within the Aqua Parks industry. In order to assist in the UK at this difficult time the Aqua Park Manufacturers, Operators and RLSS UK have come together to look at the issues facing the industry and create guidance to support the industry.

Aqua Parks are a new and innovative water sports activity that entered the UK Market within the last decade. They are an outdoor water sports activity that can be safely managed with appropriate practices.  This document contains suggested methods for an Aqua Park to operate with current Government guidance in place. Each Aqua Park Operator has the responsibility to undertake their own risk assessment and evaluate and implement control measures for their facility.

The guidance is intended to assist Aqua Park Operators in England, during the UK Government’s COVID-19 Recovery Strategy. Wales, Scotland, and Northern Ireland have their own devolved Governments who are issuing differing guidance, so guidance for these countries will vary and may not be consistent with this document. Each business will need to translate the Government's advice, into the specific actions it needs to take, depending on the nature of the business, including the size and type of business, how it is organised, operated, managed and regulated.

Please note this is an ever changing environment and guidance may be updated following changes from the government, if you are using this guidance to assist you, it is important that you ensure you have the most recent version, which can be found here.
