Suitable for ages: Older Children (9-12) and Teenagers (13-18)
Venue type: Outdoor
Wakelake was the Midland's first cable tow centre and is mainly dedicated to the exciting activity known as wakeboarding! This is the sport of balancing on a short, wide board (similar to a surfboard), and performing moves while being towed along, in this case, by the aforementioned cable tow! There are 2 straightline cables, which are ideal for those new to wakeboarding, plus 5 individual obstacles for the more experienced riders who want to learn some tricks!
It doesn't matter if your family haven't wakeboarded before, as one of the friendly instructors will meet you at reception and then explain everything along the way to the water. They kindly provide everything you'll need to ride, including wetsuit, life vest, helmet and of course the wakeboard itself, so all you need is your swimwear. There is even a dedicated changing unit for before and after, with hot showers available! Luxury!
The centre also offers fun rides on inflatable donut rings, which can be shared by up to 4 people, which is a fun activity, especially if it's windy! They also have a dedicated water zorbing area in the bay behind the cables, which will entertain kids and adults alike! So if the kids are nervous about getting started why not slide them into it via the donuts, from whence they will see the other fun and become tempted!
