Outdoor Aquatic Adventure Reopens for Half Term at Magna

26th May 2016

Half term visitors to Magna are preparing to get wet and wild as its outdoor water adventure, Aqua-tek, re-opens for the summer.

The splash play area in the grounds of the science adventure centre near Rotherham will open again on Saturday 28th May, after being closed for the winter season. Aqua-tek, which is suitable for children of all ages, is one of the UK's largest outdoor water play areas and features fountains, squirts, splashes and sprays. Stuart Ballard, Magna's education manager, said: -Re-opening Aqua-tek always signals the start of summer for us here at Magna, and it is one of our most popular attractions for families. It's a splashingly good adventure in all things water, so we recommend people bring a towel and change of clothes, and prepare to have some serious fun. Visitors can also make the most of Magna's outdoor space with Sci-tek, an adventure-based play structure featuring linked trampoline sets, spinning bowls, tilted roundabouts, twisted slides, rockets and castles. A number of indoor family friendly activities are also available at the visitor attraction over the half term period. They include the Steelos Gallery, which charts the history of the Templeborough site from Roman times to the present day, and The Big Melt, which brings the region's steel heritage to life. Stuart said: -We all know how unpredictable the great British weather can be, so whether the sun shines or not, there is plenty for families to enjoy at Magna over the half term holiday. Although they are on a break from school, kids are still learning when they visit our attractions - only they often don't realise, because they are having such a good time!  Magna houses more than 100 hands-on exhibits designed to explore the four elements of air, water, earth, and fire. The venue also hosts regular school visits and business and social events.
