Scarborough Water Park's operator has confirmed some of the prices for the new £14 million attraction.

Vicki Jones, Alpamare's head of operations, told The Scarborough News this morning that an adult ticket would be £19, with a child ticket costing £15 (aged 6-15). Children five and under will go free.

A family ticket will be priced at £60 (2 adults and 2 paying children) and there are also plans to introduce a winter pricing structure for off-season users of the North Bay attraction. Special deals and offers will also be available.

She said Alpamare was eager to stress that the Water Park is a year round attraction.

She said: "This is a major attraction with a number of high quality slides and waves pools.

"Just to give an idea of the size there has just been 1,000 lockers fitted and the tallest ride will start from a height of 15 metres."

The four slides, all different, will be up to 120 metres long and will cater for four-person inflatables, double inflatables and racing mats. 35,000 litres of water per minute will be pumped through the slides, which are being built to optimise speed..

All the slides have been named based on an Alpine skiing theme and have been constructed by internationally renowned water slide manufacturer and water park planner, ProSlide.

The ‘Black Run’ will be the steepest and fastest slide with a drop of 11 metres.

The ‘Cresta Run’ will be based on the world-famous Cresta run in St Moritz, which will see riders propelled down the equivalent of a black ski run, head first, on a racing mat.

At more than 116 metres long, the family friendly ‘Olympic Run’ will be the longest of the four slides for a guaranteed fun filled shared ride on a double inflatable.

Signature ride ‘Snow storm' will pump 20,900 litres of water per minute, when four person inflatables will hurtle riders down more than 14 metres of twists and turns into the pool below.

The Water Park will also feature an outdoor family pool with whirlpools and bubble recliners and a restaurant.

The park is due to open in July.
