‘Jumanji! I growled and quickly slid down the slide with shocking acceleration -- Screaming unconsciously Only diving suits can be brought on wet rubber. Oh, at least it\'s not a curse ( We have been warned at home. Friendly briefing). \"Jumanji\" is like this, like my whoarse ass -- First enter the river aonmore. Welcome to Splash Valley, a brand new water This summer, the park made its debut at Hidden Valley Holiday Park at Wicklow\'s Rathdrum. The 1,800-square- Rice Park includes about 30 obstacles around a small artificial lake. Think about bounce platform, inflatable climbing frame, Zipper slide, sitting swing, \"Doomsday Tunnel \"(as my nine-year- Old christens, they swing around the thin film of water) There are a lot of shaky sidewalks just to get started. A few minutes later, the lifeguard cleaned everything up, and our meeting splashed down in the mud and quickly crawled through the process. How the latest playground workSplash Valley in Ireland is open to campers and during the day Tourists, hours- The adult price is 20 euros and the child price is 17 euros ( See below for pricing and discounts).

Jump off the deck for the first time-when tea -- Brown water on the Avonmore River will rush onto your diving suit-this will definitely cheer you up. Swimming from there to the first inflatable platform is short. At first, we wondered if there were too many people. At a meeting, up to 80 people are allowed to attend the course, but they will soon spread around the obstacles and we will never have to wait for the best slides for more than a minute or two. After some criticism of the cold, we began to drag the ground. I was pushed into the water more than once by ungrateful children) We are on the road around the stadium. Slides are crazy- Two feet five metres or more tall- There is a sitting swing at the far end where you can jump in the middleflight. The whole experience feels fresh. out-of-the-box.

The campus is also quite small, which means that there will be strange bottlenecks during busy times, but there will be no long way to go between bases. The staff already feel very professional. For example, there was no joke at the security briefing ( Most important note: Do not swim under any obstacle). The interval between Waiters was good and any questions I asked were answered promptly and with authority. \"How Deep is water\" is a good example. About three metres. You won\'t touch the bottom. \"There are a lot of big kids and dads (like myself) Temporarily released from their 40-year-old prison. Body stuff, but prosperity is good supervision. We have some scratches and rubber. Burns, but there\'s nothing you can\'t imagine in advance. This year, Hidden Valley won the Irish reader Travel Award for The Independent. Walking through the oasis of Wicklow, it feels like the golden age of family holidays has returned to a new generation of families-want a safe family, a closed-end resort where children can stroll and cycle through the barbecue, cars travel at snail speed, ranging from kayaking to cinema nights, less than an hour from Dublin to bumper boats.

Our other problems are small. The Lake House is a cabin. The fashion center offers hot food and snacks and you will sneak in after the park, but like many resorts, we would love to see fewer singlesuse plastic ( Small Spoon for ice cream, for example). Oh, and the guy who called \"jumanji! Very annoying. Besides that, it was a good day. Splash Valley 20 EUR/17 EUR per adult/child-hour session.
