SC2, the new water park and adventure centre in Rhyl, has launched weekly Autism friendly sessions to give children and adults with autism an opportunity to enjoy the water park in a more relaxed environment.
[aoa id=”1″]Each session will run with no music and will have free entry for carers, limited announcements and state of the art specialist accessible changing rooms, including facilities with a track hoist. There will be only selected slides running and exclusive access to the water with limited numbers in the pool and the Piranha Play.[/aoa]
With a ratio of one carer for each participant and no age limit, these sessions not only offer an accessible activity for those with additional needs, but also value for money as carers can take part for free.
Jamie Groves, Head of Facilities Assets and Housing, said: “Following feedback from customers over the first month of SC2 opening, we feel these sessions are incredibly important to ensure that all members of our community are catered for and are able to enjoy the waterpark in a suitable environment. We appreciate that customers with autism may feel overwhelmed by the fully operating site so during these sessions we are limiting numbers in the pool, only running specific slides and creating a quieter session with no music or announcements. We are committed to providing an offer for the community that everyone can enjoy and benefit from.”
These sessions will run between 4pm and 5.30pm in the waterpark every Friday during term time and can be booked online as part of the Friday waterpark entry: http://www.sc2rhyl.co.uk.
For a limited period customers with Denbighshire Leisure cards will receive 50% off their booking when they quote junjulweekday50 online and show their leisure card at reception.
