SC2 launches Autism friendly sessions

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.

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.

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.

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.

The waterpark at SC2 is also available for exclusive group bookings, birthday parties and private hire, anyone who is interested in booking can give their friendly team a call on: 01745 777562.

SC2 Splash Pad is now open

The Splash Pad at SC2, Rhyl’s exciting new waterpark and adventure centre is now open.

The outdoor Splash Pad gives customers the complete holiday experience on their doorstep as a free added extra to their waterpark ticket.

Tipping buckets, water canons, sprinklers and the paradise slide are just of the few features of the new outdoor water area. While children enjoy the state of the art water features, adults can relax in the sun on the outdoor terrace and seating areas, or grab a drink and burger at the Terrace Bar and Snack Shack.

Jamie Groves, Head of Facilities, assets and housing, said: “The Splash Pad offers customers to the waterpark an outside, enclosed area for families to play in the water and relax by the pool.

“The Splash Pad is full of bright, colourful and easily accessible features and will keep the little ones entertained, whilst at the same time, building their water confidence. We are really proud of what we have achieved at SC2 and look forward to bringing this outdoor experience to the people of Rhyl.”

A new range of delicious burgers are being launched in the Rainforest Diner and Terrace Bar within SC2, which is free to use and open to the public at weekends and during holidays.

The Splash Pad, Snack Shack and The Terrace will be weather dependant and open seasonally, access will be included as part of any Waterpark ticket. Book tickets online at http://www.sc2rhyl.co.uk.
