The Daily Post reports that Denbighshire County Council has approved plans for a £15m waterpark in Rhyl.
The new facility is expected to attract an extra 350,000 visitors to the town and give a £1.7m annual boost to the local economy.
The waterpark will include a free-fall slide, a family tyre ride and a four-lane multi-slide. A number of ‘dry’ attractions will also be on offer including a climbing wall, activity zone and party rooms.
It is hoped the waterpark’s location on West Parade will benefit the area’s shops and other offerings.
The new all-weather attraction is scheduled to open in 2019.
