The name and design renderings of a new £15m ($21.2m) water park in Rhyl, Wales have been released by Denbighshire County Council.
The water park will be called SC2 and will form a major part of the waterfront development of Rhyl. It will open to the public in spring 2019 and is expected to attract an extra 350,000 visitors to the town each year.
SC2 will be a 1,200sqm water park, with indoor and outdoor flume rides, children’s water play frame and slides, TAG Active zone, party rooms, reception and sales areas. An outside splash pool will include two wet splash pads, sun lounger areas and cafe terraces. There will also be a bar and terrace to cater for evening trade.
Councillor Bobby Feeley, cabinet lead for well-being and independence, said: “Announcing the name is another significant milestone in this exciting project.
“We wanted a modern name and brand that complements other leisure facilities in the county and being a brand that will be instantly recognisable and one that people will remember.
“The building works are on schedule and residents and visitors to the promenade area will have seen the structure taking shape over recent weeks. We are delighted at the progress made so far and we have a lot of work ahead of us to get the building ready for opening next year.”
SC2 is being funded by Denbighshire County Council, with contributions from Rhyl Town Council and the Welsh Government. The plans were drawn up in partnership with Alliance Leisure. Planning permission was granted for the project last July.
