Foxlake Dundee, the water-based adventure park on the city’s waterfront which features cable wakeboarding, one of the world’s fastest growing watersports, unveils a £30k expansion plan that includes creating a spectator seating area, additional changing facilities and a new kit storage unit, resulting in the creation of five new jobs.
Changes to the site, leading to the team going from 20 to 25, have been brought forward due to Covid social distancing guidelines, also include changing the name to Wild Shore Dundee, in line with the company’s three sites south of the border, Wild Shore Delamere, Wild Shore New Brighton and Wild Shore Liverpool.
The Five-Star VisitScotland attraction, which also features Scotland’s largest Aqua Park, a giant inflatable assault course spanning 600sqm with 18 obstacles, including Neptune’s Steps, the 3.8m high Mighty Mount Rainer and Ringo Rides and Stand Up Paddleboarding, has been making a splash in the city since it opened in 2017.
Manager Zak Hegarty said: “We’re really looking forward to the start of the new season at our adventure park on Dundee’s Waterfront and welcoming all our customers back for some adrenaline-fuelled fun on our water activities, including our Aqua Park, and also share the exciting changes at the site under our new name, Wild Shore Dundee.
“Expanding our changing facilities and creating a spectator seating area has been in the pipeline for some time but we decided to bring the plans forward to allow us to introduce more social distancing measures at the site to make it an even safer place for thrill seekers to visit and have a great time.”
