Russell Diffey calls the warm water spray park'the scream factory' it is a cooling summer sensation for children and adults, he says.

The water park will feature a 200-litre water dumping bucket.

We wanted something with high impact that the kids would really enjoy, Russell said.

There are also a couple of water cannons they can shoot each other with and we've got some waterrings that the kids can run through, he said.

The water park also caters for toddlers with small water jets shooting out of the ground as well as agroup of sprays that create a mushroom-shaped wall of water. Toddlers can crawl in and the waterwill be all round them, he said.
