A brand new aqua park is opening next month in Medway.
St Andrews Lakes in Halling near Rochester will be the home of Kent's newest aqua park.
It will be run by the same people who run a similar popular attraction in Lydd.
The inflatable obstacles and slides will be up and ready at St Andrew Aqua Park from May 29.
People will have to book in advance, with numbers limited to 30 people each session.

In the meantime, the managers had a special message for social media users who claimed the water would be unsafe because it is too cold and too deep.
A spokesman replied: "The water warms up considerably from May onwards.
"Every participant must wear buoyancy aids so its suitable for 'weak' swimmers.
"The aquapark isn't going to be in the middle of the lake. It's going to be close to the water's edge along with lifeguards and full array of safety measures in place."
The new park will be available for youngsters aged six and above, with a minimum height restriction of 120cm.
A spokesman said they were "extremely excited" to be launching a "very much needed outdoor family attraction" in the Medway area.
According to the website, at least 12 obstacles are set for the course, including those named 'Freefal Extreme', 'Overpass' and 'Thunderdome'.
The inflatables are varied in type, with some featuring slides, ramps and climbing activities.
People will be able to book sessions soon on the website.
