Opening of Coventry's new waterpark delayed

THE LONG-AWAITED opening of Coventry’s new waterpark, The Wave, has been delayed.

The park’s operator CV Life has said there will be a ‘short wait’ for an official opening date to be confirmed.

It has also given no indication of when the £36million park will actually open to the public.

CV Life had previously said the park’s gym and spa facilities were set to open on June 24, with no date set for the slides and pools themselves.

Chief executive for CV Life Paul Breed said no membership fees with CV Life – or The Wave itself – will be taken until August 1.

He said: “The opening of the Health and Fitness Suites and Mana Spa will be a hint as to how amazing the waterpark and the rest of The Wave is going to be, and for this reason we would like to wait a little longer to open to ensure the highest standards are met.

“The facilities must be finished to the highest quality and until we are satisfied we have that, we will not be opening.

“It will only be a short wait until we can release an official opening date which will definitely be worth the wait.”

The 120-piece fitness stations have now been installed at The Wave, the company says.

It also says the swimming pool is filled and a team of instructors and beauticians are trained and waiting to welcome clients.

It will feature a new four-lane, 25-metre swimming pool and also squash courts, a dance studio and a day spa.

But the most eagerly anticipated attraction will be the waterpark’s nine flume slides – six of which have been revealed.
