Gov have announced the much anticipated flumes (Serpent and Reef), leisure pool and splash zone will open at the NSC in Douglas tomorrow (Tuesday).

It follows a multi-million pound revamp of the swimming area and a series of successful preview events attended by school children and members of the NSC swimming programme.

All new features will be available during daily fun filled 90 minute sessions with a band system to ensure they don’t get too busy. These slots can be booked up to a week in advance on the Manx Sport and Recreation website

Julie Edge MHK, Minister for Education, Sport and Culture, said: ‘We are delighted that people will finally be able to take advantage of these wonderful facilities which are a great addition to the National Sports Centre.’

People must be at least 120cm (1.2m) tall to ride the flumes in line with the manufacturer’s recommendations and children using Coral Cove, where the shallow water is perfect for non-swimmers, must be at least two years of age and accompanied by a responsible adult.
