AquaHop, the first interlocking, modular, inflatable water playground in South Africa, arrived in Pretoria in December 2015. The water obstacle course, originally inspired by the idea of LEGO, has been developed in 70 countries including Uruguay, Croatia and Vancouver and been used by 8 000 000 people.
Stefmarie Naude and Ancheri Luus, co-owners of AquaHop, brought the concept to South Africa because they wanted to share a new, exciting water hobby with individuals of all ages who could experience activities usually done on land, on water instead. They are passionate about people, water sports and exciting events so adding an action-packed water activity to their impressive regime has been a natural progression.
AquaHop has a variety of obstacles including the Swing, Wiggle Bridge, Action Tower and Slope where participants can enjoy exciting games, activities, races and balancing competitions. Take a deep breathe, hold onto your costume and get ready to keep your balance as you wobble over the Wiggle Bridge or explore various adventure paths from the T-Connect.
Feel like Tarzan as you swing over the water before climbing to the top of the Action Tower and gliding into the pool. This custom made obstacle course, is designed for families or groups of people wanting to share a fun and challenging experience together and is perfect for pool parties, birthday parties, team building and special events.
AquaHop is not only extraordinarily fun but also teaches valuables skills such as managing balance, coordination, speed and agility while strengthening participants’ bodies. While individuals enjoy attempting to overcome the exhilarating obstacle course, they also strengthen and tone their muscles making their bodies fitter and stronger.
This water activity creates healthy competition and non-stop entertainment between families, friends and colleagues and is unlike any activity you’ve ever experienced before. AquaHop takes water play to a new dimension as you race towards the next obstacle, whooshing through the twists and turns of the course.
This innovative aqua playground brings the thrill and challenge of organised water sports to the pool as you enjoy a workout or dance to music on water on hot summer days or during the holidays. Pack your swim suit, put those sunglasses on and spend time at AquaHop to get your heart racing and excitement levels rising.
