The bosses of Dundee’s first aqua park will go before the city council in September to prove the equipment meets EU safety standards.
The floating obstacle course at the Foxlake Centre at City Quay is due to welcome its first batch of thrill-seekers tomorrow. But the inflatable equipment, including water chutes, bridges and “ninja runs”, was bought from the USA and needs to be brought into line with EU regulations.
Licensing committee convener Stewart Hunter said: “This is purely a bureaucratic matter. There are no concerns over the safety.
“The equipment was bought from America, so the regulations are slightly different.”
He said colleagues did not want to hold back a development bringing something “new and fresh” to Dundee.
“Rather than making them wait until September before they can open this aqua park, it was decided to let them go ahead and get the regulations sorted later,” he said.
“Now is the perfect time for them to open as the weather is so good.”
