Park Vega, Nigeria’s largest water park, emerges in Agbor

by Araayo Akande

Agbor, the transit town in Delta State that connects the southwest and southeast will soon become a mecca for revellers, especially those who love frolicking in the water with Park Vega Water Park.

A member of the International Association of Amusements and Attractions (IAAPA) and World Waterparks Association, (WWA), Park Vega, according to its promoters, is the nation’s and West Africa’s first international standard water park.

Sitting on 1,500m2 of land and containing close to half a million gallons of water, the park’s wave pool mimics the ocean’s waves by pneumatically producing waves up to 1.1m height. It is the most up to date technology in the international market and the centrepiece of Park vega, offering hours of splashing fun for all ages and swimming levels.

Park Vega’s adult slides, namely space-hole slide, freefall slide, multi-surf slide, and black hole – wave combo slide offer different experiences to riders.

The space hole slide has twists and turns before the rider is thrown into a large bowl where centrifugal forces keep guest riders high on the wall for several rotations. They are then plunged into a slash pool.

The multi-surf slide takes riders on an electrifying head-to-head competition over a series of gut-wrenching bumps propelling them to the finish line to see the fastest.

The freefall slide is an extremely thrilling slide that gives riders a momentary feeling of weightlessness and pushes fun-seekers courage to the limits. It has an extra enclosed tube at the top to build anticipation. It is a perfect recipe for those who appreciate the adrenaline rush.

Blackhole-wave combo slide both add remarkable experience to the traditional waterslide. It features a steep drop that takes riders up a nearly vertical wall for a moment of weightlessness before they are swish-swashed down to the shutdown lane. With this slide, guests can enjoy their double raft while sharing laughter with family and friends.

Children will experience a very colourful Aqua tower and Splash pad fitted with over 50 interactive elements. They include tipping bucket, bubbler jets, slides, umbrella jets, water guns, water wheels, the pipe falls, net bridge and net climber. The kid’s pools have very shallow depth and are finished with anti-slip tiles for all-day safe play.

There is also an activity pool which has an obstacle course, water volleyball and water polo for activity fanatics. In addition to all these, Park Vega has a swim-up bar that offers cocktails and mocktails.
