The Adventure Dock Co
Adventure Dock is Liverpool’s newest and bounciest family attraction. The aqua park is a giant inflatable obstacle course on the water in Dukes Dock, which is next door to the Iconic Albert Dock on the famous Liverpool Waterfront.
The Adventure Dock course is made up of huge inflatable free-fall slides, trampolines, rafts and barriers. You’ll bounce, splash and slide whilst racing your family & friends around this fun filled course. Anyone from the age of 8 years old will have an amazing time on this unique course, and we will make sure you leave with a huge smile and totally wiped out!
Race your friends & family – Explore the Course – Conquer the Obstacles
Our course is made up of over 50 elements all joined together to create a serious amount of floating fun, challenges, slides, jumps and drops! Mount Rainier will be towering over the Albert Dock and is our biggest element, once you have climbed to the top, there are a number of adrenalin filled ways to get back to water level! There are a host of Ninja Warrior style features including the Tire Run, Ninja Jump and Dragon Tail. These will challenge your balance and nerve and if you get them wrong, you can enjoy a big splash. Don’t worry if you think this all sounds too intimidating, we have a host of tamer features, including the Moon Balls and Overpass and we are installing plenty of Neptune Steps, which allow very easy access from the water back onto the aqua park!

In the 1980’s the entire Liverpool South Dock system was emptied of water and completely dredged. Since then the South Dock system is only used for leisure and tourism and the water quality is very clean. It is well within the EU Bathing Standards and is tested on a monthly basis by our Harbour Master. The Liverpool South Docks system plays host to numerous watersports including wakeboarding and waterskiiing, open water swimming, triathlon events, water polo, sailing, canoeing, rowing and many more.
