The adventure park will be in the 50 acres of parkland at Bluewater, which has recently been awarded Green Flag status for the fifth year in a row.

Once open, Hangloose Bluewater will continue to add more experiences over the following 36 months.

These include an outdoor skydive machine, Europe's largest swing and Europe's largest outdoor climbing wall.

Focusing on environmentally safe and eco-friendly fun, the climbing wall will make use of the cliffs surrounding Bluewater to create a range of activities for all fitness levels.

People will be able to get their hands on an early-bird 30% discount by visiting the Hangloose Adventure stand in Bluewater from October 24.
