Planning a trip to Aqua Parcs in Milton Keynes this year?

Planning a trip to Aqua Parcs in Milton Keynes this year? Get ready for a day of fun in the sun (or clouds, it is England), and don’t worry—we've taken away the stress of planning with our ULTIMATE checklist guide. Follow the below plan and you’ll get the most out of your visit…


Book your tickets online in advance to secure your spot and avoid disappointment. If you haven’t done so already, here’s the link (check out the season passes that can save you money) Aqua Parcs | The Ultimate Day Out in Milton Keynes 

Check the weather and travel:

Check the weather forecast and dress accordingly. If it's going to be a hot day don't forget to protect yourself from the sun or if it's going to be a typical UK cloudy day remember to bring warm clothes and a towel to wrap up warm after your experience. 

A quick google maps search will show you what the traffic is like – that M1 can be a beast if you’re coming from the North or South. 

Equipment you will need: 

  • Padlock – we do sell them on site but save yourself a £5
  • Swimwear (to go under the wetsuit we provide – if possible, get them in their swimwear under their clothes prior to arrival – saves so much time!)
  • Towels (we have showers on site)
  • Flip flops or crocs – something to easily slide off and leave by the waterside 
  • Extra pair of socks (even with the greatest planning, someone is bound to step in a pool of water when getting changed)
  • Warm clothes – the adrenaline soon wears off when you leave the course and you don’t want to hear ‘but I’m cold’ from you know who
  • Suncream – we live in hope
  • Hat 

Arrive with plenty of time:

We recommend you arrive at reception 40-minutes before your session(s) start time – don’t forget to check the traffic.


The Willen Lake car park is operated by Ringo. It’s the easiest way to pay for parking on your phone. If you stay longer than anticipated you can extend it from anywhere you are.

Hydration and Snacks:

It’s hard work on the park so afterwards you will be tired, thirsty and hungry. Make sure to bring some water and some snacks to hydrate and re-fuel after your session has finished. There is a lovely café on site if you wish too. 

This is their menu

Bring a support crew:

You got to have some ‘cheerleaders’. If you've come with friends and family, we offer a spectator area located on the edge of the lake (a super long lens would be ideal for close-ups). From there, they can enjoy a closer view of you having the time of your life on the park! We recommend spectators bring blankets and/or chairs, as the ground can become muddy. 

Capture the Memories:

Snap a picture before you take on the course or bring a GoPro to capture your adventures on the inflatables. Make sure to share your experiences on social media and tag Aqua Parcs. 

With this stress-free checklist in hand, you're all set for a fantastic day at Aqua Parcs on Willen Lake. Remember to relax, have fun, and make memories that will last a lifetime at this exciting water park!

Right, you’re Aqua-ready to go! We hope this helps you have the best time ever! See you soon.
