Ulster Rugby players Sean Reidy, Luke Marshall and Andrew Warwick try out the new Aqua Rugby pitch at Let’s Go Hydro.

The 6,000 sq ft floating pitch is the first permanent outdoor aqua rugby facility in the UK and Ireland and coincides with the opening of a new cable water sports park at Let’s Go Hydro. The additional leisure facilities represent an additional £1 million investment in the resort.

A popular choice for corporate team building, aqua rugby is a water-based take on the traditional sport and involves participants attempting to score a try by splashing into the water, while the new cable park will offer visitors a chance to experience wakeboarding, kneeboarding and tubing.

Located at Knockbracken Reservoir in Carryduff, Let’s Go Hydro has doubled in size to become a permanent fixture after attracting over 50,000 visitors last year within a four month period.

In addition to the new water-based leisure facilities that join the existing Aqua Park and Puddle Park, the resort also offers overnight accommodation for up to 200 guests with a range of luxury glamping pods, a floating lake pod, a safari lodge and forest domes.
