Words by Jodie Powell

A new inflatable water wonderland is headed for Clontarf.

The owners of Aqua Warrior Redcliffe – husband and wife team Craig Rosevear and Saadah Ismail - have signed a three-year agreement with Moreton Bay Regional Council to operate an inflatable circuit waterpark adjacent to Pelican Park.

The centre replaces the one run by Aqua Splash, whose agreement expired earlier this year.

Craig says he and Saadah are looking forward to opening the park – hopefully in early December, with some equipment still to arrive from overseas.

“It’s going to be a really good course – I think everyone’s going to love it,” Craig says.

Craig set up the first inflatable waterpark circuit in Australia about 10 years ago and he and Saadah have since owned courses in Sydney, Bli Bli and Coolum on the Sunshine Coast, as well as on the Gold Coast.

Unique course

His passion for floating obstacles was sparked when he was a sailing instructor.

“I did a Google search for floating devices and found a floating trampoline and we’d pull the boats up to it and have lunch on it,” Craig recalls.

“Then I got to thinking about what would happen if we made a circuit out of it.

“We changed the whole commercial side of the industry overnight because we could have 250 people on the course at the one time.”

Craig’s confident the Redcliffe iteration of Aqua Warrior will be the best yet, with new devices building on existing equipment to create a unique course.

“We have some fantastic obstacles that no-one else has,” he says.

Aqua Warrior still has vacancies for staff, including lifeguards.
