The First In The World At H20 Xtream

H20 Xtream is again getting a toy that is to be the first in the world. This brand new giant inflatable stands at 3.7 metres high and is 8 metres long and has been specially designed for H20 Xtream.

Designed in the shape of a Pelican, this inflatable is the first giant pelican in the world to be made. Swimmers can crawl up inside the back of the pelican and slide out its mouth into the water.

There has been a competition for the public to guess what the new inflatable was and 10 year old Simran Singh was the competition winner. Simran will have the honour of being congratulated by the Upper Hutt Mayor Wayne Guppy, have free swims and slides over the summer holidays and be the first person to use the slide in the waters of H20 Xtream.

There will be a photo opportunity on Thursday 9th December at 6pm with the winner of the competition Simran Singh and the Mayor; Wayne Guppy officially opening the inflatable to H20 Xtream and the world
