A water obstacle course coming to Surfside Beach
A new family fun attraction anchored off shore on the Surfside Beach, is being installed right as we speak. The inflatable water sports park allows kids and adults to run, jump, swing and swim.
The attraction, the first of its kind in Aruba, is low tech, and environmentally friendly, as it doesnít require great infrastructural work. The pop up playground is an added sporty, beach activity and targets both tourist and the local market.
Randy Geerman who is the motor behind the initiative says itís a cross between a bounce house, and a trampoline, but itís floating in water, and while it requires no special athletic skill or preparation, it is still challenging as a recreational sport, and excellent as a fitness option which kids would love, best of all, away from their phones and computers.
Randy Geerman, a FIU graduate in the hospitality field, and a teacher in the local EPI Hospitality & Tourism College is venturing out to present his first entrepreneurial effort. The floating inflatable water obstacle course has a number of trampolines, monkey bars, flippers, slides, hurdles, rockers, rollers, a climbing wall, and a swing.
Groups and individuals are invited to explore the course, beat the obstacles, race with friends & family, and watch the wipe outs, as they happen, live!
My bet is that it will liven Surfside Beach up with companies and individuals getting wet and wild. If we could only teach them to park in the lot and NOT on white sand, it would be a positive addition to the menu of island fun. Randy says the facility will offer other related activities as well, I will report when he tells me.
