Looking for a unique family fun adventure nearby? Paqua Park at Scorpion Bay Marina is now open. The 5,000 square-foot inflatable, on-water obstacle course at Lake Pleasant provides hours of fun for ages seven and up.
According to the park, it is Arizona’s first outdoor floating obstacle course.
“You’ll run. You’ll jump. You’ll slide. You’ll bounce. You’ll fall – and get back up and do it all again! Paqua Park is a great way to beat the heat and have some fun,” according to the park’s website.
Paqua Park sessions are 45 minutes long and are available on the weekends to individuals at least seven years old and 45 inches tall. Life jackets are required for all participants and are provided with booking. Park staff recommends that attendees fill out the waivers found on the website before coming to the park to save time. Group rates and private events are available. Online booking is highly recommended.

Aqua socks or water shoes with a soft rubber sole are permitted on the course; however, river shoes, Tevas, crocs, sneakers, or any other hard bottomed shoes are not permitted.
Fridays sessions begin at noon, 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday sessions begin at 11 a.m., 12:30 p.m., 2:30 p.m. and 4 p.m.
