A VIP LAUNCH PARTY is set to excite the children and toddlers of Barnsley. The party will coincide with the reveal of Barnacle Bay, the brand new toddler splash pool at Calypso Cove.
The event will take place on Friday July 20th and will include a variety of attractions across the Barnsley Metrodome site.
It’s an invitation only event with the venue and local news outlets running Barnacle Bay competitions with a chance to win family VIP tickets.
The lucky VIP winners will be welcomed onto the red carpet by a ‘meet and greet’ session, with Barnacle Bay’s brand new turtle mascots Finn and Marina, alongside Calypso Cove’s Captain Cutlass.
Calypso Cove will be hosting an extravagant pool party featuring different coloured pools, inflatables and an array of poolside activities. Heart FM will be accompanied by their ‘Heart Angels’ and radio breakfast presenter, DJ Dixie, who will be covering the celebrations throughout the day.
For those who don’t fancy getting their hair wet, a Bubble party will be taking place up in the Rigby Suite consisting of a DJ, face painting, temporary glitter tattoos, a photo booth and arts and crafts for the youngsters.
Bowling at the Metrodome will be open and free to VIP guests between 3:30pm - 5:30pm, arrivals can bowl for free, but this will run on a first come first served basis, subject to availability.
The Hideout dining area will be open as usual, serving free Barnacle Bay themed ice creams to every paying customer.
With ongoing construction taking place presently, Barnacle Bay will replace the old baby and toddler pool, formerly Coconut Creek. The splash pool itself will feature a variety of water features including squirting fish, tipping buckets, water wheels and a shark shower. An interactive wall will be located alongside the pool containing mini interactive games. The Barnacle Bay campaign has already received great interest from the public. Throughout the build up to this eagerly anticipated project, families have been participating through the use of social media and photo competitions held at Barnsley Metrodome.
Extra tickets to the launch will be circulated at a later stage via Calypso Cove social media competitions and a raffle draw held at Barnsley Metrodome.
