Walking between San Antonio Bay and San Antonio Harbour you cannot help but notice the orange, white and blue inflatables floating in the bay. This my friends is Ocean Mania, an assault course on water.
They have a little shop beside Ocean Beach with lockers for valuables and where you purchase your low priced tickets. Once you’re ready, you make your way to the shoreline, where you are fitted with a life jacket and guided into the water. You follow the rope out to the course swimming as it gets deeper.
Getting on to the on ramp with a little pulling and shoving from friends, or strangers who are bouncing past, may be needed to get you up onto the inflatable course.
The next question is which direction, which obstacle first?
You take a few tentative steps keeping low on the slippery surface and navigate your way round over and under obstacles through the tunnel and to within sight of the climbing wall, just a few rings to navigate very carefully and onto the climbing wall. With hand holds you can reach the summit and ultimately in your self-congratulations you slip and slide into the water, trust me it won’t be for the last time.
You recover yourself, finding another on ramp and continue round slipping and sliding and balancing yourself carefully. Over the rope swing with friends and family laughing as SPLASH you’re in the water again.
Back on at last, you decide to climb onto the jump cushion, gingerly getting yourself to the end egging your friends to jump on the other end. When they do, it sends you flying into the air and into the water with a huge splash to great cheers.
A short swim and another clamber back on you try the trampoline on water which is located in the middle of the course. You get there, take a 5 min rest, and then start to jump. With it being on water and a little more unstable it’s not as easy as it looks and one wrong bounce and SPLASH there’s that water again.
All too soon your time is up and after one last clamber up the ramp for one last mega slide into the water you swim slowly back to the shore to see the endless pictures they took of you always at just the wrong moment.
Great for all with swimming ability as you will fall off and spend a bit of time swimming round and clambering back on.
