Fun in the sun at Atlantis Lost City Adventure Park

New addition
An adventure park which consists of a bike track, zipline and playground at Atlantis Sports Club, will provide tones of pleasure for visitors. .
Another form of fun has been added to the list of fun things to do in Walvis Bay: The grand opening of the Atlantis Lost City Adventure Park, at the Atlantis Sports Club, takes place on 4 December 2022 from 09:00 to 13:00.

According to Nadja Figueiredo, a representative of the coastal-based sports club, the adventure park will upon completion, also boast a small but unique bike track for young and old featuring some challenging jumps.

“Jacques Gryffenberg from Cyclestanix designed and constructed the bike park with support from Klaus Frielingsdorf, Baard Transport, NT Trading, Westcoast Joinery, Calidad Trading, Seawork and Merlus. Other features are a Ninja Warrior course with a 25m zipline, a small playground with various seating areas, and two entertainment spaces with braai facilities that can be rented for birthday parties.”

The 200m² Skate Park will unfortunately not be completed this year due to high costs. “We are hoping that more sponsors will join in for this project to commence and to be completed in early 2023. This is a huge investment made possible with the help of our sponsors Hydroweld, NamOps Logistics, Seanam Fishing, Pirtek, Hopfast and CPP Suremix.”

Families are welcome to pop in and view the facilities on the day of the opening. “They can try out what we have to offer and visit our car boot sale for some Christmas bargains. We will also be running a promotion for signing up and becoming a member for 2023 to use the facilities. Signed-up members can use the facility for free in December. Alternatively, we offer a daily rate to enter the Adventure Park.”

Figueiredo said that the idea behind the park is to create a fun outdoor space for children in Walvis Bay. “There is so little on offer in our town. We have invested a lot in our club over the last two years to modernise it and we also added an outdoor Biergarten and playground which is very popular amongst our visitors.”

As is the case with most projects, the costs ended up being higher than originally anticipated. “All expenses are privately funded. Even though Atlantis Sports Club is a private property/community land, the monthly expenses of running a club this size and the maintenance thereof are extremely high. Our personal contribution to get this project completed is close to N$150 000. We are grateful for all sponsorships including second-hand garage doors received from individuals and cable rolls from fishing factories.”

The public can also host events or parties at Adventure Park. “We have two entertainment areas that can be hired for birthday parties. The club also has additional facilities that we rent out for functions/parties such as our soccer field, braai room and Kegelbahn, which was constructed in the late 1960s.”

The Atlantis Sports Club is a community asset. The premises was bought in the mid-1960s to use as sports facilities. “Each committee assists in raising funds to maintain the club as times have changed and fewer people support clubs than in the past. The club swallows a lot of money and a handful of individuals and businesses assist with general expenses,” Figueiredo concluded.
