Montreal’s Aquazilla Obstacle Course At Parc Jean Drapeau Is Now Open

The biggest of its kind ever installed in the city.
Montreal’s Aquazilla Obstacle Course At Parc Jean Drapeau Is Now Open

There no shortage of cool things happening in Montreal this summer. There's the urban slip and slide and the big aquatic obstacle course at the Parc Jean Drapeau Pool, but this one blows them both ... out of the water. Much like the new FlyBoard course you can now take.

But putting all that aside, the first obstacle course we wrote about will look puny compared to the new installation known as Aquazilla.

In honor of the Parc Jean-Drapeau Beach's 25th anniversary, the city of Montreal will be installing the gigantic 30x35 meter large inflatable island riddled with obstacles, slides and platforms for you to perform stunts on.

The inflatable island features an infinity loop (no idea what that is but it sound cool as f-ck), a central trampoline, a climbing tower, a cliff, some monkey bars, a flip bag and a giant swing to launch you into the water. Don't lie, you know that sounds awesome.

Course opens this Thursday, June 18th and will be open until August 23rd. See you there!

The City of Brossard, a municipality on Montreal's South Shore, has issued a boil water advisory "until further notice" so residents will want to skip drinking tap water or boil it for at least a minute before doing so.

"The City of Brossard is issuing a boil water advisory for its entire territory following laboratory analysis results that indicate the presence of fecal coliforms in the water system," reads a statement. If it's not clear, fecal coliforms are bacteria passed through the feces of humans and animals.
