Water Wipeout at The Bear Trail – 9th June
Water Wipeout, claimed as “the South West’s greatest water fight”, is a brand-new event for 2019 on the 9th June at The Bear Trail near Cullompton – which is about a 50-minute drive away. This is a family friendly assault course with a twist. If 28 obstacles aren’t enough to contend with, completing the course without getting drenched will be impossible! Members of the crew will be stationed around the course with water guns and bombs filled with different coloured water, and children big and small are welcome to bring their own water guns to ensure it becomes all out carnage!
