The Waterworld Group, owned by British-Asian leisure entrepreneur Mo Chaudry, has confirmed that will start work on a phased £10m expansion and development plan of the Waterworld complex in Stoke On Trent.
The expansion will see a purpose built 60,000 square foot leisure development join the existing aqua theme park. The plans will include a new M Club Spa & Fitness Club, a new trampoline park, new water rides and attractions and the arrival of an indoor adventure golf concept called ‘Adventure Mini Island Golf’. The Group’s recent acquisition of the latter, a successful Birmingham leisure business, is part of a multi-million pound plan to expand the leisure brand and operation. The group plans to invest £20 million over the next five years launching twenty indoor adventure golf centres across the UK in key towns and cities, the second of which will be located at Waterworld.
The Waterworld expansion plans will create a further 100 jobs in addition to the current 200 people employed within the Waterworld Group. Waterworld chairman Mo Chaudry commented: “I am delighted that we are able to move forward with our exciting and ambitious plans for Waterworld Group. This is a significant investment into the region and will not only help boost the local economy but also strengthen Stoke on Trent’s bid for City Of Culture in 2021. I am particularly excited that we will also be able to bring Adventure Mini Island Golf to the Waterworld site giving another exciting leisure concept to our customers.”
