Frolicking in the colorful water, climbing, sliding, diving for apples, shooting cones with water pistols, eleven-meter shooting and gender competitions – all this made saturday afternoon at the aquaria one of the most enjoyable days of the easter holidays for the children. "Are you in a good mood, do you have power, do you want to party??", moderator rainer blasted into the microphone. Full of enthusiasm, the young bathers shouted a resounding yes in chorus. Like a pool full of lively tadpoles, the children danced to the music in the water and sang along loudly to the familiar earworms.
"We had about 500 guests, almost 400 of them who had come especially for the party", jorn pakobnick-kirchner, head of the indoor swimming pool department, was pleased. At least the little "water rats and fugitives" were given a chance A lot on offer, too. Whether in the exciting competitions in the water with aqua obstacle course or in the oversized hamster wheel – skill, reaction and teamwork were in demand everywhere. In the gender competition, the girls showed the boys their strengths and vice versa. Real stadium atmosphere at the eleven-meter penalty shootout. And that was not at all easy on the water walkway. The children cheered their groups loudly, laughed, chatted and squealed happily.
