TASTERS days at Rhyl's newest attraction are proving to be a hit.

Photographer Craig Colville tested out the slides at SC2, which is set to open on April 5.

Armed with his camera, Craig was all smiles as he zoomed down the Speedster, a 3-lane slide, and took on Anaconda, which is completely in the dark.

As part of 'soft testing', thousands of people are trying out the town's new £15m attraction.

More than 3000 tickets were given out to residents ahead of the opening. The county council have since released another 1,500 tickets over the last two taster weekends to give more people the chance to try out SC2.

Craig said: "I was busy taking photos of the event [taster day] and decided a good way to cool off before finishing was to have a quick go on a couple of the slides.

"The snake ride is pitch black and being slightly claustrophobic it seemed to go on for a long time but was great fun."

A spokesman for Denbighshire County Council said: "We are delighted to have offered so many people an opportunity to have a taste of the great facilities that SC2 will offer when it opens to the public in the next few weeks. 

"We have put a tremendous amount of effort to get things right and we will look at the feedback received to see how we can make our great facility even better.

"These are really exciting times”.

Jamie Groves, head of Facilities, Assets and Housing, added: “We are thrilled with the response from the thousands of people who have already visited SC2 for their taster sessions and have provided us with some absolutely great feedback on social media, saying they’ll definitely be visiting again.

"We think it is only right that residents of the local area are the first to experience it for themselves."
