Scores of people queued up to experience Rhyl's "new Sun Centre" this afternoon.

Thrill-seekers from across North Wales and over the border flocked to visit SC2 , which officially opened its doors at 4pm.

The £15m attraction features a water park and Wales' first TAGactive obstacle course - described as a cross between Total Wipeout and Ninja Warrior.

Over the last three weeks, thousands of residents had the chance to try it out first when free tickets were handed out.
