Wakeboarding, waterskiing, kneeboarding are three of the most invigorating water sports you can literally dive into on any visit to Willen Lake in Milton Keynes. After such a fantastic summer what better time to start on any trip out here. Besides a smorgasbord of sights...More

Absolutely brilliant first lesson at Wake MK: have to give a special thanks to the staff - Ian our instructor was friendly, enthusiastic, and keen to help us learn and improve our technique throughout the day. Hooked and can't wait to go again!

Unattentive and rude staff, very poor health and safety. If you fall it takes ages to get back and staff just ignores you. No suitable walkway to get back. End up swimming in filthy water.

The Cable operators and locals are all very friendly. There's always a really good vibe. The cable itself is solid and a really nice ride - not as harsh as some cables I have ridden.
