What is a cable park?
When you fall at WHAT, a push of a button and the handle is immediately back in your hands.
It is the “Green” alternative to riding, running solely on electricity and creating zero carbon emissions. Come check us out and snag some good karma.
How does it work?
The system consists of two towers that are placed on opposite sides of the lake with cables attached to each tower. Attached to the cables is a ski rope that pulls riders from one side of the lake to the other. When reaching the end of the cable, the rider cuts away from the cable and carries their momentum in a small semi-circle and heads back the other direction. The cable allows for a continuous ride and possibly sore muscles.
Is it safe?
Absolutely! Safety is WHAT’s priority. Our staff takes safety seriously. All riders will be required to wear a lifejacket and helmet while participating. All operators are fully trained and certified to deliver a safe and unforgettable experience.
What are some of the benefits of riding at the cable?
The cable system provides a consistent pull giving beginners the optimal learning environment. Riders learning behind a boat or PWC face variables such as inexperienced drivers, miscommunication, and the location of the ski rope. The cable system eliminates all these factors. The system has adjustable speeds for all levels of riders and always performs a constant pull off the dock (perfect for dock starts). In addition, the ski rope is connected to an overhead cable pulling the rider up and out of the water, rather than a dragging pull through the water that many boats deliver with their low ski pylons.
Maximum Water Time
Bush’s lake always offers perfect conditions eliminating the need to search for calm water.
Where are you located? Are you open even in foul weather?

We are open rain or shine! The only time we close down is if there is thunder or lightning.
Are there any camps for kids?
Summer camps are run through our favourite pals at WakeHui. Summer 2018 will bring more week long camps then previous years with dates to be announced shortly. For more information of the types of camps, coaches, dates, etc. check out www.wakehui.com .
Can I rent the cable privately?
Of course you can. With our online booking system you can book your time slot and secure your spot on the cable. You can also book an hour or so and invite your friends to come ride with you, its always more fun riding with friends.
Please try to book at least 24 hours in advance. To be fair to other riders, we also have a 24 hr cancellation policy… though it is loosely enforced.
Is the cable operator really as handsome as the rumours say?
And has a delightful personality.
