Running on a floating obstacle course. Right: Giant inflatable waterpark near Ottawa.

You can level up your beach day this summer by racing your friends on a floating obstacle course. There is a beachside waterpark that makes an epic day trip from Ottawa.

Aquazilla is a pair of inflatable waterparks in Quebec and one is located on Oka Beach, only two hours away from the city of Ottawa.

This summer attraction is made of floating interlocked islands on a lake inlet along the Ottawa River where you can run, jump, bounce, slide and of course swim. There are trampolines, ladders, slides, a trapeze bar and a number of different obstacles you can tackle.

It's open for the summer so it's a great time to plan a sunny day trip on the water. Safety is a top priority so you'll find lifeguards on-site and wearing a lifejacket is required.

The second of the two waterparks is found on Jean-Doré Beach, just about 20 minutes further from Ottawa, making it another doable day trip. The Oka location is slightly larger, with a capacity of 105 people versus 90 people at Jean-Doré.

Rates differ slightly at each location with one-hour admission being $19 at Oka Beach and a day pass costs $31 per person. There are also season passes if you plan on coming back a few times.

A reservation is not required ahead of time, but if you want to secure your spot you can buy a ticket online. You can also reserve beach parking online through the beach's website if needed. You can take your time relaxing on the shore after all of the activity on the water.
