Can I come to the RIDENJOY without an appointment ?
Of course, you can come on spot and inquire about free time. You get to the next possible hour with space. However, during the high season, almost all times are booked on-line in advance so we do not guarantee that the will be possible. Be sure, you’ll get on the track by booking a time on-line. It is a good idea to arrive at the park no later than 15 minutes before your riding time begins. Riding time always starts and ends exactly every hour.
The opening hours of the park may vary depending on the season, holidays and other reasons, so we recommend that you look at the available skiing time on our website.
We reserve the right to refuse to serve without justification.
What payment methods do you have?
Bank cards, cash, Smartum vouchers and Smartum app, Edenred, Edenred lounas for the food in our cafeteria, E-passi, Eazybreak, Eazybreak lounas for the food in our cafeteria.
Do I have to be experienced ?
Not at all! We will give you all the instructions! The only requirement is to have swimming skills and basic fitness. Mostly all first-timers get up and ride on the track without any problems.
What are the age restrictions ?
Tere is no age restrictions. The most important thing is safety in the water. Therefore, the rider should feel comfortable in the water and be able to swim well. The youngest who has been on the track is 4 years old and the oldest is 67 years old, but we recommend starting at least 6 years old and depending on individual physical development.
What if I fail ?
We have good coaching experience, we’ll try to find the instructions that are right for you. And yet, if it does not work out, we will drag you along the water without a board, just on your stomach, this is also a great fun and an excellent massage and stretching for the whole body.
I have diseases of the musculoskeletal system, can I try it ?
Wakeboarding is a heavy physical activity on the back and limbs. If you are unsure, check with your doctor.
I have glasses Can I wear them on the track? What about contact lenses ?
You can of course wear glasses on the track, but please note that they do not float, so make sure you have some string that will keep your glasses safe. Contact lenses can, of course, be worn, but they can be lost if you fall into the water.
I have a kiteboard can I run on that track with it ?
Sure. The cable is well suited for kiteboarding training. With the cable, you can take a driving experience on your own board and work out the water starts. For first-timers, it is often challenging to focus on managing both the kite and the board at the same time. Once you’ve ridden your board with the cable and the next time you go kiting, you no longer have to focus so much on controlling the board but you can focus more on kite control. Mind the fins, you can’t use them when crossing the obstacles.
What do I need to take along ?
You will need to bring swimming trunks or a bikini. We recommend that you bring flip flops and a towel with you.
Is there a shower at RIDENJOY ?
No we don’t have a shower neither a water tap. There are no urban water supply networks in this place. So if you want to fill in your drinking bottle, then take care of this in advance. With the same reason we have only dry bio toilet cabin. Toilet is free of charge for park clients and 1Euro for passers-by.
Is there a sauna at RIDENJOY ?
We have a hot room for warming up before and after wake boarding that is intended for the park’s customers.

It is intended for wakeboarders in order to keep them warm and healthy, it is free of charge for all wakeboarding visitors. It cannot be rented or used only as a sauna. There is no water drain in the floor and we ask you to limit the amount of water poured onto the stones. In winter, the sauna cannot be used due to the operational characteristics of the pavilion made of metal containers.
