The Broward College Tigertail Lake Recreational Center in Dania Beach has opened the Tigertail Aqua Challenge, an 8,000-square-foot inflatable water obstacle course and playground that tests balance and strength. The challenge includes a climbing wall with a slide, a 17-foot-wide trampoline, a 25-foot gigantic bouncing dome and a 20-foot wide Cyclone obstacle. The catapult, a 16-foot swing, launches swimmers into the water and has a swim platform and an enclosed splash zone.

The Aqua Challenge is open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. seven days a week. Participants must be at least 7 years old and be able to swim. One-hour sessions cost $20 and include a 15-minute safety briefing. You can reserve a session at

Tigertail Lake Recreational Center also has kayak, canoe and other watersport rentals, as well as a ropes course that is open to the public on select weekends. Tigertail is at 580 Gulf Stream Way in Dania Beach, beside the Fort Lauderdale Airport Tri-Rail station.
