Waterpark bosses have told ITV Tyne Tees they will be ready for a 'perfect' weekend opening.

Alpamare Scarborough was originally due to open on Thursday but has been put back until Saturday.

Dr Anton Hoefter, chief executive officer of Alpamare told ITV Tyne Tees they were dealing with a number of problems, which should be remedied by the weekend.

We've had a number of problems cumulated. Right now we have to fix those problems, so we've delayed the opening by two days so we can make sure that when people come and when they are willing to pay the price, everything in here will be absolutely perfect.

– Dr Anton Hoefter, chief executive officer of Alpamare
