Inside the Wet n Wild 'rave' as DJ Schak gets on the decks at abandoned water park

DJ Schak has celebrated 'making history' as he and a group of friends held a rave inside the abandoned Wet n Wild water park in North Shields.

On Thursday morning, videos started to surface online of police crashing the party. The group of lads congregated at the top of one of the towers of the once massively popular attraction, which closed its doors for a final time in 2019, with its sale to a local developer confirmed only last week.

And given that Wet n Wild is a place that they and many other Geordies have such fond memories of, a must for school trips, birthday parties and days out with friends for years, the lads took it upon themselves to have a gathering inside the place that was home to famous slide rides like the Kamakazi, Tornado and Black Hole.

On Thursday afternoon, it was confirmed that Northumbria Police had arrested three men on suspicion of causing a public nuisance, but hours later a fresh update was released to announced they'd been released with 'no further action being taken.'

And shortly after Schak took to Instagram to share photos and videos from a night that he and his pals surely won't forget. Sharing a series of photos and videos on his Insta grid of the group raving right next to one of the slides, as he played a series of tunes, including his own smash Jumpin' All Around, Schak wrote: "Wet n Wild oi oi. Last neet we made history! So buzzing we managed to get in before this gets demolished, I’ve wanted to film content in here for ages as it’s such an iconic part of North Shields."

The reaction to the post was huge, with one of his followers asking: "Did you go on the kamikaze?" as a second responded: "Hahaha class many mint memories there."

Among the many other comments on the post was a third from well known North East dance icon Mc Tazo, who wrote: "Class good old wet and wild".

The photos uploaded by Schak on Instagram show several of his mates went all out by donning fancy dress for the occasion, with one dressed in 70s style crushed velvet and another as the 118 man.

Commenting on the matter, a Northumbria Police spokesperson said: "Shortly after 9pm yesterday [Wednesday], we responded to a report of a disturbance at a disused premises on Rotary Way in North Shields. Officers attended and a small number of people had gathered to listen to music.

"Three men - aged 23, 32 and 33 - were interviewed in connection with the disturbance but have since been released with no further action to be taken."

Schak is no stranger to hosting raves in a unexpected locations. After entertaining on a Metro train in 2022, he was then on the decks at Greggs in Northumberland Street earlier this year, as the bakers welcomed him for their Sausage Rolls and Stompers rave.

He has also played by the side of the St James' Park pitch for both Newcastle and England games now, having done the honours last month for the Three Lions pre-Euro 2024 friendly against Bosnia.
