Splashdown Waterpark is a great day out for family and friends. There’s something for everyone – from big kids to little ones – with some of the UK’s most exciting waterflumes.For the thrill-seekers, brave the Screamer with its sheer vertical drop. Plunge into darkness on the Black Thunder. And hold on to your pants as you shoot down the Spacebowl like a human pinball. Or if that sounds a bit like hard work, just go with the flow on the Mississippi Drifter.There’s the fabulous Little Buccaneers SplashZone with a starter flume, water play area and Buccaneer Bay, our toddler swimming pool. And, on a hot summer’s day, Buccaneer Beach is the perfect spot for a splash with the little ones. There’s even somewhere to play for little landlubbers.We’re open all year with indoor rides in the winter. In the spring, we take the slide outside where the Mississippi pours into the Grand Canyon. And, in May, bring on the awesome Screamer Tower – it’s fluming good fun! What are you waiting for?

Rubbish experience; i went there with my kids and was constantly subjected to constant whistling and abuse from staff for waiting for my kids at the bottom of the slide. Female staff there were extremely argumentative and made me and children feel intimidated. The changing...More

Sorry to hear about your experience 13danksr. The main responsibility of our staff is to ensure no-one gets hurt, and therefore we do enforce a strict rule that all ride exits are clear at all times. I will pass your comments onto the management team...More

Had a great time on the flumes and I’m not a huge fan of rides. Gave some a miss! Would have been great on a sunny day but was still good. Avoid school holidays if you can! And choose your swimsuit wisely...

I took my niece and nephew here, they are aged 5 and 7. There's a great range of slides, and they are well labelled according to speed etc. Unfortunately, there isn't much for younger children to do if they're a little anxious, as many of...More

Family day out at Splashdown. What a great facility with some exhilarating slides. Luckily our children broke up for half term 1 week early so the place wasn't too busy.!! Will definitely go back again.

Great for a family trip or for a party- this water park would be absolutely fine for younger kids as well (about age 3 minimum I’d say excluding the big chutes). There’s a cafe on the side which is great for those parents who don’t...More

We didn't find it filthy at all and we went right in the middle of the school holidays. This place was one of our highlights of our holidays!
