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?

I enjoyed my time here although I only spent 2 hours here and the slides are well maintained and the staff friendly and there's plenty of other things to do in tower park but I advise you ring them and ask when they are open if you plan to visit them on a weekday out of holiday times.

Been here three times now! Every time it's slightly different with how to get in. Unisex changing rooms but is not much of an issue as all doors lock. Up keep of the place is great and staff members for the most part are friendly and helpful. Rides vary from easy to hard and are well labeled for those do... More

There are better water parks out there but this is a nice family pool. Everything is in close proximity so you can keep an eye for the younger kids. It's great fun no matter what age you are!

We decided to go to splashdown for a day out. It was a little expensive but overall it was very exciting and fun. Myself and my friends enjoyed ourselves. My younger sister, however, is a little scared of water slides and refused to go on any except one, which she climbed out of halfway through (It was a donut thing... More

We visited in October half term all of my children 11,6 and 3 were able to enjoy all of the rides as the height restriction was 1 meter! (except 1.2 infinity, only my eldest and myself rode this) the outside rides were still open too! My personal favourite was the dragon, it was well staffed but minority's of the rides... More
