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?

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

We were very enthusiastic about this visit having recently done alton towers and Blackpool water parks. This waterpark in Poole does not match up anywhere near unfortunately. The changing rooms are dirty, really small and compact and the showers are over crowded. The slides themselves are OK as long as you are over 15, definitely not child friendly. The ride... More

We loved all these flumes, we had a day ticket and it flew by even though it was autumn and cold we still went on the outside flumes, the only thing I would say is the water ride with the yellow rubber rings, they are not really large enough for a full sized adult and after 6 hours of fluming...

Visited for the first time this week (October half term). I was prepared for it to be busy due to half term, but it seemed oversubscribed to the point of being dangerous (just too many people in a small space). The whole centre is very 'tired' and dirty. Very expensive for what it is. A nice change to take my... More

Making a booking helped entry easy and a 2 hour slot was long enough but some may want longer. There are numerous water slides of varying scariness, beware no swimming pool only slides. It was an immense morning with a confident 5 year old slide after slide, then the tubes which are easy for younger ones to sit in but... More

What a great day out, arrived at 2pm and stayed until it closed, was busy but not too busy for half term, got quieter through the afternoon. Kids has a great day loved every flume. Don't bother going if you not getting wet, my wife was board stiff 👎, send her to the retail park at hameorthy 👍
