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?

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.

We found the water park fun. It was a great few hours. We managed to get on each ride several times due to being school term time so wasn’t very busy. Plenty of lockers and changing rooms. Only thing was I booked online and paid...More

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

Visited on a Wednesday afternoon and had a fun time. Many slides, with a good variety. Half of the slides were outside, which would be great on a sunny day, but it was a cold rush to the stairs where it was warmer, or back...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!
