Overview

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 at 1700hrs so whilst there were still some queues for the flumes they diminished as the time ticked by. Overall I would describe the venue as clean. Having read previous reviews I see some criticism over the cleanliness, I feel that’s a little...More

Yes it’s busy but what do people expect?! We were too busy enjoying ourselves to notice excess dirt 🙄 but it looked clean enough considering the huge turnover of bodies in there all the time so fair play to them. As for the flumes, they...More

Been twice now and that will be the last time. Cues are very big you need to be the first ones in to get on the flumes. The main issues are how dirty the place is, especially the outside area and the flumes outside they...More
