Visited sandcastle on a bank holiday monday. We went this day because the weather was not going to be too good. We got into the pool area around 10:30am and managed to get a table. Being a bank holiday we found the place a little too busy but kids still got to do all the rides. Plenty to do inside... More

I took my son and a friend for a day here for a treat. I fully expected it to be busy as it is the summer holidays however I did not expect it to be standing room only. It really was a case of cramming as many witless punters in to spend as much as possible in a glorified swimming... More

Had a great visit. Having read reviews talking about how busy it gets (and the advice they give in their own website) we made sure we were there at 9am. We got changed and were on slides by 9:02am, went on the big 4 rides 3 or 4 times each and never had a wait of over 5 mins. Apart... More

Decent enough water park, but very busy and a bit pricey, but overall would probably go again, especially if they lowered the prices.

There are some good points being able to skip the q's, the rest is negative, it was dirty in places, such as old wrists bands and plasters floating in the pool, people with babies not in swimming nappies. The biggest gripe was being unable to find a table as many tables were empty but had towels reserving the table. My... More

Son age 8 selected this day out and as it was rubbish weather we thought why not. We were expecting it to be busy and thats exactly what we got. The queues were ok and the longest we waited wasabout 20mins but you do queue twice once for the ring then for the ride which is annoying. The duelling dragons... More

We visited on a Friday morning in August, found it to be quite expensive as it cost £57 for a family of 5, 2adults and 3 children, if you wished to ride the 4 big slides it is an extra 6.50 per person. However for this price you can stay all day if you wish and you can also pay... More

We really enjoyed the sancastle waterpark. I booked online to avoid queues, we arrived at 9am and parked in the carpark next door then went straight in. We purchased a band with money on for drinks and food. We had an awesome time and the food was lovely. Only bad was how full it got about 11ish it was heaving... More
